'LEGENDS FOR LUPUS'  Moonah Links Charity Day, 5 October

“The “Lupus for Legends” Golf Day aims to raise awareness of Lupus, a debilitating autoimmune disease of which the general population has little knowledge. Knowledge of Lupus usually flows when a family member or a friend is, unfortunately, diagnosed with Lupus.

It is currently very difficult to both diagnose and treat and that is why Moonah Links is pairing up with Lupus Victoria to raise both awareness and much needed funds for Lupus research.
