Think pink for Girl’s Night In
PROSERPINE Youth Space coordinator Rachel Geddes and assistant co-ordinator Alannah Schneider are encouraging Whitsunday women and girls to “think pink” and join the fight against cancer at a special Girl’s Night In.
This three-hour-long event from 5-8pm on Friday, October 18, is open to anyone female aged 12 and up and will be held at Youth Space on Proserpine’s Main Street.
Ms Geddes said the event was to support all those affected by breast and gynaecological cancer “or anyone touched by cancer basically, whether personally, or through family and friends.”
“Parents, aunties, sisters, friends – anyone is welcome as long as you’re 12 or over and female,” she said.
Ms Schneider said plenty of “girlie” entertainment had been planned, with Whitsunday Hair Studios volunteering their time, products and staff to be there performing manicures, pedicures and simple hairstyles such as braids.
“Woolworths have donated some cheese platters and IGA have donated various grocery items – our plan is to have some food-related games as an ice-breaker to get everyone laughing,” she said.
The Leading Edge video store has also donated a new-release chick flick to be shown on the night and prizes for games, from Colour me Crazy, will be up for grabs.
Ms Geddes said the event was also a good opportunity for people to come into Youth Space and familiarise themselves with the service and what it offers.
