Bowls day to aid DV charity

Argyle Lodge members Corey Doran and Peter Hooper invite you to join their Charity Bowls Day on 5 May.

Get your team together and hit the green for a worthy cause.

Argyle Masonic Lodge, Forest Hill, is holding its Charity Bowls Day at the Laidley Bowls Club on 5 May.

This year, the beneficiary is the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation.

Argyle Masonic Lodge secretary Corey Dornan said the Lodge selected a different charity for the bowls day each year and this foundation aligned closely with their values.

“It lines up with a number of our core values, particularly respect for women,” he said.

The charity seeks to address domestic and family violence through education and support to create a society committed to eliminating domestic and family violence.

There will also be raffles on the day, a lucky door prize, or you can make a cash donation to the cause.

“The key element of the day is to fundraise as much as we can,” Mr Doran said.

“The bowls club is contributing the green fees for the day.

“Our members are throwing in the prizes for the raffles.

“Everything made on the day is then doubled with Hand Heart Pocket, the Freemason’s Charity.”

All the funds raised from the bowls day will be matched, dollar for dollar.

Green fees are $25 per person and includes a barbecue lunch.

“It’s fairly well action-packed,” Mr Doran said.

“It’s a day of bowls divided into two, there’s a lunch which the Lodge puts on, as well as raffles and a guest speaker.”

A guest speaker from the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation will present in the afternoon and speak of the cause and their activities.

You can get together a team of four, but single players are also welcome.

The bowls day starts at 9am for 9:30am on the green.

“Come along and support a worthy cause, come along and show your support for the Freemasons in the area,” Mr Doran said.

“This is a labour of love for the men in support of the women of the community.

“It’s a big part of what it is to be a Freemason, is how we behave toward others, how we behave as active members of society.

“It’s one of the ways we give back.”
