Fund-raiser held in aid of Stepping Stone Hospice

In a fun-filled night, Ekurhuleni Bowls (EKB) hosted a fund-raiser and charity event on December 4 at the Alberton Bowling Club.

The annual event was in aid of Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services and Brainy Birds Exotic Bird Rehab, with a percentage of the funds raised going towards the organisations.

Guests were entertained by a musical performance by The Bobby Louw Band, and other guest artists. The artists that took to the stage entertained attendees with oldies and rock music while they enjoyed mouth-watering treats.
In the past year, the same charity event reportedly raised at least R60 000, which was then handed over to respective organisations.

Grant George of EKB said: “The event was mainly hosted to assist these organisations and to also help cover a few of our expenses in bowling. The funds made from this event will also be of great help to Brainy Birds Exotic Bird Rehab, an organisation which is on the verge of losing its place.”
