Lifesavers blown away by support
IT was standing room only on the greens of the C-ex Woolgoolga Bowls Club as more than 100 players took to the rinks in the name of charity.
The Woolgoolga Surf Life Saving Club staged its 34th annual Black and White charity bowls day and the support received from those in attendance again blew event organisers away.
More than $6000 in much-needed funds was raised for the local Surf Life Saving Club.
Club representative Tom Holder admitted that the continued support from so many continues to overwhelm club members.
“The organisers and surf club members are at a loss for words for such community generosity,” Holder said.
The money was raised through more than 50 businesses supporting the day and the large number of bowlers in attendance all paying their green fees as well as supporting the raffles.
The major raffle winners were Pat Mitchell, Sunny Messner and R. Josh who at least got something back for their support of the day.
Plans are already under way for next year’s event which is hoped will raise even more money for the club.
