GRAB a glass of bubbly and get into the latest trends this Spring at the Bongaree Bowls Club Fashion Show.

Bongaree bowls ladies' president Merna Hogg said the well-enjoyed entertainer, Elvis Parsley will be coming to perform at the fashion show and is ready to get the crowd rocking.

"Elvis will be coming along and he always gets everybody moving and he will perform for as long as the girls want to rock and roll,” she said.

"The fashion parade is an important event for the upkeep of our community group.

"We work hard to keep the bowls club going and we have a high fee to pay in rent and to keep the greenkeeper and our club going.

"It is important we have fundraising events like this to keep our club financially afloat.

"Socially we get a lot of people going to our parade too so it becomes kind of a social outing.”

The Bongaree Bowls Club fashion show is in its third year and has garments supplied by Anna's Fashion Boutique on Kangaroo Avenue.

Head along for an afternoon of fashion, fun and entertainment at the Bongaree Bowls Club (54 Toorbul St, Bongaree) on September 16 from 1.30pm.

Tickets cost $22 per hour if purchased prior to the event or $25 per hour on the day and attendees will be treated to a drink of their choice and an array of homemade nibbles on arrival.

For more information phone the club on 3408 0005 or phone Merna Hogg on 3408 8543/ 0407876905.
