Tablelands Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

Pink frocks and tea cups are enouraged at the an­nual Prink Rib­bon Graden Party this week­end.

The Ma­reeba Li­on­ess Club mem­bers Janet Mills, San­dra Kelly OAM, Cather­ine Gor­dois, Kathy Garozzo and Pauline McKin­ley have been busy pre­par­ing sand­wiches and treats for the af­ter­noon.

Fash­ion pa­rades, sand­wiches, tea and sweets will be dished up at the an­nual Pink Rib­bion Gar­den Party.

The event will be held at the Ma­reeba Race­course on Satur­day Au­gust 19.

Ma­reeba Li­on­ess Club pres­i­dent Kathy Garozzo said they usu­ally raise about $10,000 for Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land and they hope this year is no dif­fer­ent.

“We en­cour­age people to wear pink and bring their own tea cup on the day,” she said.

“There will still be cups avail­able on the day for those who don’t wish to bring their own.”

She said Ather­ton Hot­shots Big Band will be pro­vid­ing live en­ter­tain­ment through­out the af­ter­noon and there will be plenty of cake, plant and pro­duce stalls.

Mrs Garozzo said there will be raf­fles and $100 boards on the day.

“Every­thing will be beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated and all funds raised will go to Can­cer Coun­cil and be­fit people lo­cally,” she said.

Gates will open at 1 pm with af­ter­noon tea be­ing poured about 2:30 pm.

Tick­ets are $20 per per­son and are avail­able at Rock­mans Ma­reeba or at the gate on the day.
