GLORIOUS winter sunshine set the scene for the second IWC Charity Golf Day on Saturday, which drew a strong crowd.

The event was held at Gayndah Golf Club as part of IWC's celebrations for Reconciliation Week 2019, and money raised will go to Rotary Lodge.

IWC communications manager Janette Young said many people had been involved in making the event a success.

"Forty-five people took part in the event this year,” Young said.

"Last year we raised $1600 for LifeFlight, but this year we're hoping to do even better.”

IWC North Burnett assistant manager Cynthia George, who co-ordinated the event, said the fundraising total was still being tallied, but thanked the businesses that got involved.

George said reconciliation was at the heart of what IWC did.

"Reconciliation in action is core business for us every day,” she said.

"This event was a great way to bring people together to celebrate our great community.

"Teams of three played and the overall winners were Brent Chambers, Brian Nugent and Peter Ulcoq.”

She also thanked those who volunteered to make the event happen: Celia Wain, Kirsten Morris, Trevor Darlington, Clem Shadford, Les Hegarty, Kit George, Kailu George, Kathy Ratcliff, Linden George, Jack, George, Kylie George, Tekiya George, and Gayndah Golf Club members Di and Lindsay Baker, Jim Myers, Steve Gallagher and Jeremy Zahl.
