Bowlers will join golfers this year in an Ararat Hospital Charity Golf and Bowls Day at Chalambar Golf Club on October 15.
And golfers again have an opportunity to win a car if they achieve an elusive hole-in-one during the event.
As well as a three-person ambrose event, an open triples bowls competition has joined the charity fundraiser to increase participation.
ACE Radio and Kings Cars have again come on board as major sponsors of the annual event, joined by new major sponsor Brian Thomas Electrical, with many other businesses offering sponsorship and raffle prizes.
This year’s event is raising money for an AccuVein Vein Finder for East Grampians Health Service.
Medical staff members use this equipment to locate veins on patients by displaying a map of the vasculature on the surface of the skin.
Staff would mainly use it in an urgent care centre or oncology department.
Nurse Unit manager Lorine Paterson said this piece of equipment was vital for clinical staff.
“It allows clinicians to easily find veins on patients, which can sometimes be difficult, particularly in cancer patients and the elderly,” she said.
Michael Smith from Kings Cars encouraged golfers from across the region to enter a team and help raise money for East Grampians Health Service.
“We are pleased to again partner with the health service as a major sponsor of the Ararat Hospital charity golf day,” he said.
“It is important for us as a business to show our support for organisations such as East Grampians Health Service.
“We’d also love to see the car won – a hole-in-one might be elusive, but it’s not impossible.”
Brian Thomas from Brian Thomas Electrical also encouraged the region’s bowlers to enter a team in the new bowls event.
“As a business we are thrilled to come on board as a major sponsor of the event,” he said.
“East Grampians Health Service is a vital part of the community and we are pleased to show our support.”
Entry for the three-person ambrose is $90 a team and for the three-person open triples bowls event it is $45 a team.
Entry includes a barbecue lunch, afternoon tea and a raffle ticket. Entry forms are available from Chalambar Golf Club and entries close on October 9.
The golf will hit off with a shotgun start at 11.30am, with registration from 11am, while the bowls will start at noon, with registration from 11.15am.
