League fundraiser for flood victims

HERE’S your chance to help the Clarence Valley flood victims and meet Gold Coast Titans footballers at the same time.

The Park Beach Bowling Club is organising the gala event on Sunday.

“All are welcome. You don’t even have to be a bowler to participate,” a club spokeswoman said.

The bowls tournament will run from 9am and the cost is $10 per person.

A sausage sizzle will be on from 12.30pm with a gold coin donation.

The day will also feature entertainment by Ziggy from First Avenue from 12.30pm to 4.30pm, while barefoot bowls will take place from 1pm with a cost of $10 per person.

The stars of the day, the Gold Coast Titans, will be appearing at the club from 2pm to 4pm, fresh from their NRL pre-season hit-out against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at BCU International Stadium the night before.

They will also be available to sign autographs throughout the afternoon.

Plenty of raffles will also be held throughout the day along with an auction of rugby league and bowls memorabilia.

“We have been planning this fundraiser for several weeks and the good thing about it is all the money raised will go to flood victims in the local area,” the spokeswoman said.

“One of our directors has a good relationship with the Titans and they were more than happy to lend their support.”
