Fun in fundraiser
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.
