Charity bowls raises $1320 at Ettalong
Around 60 bowlers have raised $1320 at Ettalong Bowling Club's September charity bowls event on Sunday, September 18.
It brings the total raised this year to $9500.
"The Wednesday Ettalong Bowlers again chipped in $100 for the food while John Orme's auction raised another $50," said organiser Mr Ken Dixon.
"We had heaps of prizes and many prolific winners.
"The Rebels were there in support as usual as were our Social Club supporters who have been attending for many years.
"The Who Are We bowlers also played bowls with us.
"The winning rink draw was won by Vicky Redrup, Fred Kelly and Mick Redrup, over Cath and Kerry Watkins and Col Nichols."
Proceeds of the charity days go to Central Coast Kids in Need, which raises money to assist families who have 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 at Ronald Mcdonald House and Parent Hostel Rooms while the kids are receiving their treatment.
"The funds are also used to cover travel costs, equipment requirements and pharmacy accounts."
The charity day is held on the third Sunday of the month, with the next day being Sunday, October 16.
