Broady pitches in for pink event

"THINK Pink Broady" was the catchcry for the town of Broadwater at their breast cancer fundraiser two weeks ago.

And they did, with a high percentage of the town turning up to the Broadwater Bowling Club in all shades of pink.

As an extension to the Girls' Night In fundraiser, Sheree Hyslop, of Broadwater, had organised the night, advising everyone to dress "funky, spunky, sassy, classy, trashy, flashy, flirty, sexy, fun ... as long as it's pink".

"The reason I did it as a couple's event this year was because it's put out there as Girls' Night In by the Cancer Council, but I was destined to prove that couples do have more fun," she said.

From the very youngest to the more mature, everyone had some form of pink to wear, including pyjamas, tiaras, wigs, ribbons, boas and plenty of pink hairspray.

There was also a mountain of prizes to be won, including a two-night stay at the Logger's Rest in Stanthorpe.

"The support for the cause that came from all the small businesses was just amazing," Ms Hyslop said.

"There were wine baskets, perfume packs, $200 credit for electrical work from Mick Sawtell Electrical and plenty of vouchers."

The aim for the night was to raise $1000 and Ms Hyslop confirmed this amount was achieved.

"We made our $1000-plus," she said. "It's also the biggest night the club had in some time."

Broadwater Bowling Club offered their premises without cost for the event.
