The Bundaberg Catholic Women’s League will be spreading the ‘luck of the Irish' at its annual St Patrick’s Day cent sale fundraiser.
For more than half a century Bundaberg Catholic Women’s League members have been supporting each other and the local community through their association.
Bundaberg Catholic Women's League president Maureen Ewing said the league would hold its annual fundraiser at Brothers Sports Club to coincide with the celebration of Ireland's patron saint on St Patrick’s Day.
“I’ve been in BCWL for well over 55 years and the group was established 57 years ago,” Maureen said.
“We strive to help the community and this cent sale aims to raise funds to help charities, and it’s also a social occasion.
“The cent sale started out once upon a time as a fashion parade, and it's bloomed and grown over the years.”
Bundaberg Catholic Women’s League member Olga Rosolen said everyone was welcome to attend the St Patrick’s Day cent sale with funds raised on the day going to local and Australian charities.
“It’s a massive cent sale with wonderful prizes including fruit and veggie trays and all sorts of things,” she said.
“The lovely Suellen Cusack-Greensill has helped us to organise St Patrick’s Day themed entertainment with children singing Irish songs, and a gentleman will play the bagpipes also.
“It will be a fantastic morning outing and we expect more than 120 people to attend.”
Olga thanked local community members and businesses for the support given through the donation of prizes.
“We have lots of generous locals and businesses who have donated magnificent prizes for the cent sale.
“Along with the cent sale, we will have four lucky Shamrock prizes, a Devonshire morning tea and raffle – it will be a great morning out.”
The Bundaberg Catholic Women’s League is a group of friendly, happy women who meet monthly at St Mary’s Community Centre. For more information email: email@example.com
