Harlequins to raise funds

FUNDRAISING is an important component of any successful sporting club and Gympie Cricket’s Harlequins are raising the bar this year.

Harlequins player Danny Shepperson is organising a charity darts tournament for August.

The fundraising venture will be one of the biggest for Harlequins this year.

It is planned to have 16 teams of four players taking part and a charity or sporting club stands to benefit financially from the competition.

A very useful $1000 will be donated by the winning team to a sporting club or charity of their choice.

The winning team also gets a slice of the spoils – a $200 pub voucher.

Meanwhile, a $100 pub voucher will go to the second placed team.

Shepperson said he hoped the tournament would help promote a bit of goodwill.

“There are some great prizes to be won by the winning teams but we hope to do some good with the $1000 going to a sporting club or charity,” he said.

“It will make a big difference to the organisation that is nominated to receive the money.”

The charity darts tournament will take place at the Community Band Hall, 16 Red Hill Road, from 1pm on Saturday, August 14.

Nominations, costing $20, are now being accepted. Contact Danny Shepperson on 0423 164 679 or by email – info@harlequinsscc.com.au

Shepperson extended his thanks the numerous Gympie businesses to have backed the charity darts tournament, saying their involvement “made it all possible”.
