MOAMA Bowling Club hosted its inaugural Prostate Cancer Awareness Day earlier this month, and it was described as a fabulous success.

More than 80 bowlers graced the greens for a fun day of bowls and entertainment.

Prizes such as a brand new one-off set of bowls and a signed framed Murray Steamers BPL shirt had all of the participants happy to purchase tickets, with all sales and donations going to an incredibly important and relevant cause.

“You don’t have to look very far to find someone who either has, or did have prostate cancer”, said Moama Bowling Club’s Apollo Birch. Some of the numbers and stats are insane, bigger than those of breast cancer and it just doesn’t get the same awareness (as breast cancer).”

The day raised more than $1700 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and our local community Prostate Cancer Program.

“We had great support from our members as well as the club itself but we hope to make it even bigger and better next year,” Birch said.

He promised the fundraising day would return in 2018, and become an annual event on the MBC greens.
