IGA store raises cash

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

SHOW your true colours and wear pink for a wor­thy cause. IGA Monto is.

They have ded­i­cated the month of Oc­to­ber to the Chicks in Pink breast can­cer cause.

Last week em­ploy­ees Sharon Han­ley and Natalie Poin­ton were sta­tioned out­side the store rais­ing funds for the cam­paign.

Funds were raised through a sausage siz­zle, sales of items in­clud­ing pink swim­ming gog­gles as well as tick­ets in the IGA pink ham­per raf­fle.

Ms Poin­ton said shop­pers could also add an ex­tra $1 to their shop­ping bill which would be do­nated.

In three days Ms Poin­ton raised al­most $1500, but said the to­tal store tally was still un­known.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the store said IGA was “just happy to sup­port a char­ity”.
