Cowboys Support Bushfire Appeal
The Cowboys Leagues Club will be supporting communities affected by the nation’s devastating bushfires, donating $1 from every main meal sold in January.
General Manager of the Club, Clint Williams, said that donations will be made to The Salvation Army Disaster Appeal.
“I think anyone who experienced the floods in North Queensland last year will understand the widespread impact that a natural disaster has across the community. We are feeling deeply for all of our southern friends who are going through their own absolutely devastating crisis,” Mr Williams said.
Club Chairman, Daryl Holmes, was also very keen for the Club to get behind such a worthy cause.
“Whilst North Queensland and the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys will always be our focus and our passion, at the end of the day we are all Australians, and it is the North Queensland way to help out those in need, wherever they may be. We owe a great debt of gratitude to those who have so generously supported us in our time of need, and we are thankful yet saddened that we have the opportunity to repay a little of their kindness,” he said.
In addition to donating $1 to the Appeal from every main meal sold at dining outlet Match Restaurant & Grill during January, the Club will host a weekly gold coin donation sausage sizzle on Saturdays and have donation tins placed around the Club for members to donate throughout the month.
“By supporting The Salvation Army Disaster Appeal, members will be sending crucial support to affected communities and assisting with their recovery long term.”
“The Salvation Army’s overall fundraising goal for the Appeal is $3 million, and I sincerely hope we can play our part in helping to reach this target. I would also like to thank our members in advance for their generosity – I already know that they will do all they can to support this worthy cause,” Mr Williams said.
