The February 26 community event will be part of the national initiative to raise money to help fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses and increase breast awareness in young Australians.

Ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said it was a mission of the foundation to ensure every family affected by breast cancer had access to a dedicated nurse, no matter where they lived or their financial situation.

The Kingsley Woodvale event will include a Pink Stumps Twenty20 match, inflatables, barbecue, cupcake and best dressed competitions, a pamper room and music.

“This is our annual charity fundraising event and we really pull out all the stops; this year is set to be even better than last year,” club member Mandy Rogers said.

“It is such a fun event, with everyone dressed in pink coming together for such a worthy cause.”

It will run from 5pm at the Kingsley Memorial Clubrooms and attendees are asked to wear pink and bring cash to donate. For more information, call Kerry Hickman on 0450 163 874.
