PINK LADIES TAKE OVER PARLIAMENT HOUSE

State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley and her team of pink ladies
turned the gardens of Parliament House pink yesterday.

Ms Graley was joined by the Hon Maxine Morand, Chief Executive Officer, Breast Cancer Network Australia and Members of Parliament to plant a Mini-Field of Women to pay tribute to all those affected by breast cancer in our community.

Ms Graley said that she was thrilled by the support shown from her colleagues of
all political persuasions, including the Premier and the Leader of the Opposition for such a fantastic cause.

“To see so many of my colleagues out and proud in pink to support Breast Cancer Network Australia was truly a sight to behold,”

“The planting was accompanied by the beautiful music of a string quartet featuring Joanna An, Roland Chieng, George Lim and Kathy Nguyen from Nossal High School,”

“Together we were able to raise almost $1000 and do our bit to further raise awareness of
the impact breast cancer has on families in our community.”

Ms Graley said that this event would not have been possible without the outstanding efforts of her extraordinary team of pink ladies.

“I must make special mention of Nichole Hayes, Kym Frost, Caitlyn Slade, Therese
Howell, Tracey Ryan, Melinda Anderson and Poly Van Kroning, my amazing pink team,”

“Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month these wonderful women, all of whom live in my electorate have gone above and beyond to do what they can to support those affected by breast cancer,”

“Thank you ladies and to everyone who came out today to turn Parliament House pink for
a day.”
