Guys get their gear off for good cause

JIMMY DUFOUR would never have imagined he would be getting his kit off for breast cancer.

But that's just what the 27-year-old Canadian law student will be doing this Saturday night at the Goonellabah Tavern in front of an expected crowd of around 150 women.

Mr Dufour, one of the tavern's local lads who have volunteered to model underwear from the local Spoon More label, said he was not feeling nervous.

“But I'll probably have a few Canadian Clubs before I go on,” he said.

Mr Dufour said members of his family had been affected by cancer.

“It's a good cause and it will be fun, so I thought, why not?” Mr Dufour said.

Functions manager Kim Berger said the tavern wanted to support breast cancer research because it was a disease that touched so many lives.

“It's a popular charity and women's health is important,” Ms Berger said.

Ms Berger said all the money raised would go to the Cancer Council and be spent on breast cancer research.

“Last year we raised $2000,” Ms Berger said.

“I think we can do better than that this year.”

Tickets to the Girls Night In are $10 and include champagne and finger food.

There also will be fashion, jewellery, cocktails and makeovers.

Some of the jewellery and fashions have been designed by women who have had breast cancer.

The night is for women of all ages, with mothers, daughters and grandmothers being encouraged to attend.

Breast cancer affects one-in-eight women.

Early detection increases the chances of survival.
