Big Balls Out for a good cause
SYDNEY: The Big Balls Out gay bowling fundraiser will be back early next year after the event was successfully held for the first time last week.
Held at Strike Bowling Bar at the Entertainment Quarter in Sydney’s east, about150 people took to the lanes on Wednesday night (November 21) for some casual bowling fun as well as the opportunity to have some “cheeky fun” while raising money for the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby (GLRL).
Organiser Jason Potvin, from Cheeky Play Events, told SX the night hosted by Verushka Darling was likely to become a common mid-week fixture in months to come.
“Something different happened this past humpday,” he said.
“150 ticket holders rocked up and together, with the ever talented Verushka Darling hosting, raised over $350 through onsite donations and our half-time model show.
“Epic thanks to our three beautiful models and our guests who came from all microcosms of the gay community to mingle and bowl for the love of cheeky fun.”
GLRL senior policy officer Jed Horner paid tribute to the organisers for putting on such a fun networking and fundraising event and told SX he was already looking forward to the next event.
“Wednesday’s Big Balls Out was loads of fun and a significant opportunity for the GLRL to raise its profile and some funding,” he said.
“It was a great opportunity for everyone to let their hair down, take a break from a busy working week and play for a good cause. We’re confident that Big Balls Out will go from strength to strength as a regular event.”
