Being Turf Farmers, we are always keen to help the grassroots of the community. It wasn’t too long ago that the team at Go Turf headed up to the Glass House Bowls Club to donate a 320 Wanderer, Car-Top Tinnie to the club’s annual fishing competition.
Who is the Glass House Bowls Club?
Glass House Bowls Club began as a bowls and social club in the late 1950s and has since grown to be a popular dining and restaurant facility for the local community. For the past 17 years, the club has held an annual fishing competition to raise funds for local charities. Since 2011, the club has been supporting the local paediatric services through the Sunshine Coast University Hospital charity Wishlist.
This year, the Glass House Bowls Club is hosting their 18th annual fishing competition from August 9th – 11th, in the hopes to raise even more funds than previous years. For seven years, the club has raised over $27,000 bringing together the generosity of local businesses towards the noble Wishlist cause.
Go Turf’s Charity Donation
While we aren’t bowlers or from all account’s great fishers, it’s important to us to give back to our local community with three generations of Heilig’s being patrons of the Glass House Bowls club. This year, we decided to purchase a 320 Wandered, Car-Top Tinnie from Brisbane Yamaha and donated it to the club, who will be auctioning it off as the raffle prize for this year’s competition. The lucky winner of the raffle will also receive five cartons of beer (brand of the winner’s choice) to accompany their future fishing endeavours.
Go Turf’s Club Donation
If you have been to the club recently, you may have noticed the freshly laid turf on the playing grounds as well. Following the cheque handover to Wishlist earlier this year, we surprised them with a full resurface of the playing areas to ensure the ongoing safety of the bowlers.
The Glass House Bowls Club is a very humble group of people, encouraging the local community and businesses to support one another. The Heilig family are very appreciative of all the work they do, so resurfacing the turf was the least we could do alongside our recent boat donation.
