July charity bowls event raises $890

Charity bowls at Ettalong Bowling Club has raised $890 at the July event.

"We had 48 bowlers at our July event and it was another great day," said organiser Mr Ken Dixon.

He said the money went to Central Coast Kids in Need to bring the year-to-date total to around $8200.

"The Wednesday Ettalong Bowlers again chipped in $100 for the food while John Orme's auction of a hand-crafted doll raised another $50.

"Anne Dixon was the winning bidder.

"The Spider was won for the first time by Simon Anderson.

"The Wednesday Bowlers Hamper was won by Bob Pickard.

"Alan Button sold our raffle tickets and Chardy collected the fees.

"Phil Dunn collected the spider money.

"The Who Are We bowlers also played bowls with us.

"The winning rink draw was won by Anne Dixon, Julie Vale and Vicky Young and Anne was voted player of the match."

Mr Dixon said Central Coast Kids in Need raised money to assist families who had seriously ill children with prolonged illness.

"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."

Mr Dixon said the charity day was held on the third Sunday of the month and the next one would be on Sunday, September 18.
