An afternoon of bowls

As we say goodbye to winter and welcome spring, Gauteng Women In Insurance (GWII) rallied up the ladies for a fun filled afternoon of bowls, sponsored by Innosys, at the Killarney Country Club on 24 August.

What a fun day!

Setting the scene for the day, with a tropical theme, the ladies were treated to refreshing welcome drinks and a scrumptious light lunch, followed by a quick lesson in bowls where Michelé Schliesser, a long time insurance fundi, showed the ladies the ins and outs of the sport.

Off to the greens, in their teams, ladies sporting their takkies and colourful sporty outfits began what was… a day to remember!

Some played better than others, but in essence, the day was labelled by most as “fun”, “great” and “superbly outrageous”.

Awarded efforts

After breaking a sweat, from the greens the ladies headed to the patio for some canapés and yummy desserts. The day ended off with a prize giving session. Prizes were given for the winning bowls team and the team with the best spirit. The winning teams received Woolworths vouchers, sponsored by Innosys.

Thank you

GWII would like to thank main sponsor, Innosys, as this event would not have been possible without them. GWII would also like to thank all the members who took part in this fun day…it was a lovely day indeed!

Ladies were asked to bring R50 entrance fees which will be donated to the nominated charity, Look Good, Feel Better – a non-profit organisation that helps women with cancer.

We would like to thank each one of you for your donation and to Insure Group, who donated an additional R3500.
