‘Pink Party’ is back

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

MAGNUMS Ho­tel is well known as one of the big­gest party spots in Air­lie Beach and on Fri­day they will be us­ing this fact to raise thou­sands of dol­lars for breast can­cer re­search.

Af­ter rais­ing more than $15,000 last year, staff and man­age­ment have the am­bi­tious goal of reach­ing $30,000 this year for the PA Re­search Foun­da­tion.

Venue man­ager Tony Box­ell said Magnums was one of the big­gest fundrais­ers in the state.

“Magnums an­nu­ally fundraises for this cause and as a group, ev­ery year we raise hun­dreds of thou­sands to help find a cure for breast can­cer,” he said.

“Magnums is of­ten the leader in amounts raised out of 100+ venue's in Queens­land.

“This year we are aim­ing to raise 30k. We are well on our way to that tar­get thanks to pa­trons’ sup­port.”

Mr Box­ell said can­cer was a dis­ease that af­fected ev­ery­one at some stage in their lives.

“We want to help put an end to it,” he said.

“Ev­ery lit­tle bit of funds raised helps to­wards this.”

The Magnums an­nual Pink Party fundraiser en­ter­tain­ment starts from 3pm.

There will be a live auc­tion on the board­walk from 10pm.

“There will be heaps of great items up for grabs worth thou­sands kindly do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses,” Mr Box­ell said.

“There will also be raf­fles and of course live en­ter­tain­ment. Get your pink on and come and sup­port for a good cause. We hope to see you there!”

In­cluded in the auc­tion will be a 12-month pass to all tick­eted events at Magnums, tick- ets to the Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic, a Cruise Whit­sun­days Camira trip for two and a tour with Whit­sun­day Croc­o­dile Sa­fari.

The Pink Party will also have a drinks spe­cial with $2 from ev­ery Reko­rderlig drink sold go­ing to char­ity.

The win­ner of the "name our duck com­pe­ti­tion" will also be an­nounced on the night.

Mu­sic will be pro­vided by The Fox and Sun Salute, the lat­ter of whom has just been an­nounced as sup­port to in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed reg­gae band Katchafire.
