THROW on something bright and outrageous and dance the night away for a good cause when Deb Ruggiero’s Zumba Pink Party returns for a fifth time later this month.
Mrs Ruggiero’s Zumba Pink Party has become an important annual fundraiser, with last year’s event attracting more than 160 people and raising $7000 for Cancer Council WA.
“I’ve been holding a Girls Night In at my home since 2006 but once I became a licensed Zumba instructor I changed it to the Zumba Pink Party at Blue Gum Recreation Centre in 2012,” she said.
“Over the four years, a total of $17,000 has been raised and we are aiming for $8,000 this year.
“The reason I started raising funds for breast cancer research is my husband’s mother contracted the disease when my now 30-year-old daughter was born. My mother-in-law survived 13 years and passed away from secondary cancers in 1999.”
This year’s Zumba Pink Party is slated for Saturday, November 19 and will include dinner, Zumba dancing, a raffle and a variety of games.
