Girls’ night in
CALLING all ladies - it is time to bring out your favourite pair of undies and decorate them for the third annual Girls Night In to raise awareness and money for research into women’s cancers.
Competition will be fifi erce, with host Raelene McDonald (pictured) announcing the best decorated undies competition without a theme, so people can be as creative as they want and “use their imagination”.
After raising over $9000 for the Cancer Council Queensland campaign in the last two years, Ms McDonald has been named a VIP for being one of the top 100 Girls Night In hosts and is hoping to raise around $5000 at this year’s party.
“It’s a lot of fun and it’s a way of getting the important message across in a fun light- hearted way by getting the girls together and continuing the fifi ght against cancer and promoting awareness and early detection,” she said.
“There’s going to be a lady from the breast screening unit giving a talk about the importance of keeping regular checks on yourself and early detection and if you do fifi nd something, who are the appropriate people to get it checked.”
The aim of the Girls Night In is to get all the girls together for a fun night in and donate money they would usually spend on a night out.
Money raised from the Girls Night In will go towards breast and gynaecological cancer research, education programs and support services for women and carers.
And Ms McDonald promises an evening of fun with this year’s Song of Carnivale winner Kevin Carrington performing, dance performances from Bodies in Motion, DJ’s, rafflffles and gift bags full of treats from local businesses.
“Bodies in Motion are going to do a couple of performances and also give the girls a little bit of a dance lesson to get them up and show them a few moves and we also got our competition and this year it’s the best decorate undies,” she said.
“The local police youth club will DJ for us so the girls can dance the night away and a lot of people can stick with the pink theme but there is no dress theme, we just want the girls to be comfortable and come along and have a good night.”
The Girls Night In will be held at the Mossman Memorial Bowl’s Club hall on Saturday night. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start, tickets cost $20 each and with limited numbers make sure you grab your tickets early from the club.
