Annual prostate cancer charity day
Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club will be holding its annual Ron Pursehouse prostate cancer charity day on June 22.
The proceeds from the event will be donated to Central Coast Health to assist Gosford and Wyong hospitals to purchase specialised equipment to improve and speed up recovery time after urology cancer treatment.
Over the past two years, Umina Beach Men's Bowling Club has raised over $30,000 in association with the Everglades and Ettalong Bowling Clubs.
Other bowling clubs on the Central Coast have also been encouraged to hold similar days which will benefit the community.
The day will consist of an afternoon of bowls, followed by the drawing of the raffle.
Prizes include a five-night holiday at Forster, jewellery, and a seafood buffet cruise on Sydney Harbour and other items from local businesses.
Also to be auctioned is a framed signed Wallaby Jersey by Eric Tweedale, the only remaining 1940s Wallabies player, a signed Central Coast Mariners' jersey and a year 2000 Olympic flag.
Members of the public are welcome, and raffle numbers will be on sale from 11am and the draw and auction will take place between 4:15pm and 5.30pm.
Bowlers interested in the afternoon bowls are requested to contact the bowls office.
