Why Rick Sindorff chose to participate in BGOC
Rick Sindorff , along with his family and friends raised $488 for the BGOC. This is his story.
Our little BGOC came about initially because of the chance to win Ponting and Gilly come to our game!
Our mate Tony has Brain Cancer and I thought it would be a good idea to enter. Best case scenario we play cricket in Tony’s yard, otherwise we raise some money for the Ponting Foundation.
Tony was diagnosed approx 6 months ago and he is a Gentleman with a wife Sandy and 5 wonderful children.
Tony and 3 mates (myself included) have been playing cards and golf for 10 years. The score is 20 all! We play for a much sought after trophy that my wife made. It is a wooden shield with a card of each suit on it and a cut down golf club. All good fun when we catch up.Obviously Tony’s time is in the lap of the Gods.
We did play cricket at a local park on Australia Day. A small quiet gathering, but a bit of fun. Tony was well enough to attend for an hour and we had a sausage in bread and sauce!.
We thank you Rick for sharing your story, because of your support we are able to donate your $488 to a series of Tasmanian-based health organisations including Spurr Wing, Appin Hall, David Collins Leukaemia Foundation of Tasmania and Hospice Support Volunteers.
