Think pink for Girl’s Night In

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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.
