Charity bowls raises $32,600
Charity bowls at Ettalong Bowling Club has raised $32,600 so far this year for Central Coast Kids in Need.
Around 50 bowlers attended the club's May event, raising $1190.
The auction of a bike donated by Jim Cassidy and won by Vicky Young brought another $125.
The Wednesday Bowlers then donated $185 to bring the figure up to $1500 on the day.
"Our year-to-date total now stands at $22,600 if we include the $15,000 donated by the three Bendigo Banks on the Central Coast," said organiser Mr Ken Dixon.
"The Ettalong Bowling Club has also donated $10,000 from its Club Grants allocation, so all up we can lay claim to having raised $32,600 so far in 2021.
"What an achievement."
Mr Dixon said Central Coast Kids in Need raised money to help families who had seriously ill children with prolonged illness.
"Most of these children are cancer patients, others with organ transplants and premature babies with life threatening illnesses.
"The money is used to defray the costs of accommodation."
The next charity bowls day will be on Sunday, June 20.
