SOUTHERN Cross Bowls Club was awash with red on Saturday as Southern Downs Realty hosted its Day for Daniel bowls fundraiser.

The national event aims to bring awareness to child safety and raise funds for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.

The team at Southern Downs Realty raised just more than $2600 for the cause.

Event co-ordinator Tiffany Cruice said the event had a great turn out.

"We started bowling at 1.30 with more than 60 bowlers playing through the afternoon," Mrs Cruice said.

"A lot of businesses have donated prizes for the raffles, Domino's donated pizzas for the afternoon and Southern Cross Bowls Club were fundraising for the cause as well with a shave."

Among the participants were Kevin King, Keith Johnson, Desmond Horne, Neville Mulcahy and Murray Collins, who raised $1000 between them to shave their beards.

"We raised a lot more than we had aimed for," she said.

"We were just overwhelmed with the support and generosity of the community."
