The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ALAN­NAH GREEN­WOOD

Corowa Cricket Club is set to par­tic­i­pate in the spirit, en­ergy and fun of the in­ter­na­tional Pink Cricket Test by bring­ing the event to town for Pink Stumps Day on Satur­day.

Lo­cal crick­eters will be show­ing off their cricket skills to raise money for the McGrath Foun­da­tion’s Pink Stumps Day when they host Beech­worth Cricket Club at Ball Park.

An ex­cit­ing va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment to ac­com­pany the cricket ac­tion is planned to from 3pm to 6pm.

Corowa Cricket Club Pink Stumps Day com­mit­tee mem­ber Ta­mara Lavis said she was look­ing for­ward to what she hoped would be an­other suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing event.

“We are hop­ing for per­fect weather to greet us again this year and I can’t wait to see the cricket club be­come a sea of pink,” she said.

“Each year we are just amazed and over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of lo­cal busi­nesses who ei­ther make mon­e­tary do­na­tions or do­nate some re­ally sub­stan­tial raf­fle prizes. Each year our event just con­tin­ues to grow big­ger and it’s amaz­ing.

“To­gether we can make a great dif­fer­ence in sup­port­ing the McGrath Foun­da­tion and we re­ally hope to see every­one there.”

Pink Stumps Day pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for teams, busi­nesses, friends, fam­i­lies and any­one else to have fun play­ing cricket while rais­ing money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in com­mu­ni­ties across Aus­tralia and to in­crease breast health aware­ness.

McGrath Foun­da­tion Am­bas­sador and Di­rec­tor Tracy Be­van said Pink Stumps Day played a vi­tal role in achiev­ing the foun­da­tion’s mission of en­sur­ing ev­ery fam­ily ex­pe­ri­enc­ing breast can­cer had ac­cess to a ded­i­cated breast care nurse, no mat­ter where they live or their fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion.

“Our McGrath Breast Care Nurses are at the heart of what we do at the foun­da­tion,” she said.

“They’ve sup­ported over 49,000 fam­i­lies ex­pe­ri­enc­ing breast can­cer.

“We’re en­cour­ag­ing every­one to step up to the crease and make each run count by get­ting be­hind Pink Stumps Day to help make this our big­gest and pink­est yet.”

Tick­ets are $30 per per­son, which in­cludes en­ter­tain­ment, mar­ket stalls, nib­bles and pink bub­bles. Great raf­fle prizes are also to be won. For more in­for­ma­tion on how you can be­come in­volved or pur­chase a ticket to at­tend the event phone Ta­mara Lavis on 0438 224 857.

Pink is the colour to wear on the day, so get the girls to­gether for a great cause and sup­port this year’s Corowa Cricket Club’s Pink Stumps Day.
