Bobbin Heads Host a BARBECURE on the Water
The Bobbin Heads Cruising Club took advantage of Sydney's beautiful weather to host a BARBECURE with a difference
What could be better than easing into the weekend with a cruise in the Ku-rig-gai Chase National Park, all whilst raising money for Australia’s brightest early-career cancer researchers?
Last Friday, the Bobbin Heads Cruising Club made the most of a sunny afternoon by turning their regular boat trip into a BARBECURE on the Water.
Around 60 members of the club gathered together across a fleet of ten boats, all of which had been decorated for the occasion with Cure Cancer Australia balloons, flags and bunting. The cruise set off from the club’s headquarters, rafting up to enjoy a traditional barbecue at America Bay.
Club members hopped from boat to boat, tucking into tasty food, catching up with friends and snapping up luxury raffle tickets and auction prizes, with all proceeds going to Cure Cancer Australia.
'To have ten boats and 60 people enjoying a day on the water is a lovely way to spend a Friday!' said Bruce Callaghan, Commodore of Bobbin Head Cruising Club. 'We're still finding members who could not attend on the day are making further donations online.'
In total, Bobbin Head raised over $20,000 through a combination of pre-event registrations, raffle ticket and auction prizes – a truly astonishing amount that will go towards funding Australia’s most innovative emerging cancer researchers.
A big thanks to past commodores and board members of BHCC, who have built the relationship with Cure Cancer Australia over the past 20 years. Particular thanks must go to current commodore Bruce Callaghan, and the 2017/18 elected board and committee members. Their teamwork made it possible for this fantastic fundraising event to to be held out on the water, ensuring it was a true representation of the club.
Thank you to all those involved – we are so incredibly grateful.
