Darwin Airport Charity Golf Day
Darwin International Airport is a regular and enthusiastic supporter of charity and not-for-profit groups in the Territory. One of the most prominent fundraisers is the annual Darwin Airport Charity Golf Day held every August. Funds are raised every year for a specific cause and to support a Top End charity.
“The charity golf day was originally conceived as a chance for the airport community (staff, tenants, suppliers and contractors) to get together for a fun and interactive day, while contributing to a charitable cause. We believe the airport community extends beyond our boundary and we encourage businesses that work with us to get involved in this worthwhile event,” said Northern Territory Airports Chief Executive Officer, Ian Kew.

Darwin Airport 2012 Charity Golf Day
This year the Charity Golf Day was held on Friday 10 August 2012, in support of the Northern Territory Branch of the Make A Wish Foundation. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors who helped make the 2012 Golf Day a successful and memorable day. Total amount raised from this year's event will be announced shortly.
Money raised will be put towards a purpose build BBQ trailer including sign writing to incorporate Make A Wish branding. The trailer will be an important asset for the charity as they will be able to organise their own fundraising activities at local events and create greater awareness of the organisation as the trailer is transported around town acting as a billboard.
The 2012 Golf Day theme was appropriately 'I wish I was..." with participants encouraged to be as creative as they like when designing costumes, to reflect what they wish they could be or do.
