Women turn out to cancer fundraiser
ITWAS strictly a no boys allowed zone at Curves on Saturday night, as girls turned out to pamper themselves during the annual Girls’ Night In.
The Curves gym had a colourful market atmosphere, filled with an array of stallholders and food as attendees roamed and socialised.
The sixth annual Girls’ Night In was more than just a great night out, with the event held to raise muchneeded funds towards breast cancer research.
A raffle of more than 70 items on the night helped the cause.
Owner of Curves Gatton Mia Stegeman said the night was a huge success.
“I think that each year someone in Curves is affected somehow by breast cancer and it’s on the rise,” Ms Stegeman said.
“Two members were diagnosed this year and it’s showing support.
“We are a family here and anything we can do to help anyone we’ll do it.
“And we want to find a cure for it and raising money will help do that.”
Ms Stegeman said Curves members were gearing up to enter the Bust a Move for Breast Health fundraiser in Brisbane in March next year, and hoped to raise $1000 for each member in the team.
