Local rugby league teams, fans and players past and present are being invited to join the Men of League Foundation for a bowls day on Saturday, February 24 at Emerald Bowls Club.
Men of League Foundation’s Central Highlands Committee invites everyone young and old to join them for a chance to get together and have a fun day on the green – and in the process help raise important funds for the Men of League Foundation.
Central Highlands Committee President Mick Roach said he believed the day was sure to be a success for the Committee and encouraged everyone in the Central Highlands region who shares their love of rugby league to come along and participate.
“The Men of League Emerald Bowls Day will be a great day on the greens,” Mr Roach said.
“It will be a fun-filled, social day with lunch and lucky door prizes throughout the day to help raise funds, so even if your bowls game is off, you’ll still have a chance of coming away a winner.
“It will be a nice opportunity to get your mates together to form a team of four.”
In a further boost for the bowls day, former Queensland Maroons players Dave Shillington and Matt Ballin will join Emerald Origin legends Alan McIndoe and Steven Bell on the greens as special guests.
“With Matty and Shillo joining Macca and Belly, be sure to join us to play a few ends, catch up after the rugby league off-season and get your tips and predictions in before the NRL season kicks off,” Mr Roach said.
“Funds raised from the day go to helping the Men of League Foundation to care for those from within the rugby league community who may have fallen on hard times and need some assistance.
“We help people with a range of services from visits to those who may be feeling socially isolated to household improvements and financial support.
“We hope to see lots of people come along to our Emerald Bowls Day.
“If you can’t join us on Saturday (February 24), but would like to support us, we’d love for you to join the Foundation.”
