LEETON'S Joan Dartnell has been organising the town's MS charity golf day for countless years and she continues to have a favourite part each time it rolls around.
The event was held at the Leeton golf course on Sunday to raise funds for those living with multiple sclerosis in the MIA.
The heartbreaking disease has no cure, which makes the fundraising efforts of the MIA branch of MS Australia all the important.
All of the money raised by the MIA group goes towards helping those in the area with the condition.
Much of the time, funds are used to help with buying important equipment, renovations at the home and more.
Mrs Dartnell said the golf day was a vital cog in the group's fundraising wheel.
"This year we had 108 players taking part ... anything over 100 is amazing," she said.
"What I love about it every year is the generosity shown by people.
"It's those who play every year, it's the business houses who support us. Everyone respects what we do and why we do it.
"I enjoy raising awareness of MS every year."
Mrs Dartnell believes there are more than 55 people in the MIA living with MS that the group knows about.
However, she knows there are also others and was hopeful they too would one reach out.
"It's about providing support in so many different ways," she said.
"That's why days like the golf day are so important in terms of our fundraising. All of the money helps local people."
Mrs Dartnell thanked all of those who contributed to the day, the committee, and Jason Mimmo who helped co-ordinate the event.
