The Riding for the Disabled Charity Golf Day will go ahead on Friday as organisers look to raise vital funds for the Griffith and Leeton branch of the organisation.
International Day of People with Disability committee co-ordinator Christine Tomlinson was hopeful they would be able to raise a substantial amount of money to build upon their outstanding efforts over the past nine years.
"This is our tenth year, and in the last nine years we have raised over $42,000," she said.
"I have been on the International Day of People with Disability committee for about 15 years give or take and it was sorting of fading away a little bit, but we wanted to stimulate it and get more people involved in it, and with that, we came up with the charity golf day.
"We went with Riding for the Disabled, to begin with, and since we got such a great response and it covers Griffith as well as Leeton we stayed with it.
"The people from Riding for the Disabled said it is their major fundraiser for the year now and they do rely on this money because it costs so much to look after the horses. I was quite astounded, but they said it costs 3-4 thousand dollars per horse per year which is a lot of money.
Numbers for this year's event is already looking strong with around 15 teams already registered, and Mrs Tomlinson thank those sponsors who had come on board despite the difficult around dealing with the pandemic.
"We have spoken to quite a few around town, and we understand it has been a hard year with COVID for the businesses," she said.
"I'm really thankful to those who have come on board."
Mrs Thomlinson also thanked the Griffith Golf Club for their ongoing support saying that without their help this event wouldn't be able to go ahead.
"It's $30 per player to take part, and the only fees we have to cover is the green fees, and the golf club has come on board to help us out with that," she said.
"James (Lethlan) and especially Wayne (Moat) bend over backwards to help us every year."
