Charity event aims to bowl over cancer

ABOUT 100 people attended the Coolangatta Tweed Tenpin to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation this week.

The Tuesday night event, organised by the Professionals Coolangatta Tweed, raised $5400.

"The night was a fantastic success and keeps getting bigger and better every year," Jodie Hall, of the Professionals, said.

"A great night was had by all with fancy costumes, lots of laughter, some serious bowlers and some not so serious."

Over the past 10 years the Professionals branch has raised $74,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

"We encouraged everyone to theme their team for the event and it was great to see so many people get into the spirit," Jodie said.

"We had a great variety of costumes, with everything from Fiscal Fairies to Top Hat Supremes, all helping to create a great atmosphere on the night."

The best dressed team was GJ Gardiner, with a Bedrock Bowler theme.
