Get into the Christmas Carols sporting spirit with the GABA

BASKETBALL: Gladstone Amateur Basketball Association is looking for your help.

The association will host its first-ever Christmas Carols Fundraiser on Friday, December 14.

GABA fundraising co-ordinator Hannah Webb said it the evening will have everything for everyone.

"This will be an awesome community event that will include local talented singers, school choirs, market stalls, games, kids' inflatables and much more," she said.

Funds raised from the Carols event will go directly toward the association's much-needed upgrades to the electronic scoring system used in QBL and Gladstone senior competitions.

Webb said brand new referee shirts and whistles will also be purchased with the funds.

Webb encourages Gladstone businesses to come on board.

"We are looking for generous donations to make our night a success and we would really appreciate anything your business can offer to reach our goals," she said.

Donations can include gift vouchers, prizes, tax deductible money donations, volunteer work and naming right sponsors.

Any donations will receive their name printed in the programs and mentioned by the MC's on the night and on all advertising via websites and Facebook.

Contact Webb on 0406651418 for more details on how you can help.
