Jimmy's Golf Day - Supporting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Mercy Hospital for Women.

Jimmy's Golf Day is a charity day which raises money to support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Mercy Hospital for Women.

"Jimmy's" (as the event is now affectionately known), was founded by Phil McGough in 2012 as a way of giving back to Mercy Health following the excellent care and attention his son Jimmy received when born at 23 weeks, the event has grown organically thanks to the passion, care and interest of major sponsors, the Rosanna Golf Club and the broader Heidelberg/Rosanna community.

Over the last four years an incredible $130,000 has been raised.

For 2016 the bar has been set high. We are off to a great start with some key sponsors and golfers on board. But we need your help!

How does Jimmy's make a difference?

Jimmy’s raises funds for families who have a baby in the NICU at Mercy Health. It specifically assists families to cover some of the extra financial costs that parents incur when devoted to caring for their new baby.

Assistance with local accommodation solutions and financial assistance when under emotional and financial duress when a newborn is undergoing life saving care and treatment is of enormous help to parents. At this time, many parents are faced with commuting long distances on a daily basis, often while supporting other children at home.

This can put enormous pressures on the family unit.

Jimmy’s goes some way to help alleviating some of these pressures at what can be an extraordinarily difficult time.

This year's event promises to be full of fun, colour and entertainment for a very worthy cause.

The golf competition for the day will be a 4 ball Ambrose format at the stunning Rosanna Golf Club, the premier private club of the inner east, situated in a picturesque valley where the Yarra and Plenty Rivers meet. Guests can then look forward to enjoying dinner and speeches in the newly refurbished Rosanna Golf Club clubhouse.

An outstanding selection of speakers is currently being compiled and will be announced soon.

The night will conclude with a highly anticipated charity auction with a great range of items on offer from sponsors and supporters including golf items, sports memorabilia and more.
