Break­fast can­celled

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

The De­niliquin Sorop­ti­mist’s 11th an­nual fundrais­ing break­fast to­mor­row morn­ing has been can­celled due to a ‘‘lack of num­bers’’.

Pres­i­dent Pam Ward said it ap­peared the event has ‘‘run its course’’.

‘‘We’ve had a good run (with the break­fast) over the past 10 years. When we first started we were the only one with a char­ity fundraiser for breast can­cer in town but now there are many.

‘‘We are look­ing into pos­si­bly do­ing some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent next year.

‘‘I think we’ve raise about $15,000 all up over time for the McGrath Foun­da­tion, and we apol­o­gise to De­niliquin CanAs­sist as our pro­ceeds were go­ing to help lo­cal suf­fer­ers this year.’’

Pre-pur­chased break­fast tick­ets can be re­funded at the Deni RSL Club re­cep­tion.
