Tropical evening to raise money

GET dressed in your Hawaiian best and head down to the Bundaberg Golf Club this Saturday to enjoy a night of tropical island fun - and help raise money for a good cause while you're at it.

The Tropical Evening event has been planned to kick off the golf club's social calendar for the year, as well as to raise money for an orphanage in Kenya.

Organiser Sandra McLeod said she would travel to Kenya in April to visit her sponsor child, six-year-old Josh.

"The money from the raffles will go to the Nakuru Baby Orphanage, and also Kenya Health," she said.

Mrs McLeod said the money would be used for items such as vital medical supplies for the hospital and clothing.

"We raised $2000 last year, so I'm hoping we will be able to do that again," she said.

"But whether it's $10 or $1000 - it's more than what they had the day before."

The evening starts at 7pm, and people are asked to pull on their Hawaiian shirts and sarongs to get in the spirit.

Tickets are $25 each.

Call the golf club on 4152 6765.
