Go­ing pink for a cause

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

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.
