Del wants to pin down marathon sponsors
MORE than 180 junior bowlers are expected to take part in next year's marathon 18-hour bowling event help to raise funds for the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation.
Bundaberg Junior Tenpin Bowling Association secretary Del Ross, a retired registered nurse who worked for more than 20 years at Bundaberg Hospital, is co-ordinating the fundraiser involving members bowling from 6am until midnight.
"The allocation of money raised will be 90% to the Foundation to buy medical equipment and 10% to the Junior Tenpin Association to help with coaching, travel and accommodation when the juniors compete in other areas," she said.
Ms Ross said the association was now looking for donations and sponsorship from the community.
"There are three levels of corporate donations with gold at $2000 and above, silver $1000-$2000 and bronze any amount up to $1000," she said.
"We are also looking for donations, money, goods or services to assist with raffles and prizes on the day."
The charity fundraiser will take place on Sunday March 10.
