Fun in fundraiser

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

GIRLS who love to glam-up have a great op­por­tu­nity to “look pretty in pink” for a good cause.

As part of the Girls Night In, a char­ity night will be held at the Moss­man Bowls Club this Satur­day to raise money for re­search to help fight breast can­cer and ovar­ian can­cer.

Or­gan­iser Rae­lene Mc­Don­ald said the Queens­land Can­cer Coun­cil fundraiser prom­ises to be a lot of fun.

“These are very se­ri­ous is­sues fac­ing women but if we can have some fun and raise money while we’re do­ing it and sup­port­ing each other, that is a good thing,” Ms Mc­Don­ald said.

“And with the re­cent open­ing of the Mary­lyn Mayo Lodge in Cairns, a won­der­ful fa­cil­ity for pa­tients and car­ers to come and stay for free, it takes a lot of stress off peo­ple be­cause be­fore it opened they of­ten had to travel to Townsville and be away from fam­ily.

“And when you’re go­ing through some­thing like this, you need all the sup­port you can get.”

As part of the fun on the night, there will a shoe-dec­o­rat­ing con­test along with three ap­pren­tice hair­dressers who will be show­ing off their creative tal­ents as they toss and tease the hair of three will­ing mod­els. There will be an Un­derCoverWear fash­ion pa­rade and the Port Dou­glas Per­form­ing Arts Academy will be putting on a show.

The Girls Night In will be at the Moss­man Bowls Club this Satur­day, doors open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Tick­ets are $20 and are avail­able from Ives Mens­land in Moss­man and Sa­lon Z in Port Dou­glas, but be quick as numbers are lim­ited.
