Each year the Beenleigh Bowls Club ladies organise Pink Day to raise awareness and donations for Breast Cancer Research.
This cause is close to the hearts of many of our members and we always get a wonderful turnout. Our club also regularly opens its carpark to the Breast Screening truck to assist our community with free mammograms.
Pink Day is open to all bowls members, and they are encouraged to wear their favourite/craziest pink attire.
This year we played two games of triples with a yummy morning tea and lunch provided to all players. All our raffle prizes on the day are donated by our bowlers and this year we raised a whopping $400 just from the raffle ticket sales.
Our club also donated half the green fees from the day to the cause.
The day wouldn’t have happened without our amazing volunteers and Ladies Committee members.
As you can see from the photo, everyone got into the spirit, and it was a sea of pink on our greens.
