Girls night in at Dunoon to raise funds for Cancer Council
THINK pink at Dunoon Hall on October 11 for a Cancer Council event organised by local resident Kristy Bloomfield to help beat breast and gynaecological cancer.
"It's branded as 'Girls Night In' but men are welcome to attend," said Kristy.
"Tickets are $40 for a three-course meal (table service) accompanied by some local musicians plus the screening of the film 'Julie & Julia'."
Kristy's event, now in its fourth year, and second year running in collaboration with the Dunoon Film Society, last year raised more than $1500.
Each year more than 400 people in Northern NSW put their hands up to volunteer on the official merchandise selling day, host a Girls' Night In or a Pink Ribbon fund raiser.
"In Northern NSW alone, it's predicted that, by 2016, 350 people will be diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer in a single year, with 73 deaths expected," Cancer Council spokesperson Abby Wallace said
