Pink rib­bons to raise aware­ness

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THIS year’s Proser­pine Li­brary fundraiser for Pink Rib­bon Day took on a spe­cial im­por­tance af­ter the re­cent di­ag­no­sis of one staff mem­ber with breast can­cer.

The li­brary’s fourth an­nual Pink Rib­bon Day bar­be­cue was held out­side the li­brary on Mon­day and raised money for all women’s can­cer.

Nadine Don­adelli was re­cently di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer and the li­brary’s team leader Robyn Bat­man said it made their fundrais­ing ef­forts more spe­cial.

“It’s re­ally brought home the is­sue for us this year know­ing that our friend and co-worker had been re­cently di­ag­nosed and it re­ally is such a wor­thy cause. We had lots of peo­ple come by and buy a sausage sand­wich or just do­nate some money to the cause,” she said.

“We raised $230 through­out the day and want to thank ev­ery­one who sup­ported us.”
