Golf, bowls raises $6000

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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.
