Bowls day for prostate cancer research
Everglades Men's Bowling Club bowlers recently spent a day raising funds for prostate cancer research and equipment at the Central Coast Area Health.
"Bowls commenced at 12:30pm with teams from Umina, Ettalong Woy Woy and Avoca and concluded when a lighting storm interrupted play after 3pm," said Club publicity officer, Mr Brian Dolan.
"The drawing of the raffles and the auction commenced soon after, with highlights of a $700 mower and a P and O cruise being auctioned off.
"Final figures are still not in, but total monies raised were well over $6000 for the day.
"Not too bad when the figure for the year before was only $5000," Mr Dolan said.
"A cheque will be presented to Central Coast area health later in the year when the other clubs on the Peninsula complete their fundraising.
