Almost 3 weeks on from the Grace House Golf Day 2023, we reflect on what a great day we had sponsoring the event. Here at The Unite Group, we are keen supporters of Grace House and the fantastic work they do. As you will know our Director, Paul, is known to often be found on the Golf course. So we felt sponsoring this event was a no-brainer for us! The perfect opportunity to maximise our support for Grace House.
On Friday 16th June, we took to Ramside Golf Course for the annual Grace House Golf Day 2023. Joined by 14 fantastic teams, we enjoyed a great day of golf in perfect weather conditions. Held amidst the picturesque greens of the prestigious Ramside Golf Club, this event brought together passionate golfers and philanthropists alike, all driven by a common purpose—to support the vital work of Grace House North East. With a shared commitment to making a positive impact in the community, participants rallied together for an unforgettable day of camaraderie and charitable giving.
Setting the Stage for a Memorable Event
The rolling fairways of Ramside Golf Club provided the ideal backdrop for Grace House North East‘s Charity Golf Day. Participants arrived early in the morning, greeted by the warm embrace of the summer sun and the shared anticipation of a day filled with memorable moments. As golf enthusiasts and supporters of Grace House North East mingled, laughter and conversation filled the air, forming new connections and strengthening existing bonds, all in the spirit of giving back to the community.
Teaming Up for a Worthy Cause
Our team here at The Unite Group and Social+ worked closely with the team at Grace House in the weeks leading up to the event. Ensuring they planned the best day possible for attendees and most importantly Grace House. Our in-house Digital Marketing team, Social+, was present at the event covering the socials for the charity. Ensuring those who couldn’t make the day didn’t miss out on the action.
Business leaders, community advocates, and sports enthusiasts all united under one common goal: to raise funds and awareness for Grace House North East. Their unwavering dedication ensured the success of the charity event, attracting generous sponsors, enthusiastic golfers, and avid supporters. The teams were assembled, each player ready to showcase their skills and compete in friendly yet spirited matches, all while staying focused on the true purpose of the day—to contribute towards the remarkable work of Grace House North East.
A Day of Sportsmanship and Giving
Here at The Unite Group, we had 2 teams taking part in the competition. One led by Paul and another by our Helpdesk Engineer Morgan. Morgan is relatively new to our team. So, this event was the perfect opportunity for him to get to know some of our customers a little better. Morgan’s team narrowly missed out on the 3rd place spot losing out on a better back nine. But they all enjoyed the day nonetheless.
Beyond the game, the event featured various fundraising activities. Including silent auctions and raffles, designed to further support Grace House North East. Generous donations from individuals and businesses added to the excitement and served as a testament to the collective desire to create lasting change in the lives of vulnerable children and their families. We had Chris situated over on hole 9 with our ‘Spin The Wheel’. Offering golfers the gamble of either moving back a tee or forwards if they were lucky! As well as one of our vans full of balloons. Offering participants the opportunity to guess how many with the chance to win a prize! All just raising any additional funds possible for the fantastic work Grace House does!
Raising over £9000 the day was a success! We would like to thank all who supported the day and contributed to this. Congratulations to the team from Evolve Technology who were the winners!
We are very proud to have been able to support the Grace House Golf Day 2023. We look forward to continuing our support throughout 2023 and into 2024 as we have agreed to sponsor this event again next year!
