Bogan Bingo Fundraiser 2023
Bogan Bingo returns to Medowie Social for a night of fundraising and bogan-tastic fun.
Join us this 19th of August, Saturday at 6:00pm as we get together for a fun packed night out to raise funds for a Lake Macquarie youngster – Max Hayes-Antcliff.
Tickets are now available through this link!
Max has been selected to represent Australia at the Oceanic Freestyle Wrestling Championships in August this year. Max is still finishing Year 12 at Lambton High school and dedicates his whole life to grappling. At just 17 years of age, he wants to become the first Australian to win a Gold medal at the Olympics for the sport, and the Oceanic Championships is the next step to him achieving this goal. Meeting the financial requirements of being selected to compete is a struggle in itself, we want Max to be able to concentrate on his training and preparation and leave the funding to us. In these difficult financial times, we’re looking to our loyal community, friends, family and all the amazing people we know to get behind Max and his family and help get this inspirational and motivated young man to the Championships and, hopefully, then the Olympics.
All funds raised will go directly to Max and towards the fees associated with selection and competing in the championships – competition entry fees, flights, training camps, accommodation and any other incidental expenses, as Wrestling Australia unfortunately has no funding available to assist Max and his family to overcome the financial burden that unfortunately comes with national team selection. Young men like Max are paving the way for the future generations to come in Australian Wrestling and we can’t wait to see him wearing the Green & Gold on the competition floor.
