Horsham Sports and Community Club manager Glenn Carroll said other grants ranged from $2500 to $125.

Mr Carroll said Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty was a guest speaker at the event.
He said guests enjoyed afternoon tea before the awards presentations.
Mr Carroll said the event changed to a Sunday afternoon instead of a weeknight due to renovations at the club.
He said the grants nights had given away similar amounts of money for the past few years.
He said it was a highlight of the club.
“It’s there to benefit its people and the community,” he said.
