SunSafe Lawn Bowls @ Bowling Green NYC

June 8 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for our Historic #SlipSlopSlap Lawn Bowls Competition at Bowling Green in Downtown NYC.

This summer The Australian Community is raising awareness of Melanoma, and a Sun Safe game of Lawn Bowls at the most historic public park in the U.S. is the perfect location to demonstrate Sun Safe outdoor activities.

For the past five years, The Australian Community has been raising awareness of Melanoma amongst New Yorkers through its #SlipSlopSlap campaign.

Although Bowling Green was the center of Lawn Bowls in NYC under the British, ever since George Washington marched down Broadway in 1783 and lowered the Union Jack, its been challenging to get teams together for a few friendly Ends!

The good news is that we have assembled a group of Sun Safe Australians to compete in the Inaugural #SlipSlopSlap Lawn Bowls competition to be held on June 8, 2019 at Bowling Green!

 

 

Hydration is important so Bundaberg has donated a few cases of their famous Ginger Beer for players and spectators to enjoy!

If you are free on the afternoon of Saturday June 8 and would like to be part of history, the first End is at Noon.

#SlipSlopSlap #KoalaGiving

More than 1,000 New Yorkers in NYC and Long Island die of Melanoma each year.

 

According to the CDC, there were a total of 8,882 annual new cases of Melanoma diagnosed in NYC and Long Island, of whom, 1,015 died.
