ALMOST $3000 raised from a charity golf challenge yesterday is the latest contribution to the future fund created for injured Albury Tigers footballer James McQuillan.

The fourth annual Domain Challenge, hosted by The Border Mail, saw more than 60 border real estate agents from rival agencies come together at the Albury Golf Course for an 18-hole competition.

Real Estate Institute of NSW Albury division chairman Greg Wood, of Wood Real Estate, said it was a fantastic day that raised $2800.

“We had to postpone the event three weeks ago because of rain, but the weather has been kind today,” he said.

“We had an auction over lunch that raised $2000 towards the charity fund.”

Pat Murphy, of PJ Murphy Real Estate, won the auction — a full page advert in The Border Mail’s Domain.

“I have always been involved in local footy and I played for Lavington for six years,” he said.

“I have a lot of friends in the football community and at Albury, so it was well worth supporting this cause.”

Georgette Nehme Real Estate in Lavington took out first place, followed by Stockdale Leggo, Wodonga and Ray White, Howlong.
