Stirling Times - - Front Page - Do­nate at bit.ly/2DQOlQZ.

A NORTH Beach fam­ily is hop­ing a com­mu­nity cricket match will go a long way to help­ing women with breast can­cer.

The Gmeiner fam­ily has or­gan­ised a Pink Stumps Day at Charles Ri­ley Re­serve on Feb­ru­ary 10 from 1.30pm to raise money for the McGrath Foun­da­tion, which funds breast care nurses across Aus­tralia.

Tea­gan Gmeiner said her grand­mother died of can­cer 25 years ago and be­lieved host­ing the event would ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity and peo­ple with breast can­cer.

They will hold a Twenty20 cricket match at the oval, as well as a raf­fle, auc­tion and sausage siz­zle.

“We are hop­ing it will be a lot of fun and have a bit of hu­mour,” she said. “It’s for a good cause; I think that can­cer af­fects ev­ery­one.”

Perth Scorchers Women’s Big Bash League player Mathilda Carmichael has do­nated signed gear for auc­tion.

Peo­ple are asked to con­trib­ute a note do­na­tion if they want to be part of the match.

Spec­ta­tors can watch for a gold coin do­na­tion.
