A call to action was desperate for the farmer's of Australia trying to combat the drought. Fingal Bay Sports Centre and Nelson Bay Golf Club pulled off an amazing feet in organising a regional event in just 4 weeks raising $45,000 towards this initiative. ALL sporting clubs in the area ranging from golfing (NBGC, Pacific Dunes, Horizons), bowling (Nelson Bay, Soldiers Point) who had facilities put on a their own individual event whilst sporting clubs such as the Nelson Bay Gropers, hockey, Marlins, tennis club, junior rugby league, netball raised money through donations and raffles. The business community of Nelson Bay were also encouraged to donate directly to the fund raising account held at Nelson Bay NAB. To organise an event and have the community pull together in such a short amount of time was simply astonishing!
