The Tin Can Bay Country Club members and guests got together in January to help fellow Australians after their devastating fire season.
The club donated 20 cents from every schooner sold throughout the month, and the golf club, bowls club and darts club joined forces to hold a social day with all proceeds forwarded to help those people in need.
The club also held raffles and a BBQ on the day.
The club raised $7000 at the end of the day, which was a fantastic effort from a small town.
Club Manager, Brad Robb, said: “It is great to see the community get involved and helping others. It makes me proud to work alongside these people.
“Everybody enjoyed the day, even Carl Rackemann (former Australian cricketer) got up and told some stories about cricket which had patrons in stitches.
“A lot of these things can’t be done without the help from sponsors, we would like to thank the following;
“Bull Air Conditioning, Tin Can Bay Ladies Bowls Club, Tin Can Bay Meats, Alan and Anna Docking, Kevin Reibel, Jaz DeVree, Robbie Downman, Seabreeze Kayaks, Gripped on Golf, Greg Tritton, Carl Rackermann, Paul Downman and Jill McDonald.”
