RURAL Lifestyle Options Australia and Beaudesert Community Kindergarten each received a $700 bonus today.
They were selected as recipients of funds raised by the annual Beaudesert Master Builders BussQ Golf Day held at Kooralbyn Valley Golf Course on May 3.
Master Builders regional manager John Duncalfe, who was in town to present the funds, said thanks to sponsors including Vancisco Industries, Ramada Resort, Beaudesert Frame and Trusses, Mitre 10, Scenic Motors Beaudesert and Enright's Sawmill, the players were able to raise funds and also have a great day of golf.
"This year was the biggest ever number of players and many of the sponsors have already committed to taking part again in 202," he said.
"We are humbled by the support we get from local businesses and out members for the event, without them we would not be able to raise the money that goes towards these local charities.
"It is tremendous so see these funds go to such worthy causes, selected by Julie McDonald from Beaudesert Frame and Trusses and Clint Spence from Beaudesert Mitre 10 who are both 30 year members of Mater Builders."
The presentations were made at RLOA headquarters by Mr Duncalfe, Ms McDonald and Mr Spence.
Anita Kleinschmidt and Tish Harris from Beaudesert Community Kindergarten said they were grateful for the funds, which they had already allocated towards a teachers' wish list of resources including books floor rugs and musical instruments for the kindy.
RLOA spokesman Nick Power said the funds were a welcome surprise and would help pay for essential upgrades to medical equipment at the organisation's respite accommodation.
