Gen­er­ous Gin Gin in fundraiser

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

WE ARE all aware that the Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion en­deav­ours to grant the wishes of chil­dren with life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses.

Gin Gin Bowls Club hosted a fundrais­ing day on Sun­day to help this won­der­ful char­ity.

The Make-A-Wish Foun­da­tion has op­er­ated in Australia since 1985, and many vol­un­teers and spon­sors have given their time and ef­forts to rais­ing funds for this won­der­ful cause.

Gin Gin Bowls Club put on a bowl­ing day of teams of four play­ers: two bowlers and two non-bowlers.

The Gin Gin Li­ons Club again cooked the bar­be­cue, and the Make-A-Wish vol­un­teers pre­pared the sal­ads for a de­li­cious lunch, fol­lowed by a huge cent sale.

Raf­fles were popular, with some lovely prizes.

First prize win­ner of a bar­be­cue was Bar­bara Dun­stan who then gen­er­ously do­nated it to the club.

Guest play­ers Jim and Cathy Man­der­son.
