Going pink for a cause
IT WAS a day of laughter and joy as 600 women sipped on pink margaritas at an unforgettable fiesta in the tiny town of Weengallon.
The annual breast cancer fundraiser, at the blink-and-miss-it town between Goondiwindi and St George, raised more than $30,000 to support local breast care nurses and provide free accommodation for country cancer patients.
Weengallon Fiesta Pink Ladies Day president, Emma Montgomery said the day was a roaring success, made possible by the support of guests and major sponsors.
This year guests were enthralled by guest speaker, Robyn Moore, a breast cancer survivor who is well-known for her voice-over work on How Green Was My Cactus.
