Golf, bowls raises $6000
It was a fun filled afternoon at Tocumwal Golf and Bowls club last week as families from Tocumwal Public School turned out for a day of fundraising.
Hosted by Toc Public School’s Parents and Citizens Association, the day included golf, bowls, skillzone, snag golf (kids golf on the lawn), face painting, a carvery dinner, silent auctions, raffles and entertainment by band ‘Me and The Girl’.
The biggest seller at the silent auction was a new barbecue which sold for $150.
More than 150 people attended and the day raised $6000 for the school.
In the lead up to the day, students were asked to guess how many golf balls were in a specially designed shape ‘T’.
The winner was Lizzie Locke. Her lucky guess of 2366 was the closest to the actual amount — 2353.
Event organiser Maggie Booth said it was a great day for the families who attended.
‘‘The day was a big success with a lot of our families and Golf and Bowls Club members participating.
‘‘We certainly look forward to running it again next year as a fundraiser for our public school.
‘‘We’d like to thank our major sponsors, Wilson Farming, GSR, Rob Crow Real Estate, Tocumwal Golf and Bowls Club, Kelly Grains, Tocumwal Accounting, Baldwins Buses, Boomerang Way Caravan Park, Wastle Electrics, Tainton Refrigeration and Tocumwal Race Club,’’ Mrs Booth said.
