Whether you are a fan or a first timer at Barefoot Bowls, Kiama Bowls Club is keen to get you down to its second Charity Day to raise funds for a number of good causes.
“Last time we had a charity day, we raised $10,500 for the McGrath Foundation,” says the Club’s Mike Yalden.
“This time we decided to help a number of organisations with their fundraising rather than pick one cause.”
Apart from making donations to breast and prostrate cancer research, the money raised on the day will be shared between Friends of Blue Haven, Kiama Surf Club, Kiama Show Society and Kiama Lions Club.
“In their different ways, these organisations make Kiama a better place to live,” says Mike. “This is a way for our Club to give back to them, by taking some of the burden of organising fundraising away from them.
“We are hoping that the community will take this opportunity to spend a fun few hours with us.”
Ten dollars from each entry fee will start the fundraising off. Then thanks to generous sponsors, the day will be action packed, with spot prizes, raffles and an auction.
“I have been able to get a fantastic number of donations from local business for both auction and raffles for the day,” says Mike. “If people can’t make it for the whole day, they are very welcome to come down to bid on auction items at 3pm.”
The event is being launched by Gareth Ward MP, and the Federal Member Ann Sudmalis promising to pop by.
