Club hosts Breast Cancer Foundation fundraiser

 

Sunday April 27 saw the closing day of the bowling season at The Club in Mangawhai. The day was also marked with a fundraising event for The Breast Cancer Foundation, the highlight being the sponsored head shave of five sporting volunteers from the local community.

Chantal Cattermoul approached The Club several weeks earlier with the idea of marking an excellent bowling season by holding the fundraiser, enlisting a gang of helpers that swung quickly into action seeking donations and support from local businesses and Club members.

The afternoon started with bowls followed by a raffle with over 50 prizes, then a corner to corner competition using indoor bowls at $2 a throw. These events raised in excess of $1150. 

The main event, the head shave, was to follow. 

Retired stock auctioneer Dave Lincoln led the auction, getting members to dig deep with their pledges for the first cut, rest of hair and beard and moustache. 

New club member Keren Guy spontaneously volunteered to also have her head shaved prompting a frenzy of donations in excess of $350.

Thanks to a generous community over $5,300 was raised, including a $1000 donation from The Club.

Organisers would like to thank Mangawhai Pharmacy, Mangawhai Books & Gifts, Mangawhai Physiotherapy, Carters, GJ Gardner, Meant to Be, Zest Products, Mangawhai Estates Orchard, Bammas, Bazaar World, North Glass, Village Four Square, and Placemakers.
