THE Hastings will be a sea of pink on Friday as a part of a national campaign to raise awareness about breast cancer.
To mark the event, Port Macquarie’s Colleen Griffiths will host a Pink Morning Tea and a Girls Night In.
“Cancer affects everyone, family and close friends and holding these two events is a fun way to not only raise money but the Girls Night In presents an opportunity to bring awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers,” Colleen said.
“Rather than focusing on the statistics which are really scary, it provides a great opportunity for discussion and support in a friendly environment.”
The Pink Morning Tea will be held at APIA, Shop 3 & 4, The Galleria Building, 128 William Street, Port Macquarie on Friday, October 21 between 10am and 12 noon.
On Saturday, October 22 Colleen will be host an exciting Girls Night In at 45 Cattle Brook Road, Port Macquarie and requests everyone come dressed in pink.
There will be plenty of prizes on offer donated by Hastings businesses for the best pink outfit.
Ticketsare $25 and can be purchased by ringing Colleen on 0438 911 379 or emailing Colleen_griffiths@apia.com.au.
The evening will rock with live entertainment from well-known local singer and songwriter Pam Hata from 7pm.
In the Northern NSW region alone, it is predicted that this year 350 people will be diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer.
In 2016, Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign aims to raise $7.2 million nationally and over $3.1 million in NSW alone.
