Breast cancer: Delishously Pink fundraiser
Luv 2 Cater, together with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, recently held the inaugural Delishously Pink girls afternoon and dinner to raise funds for breast cancer research at Casey Fields. I was invited to speak on my personal experiences with breast cancer, along with Jane Scobie from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Diana Spano, a breast cancer survivor, and Melissa Nicholl, whose mother, Anne Elisabeth, passed away from breast cancer last November.
The event included a fashion show, silent auction, delicious food, 29 party planners with lots of goodies to sell and a popular and delightful pink throne. I make special mention of the pink throne, which was provided by Viking Rentals, which donates $5 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation for every pink toilet it hires out.
It was a lot of fun dressing up and having my photo taken for such a great cause.
Over 110 people took part in the event and $1500 was raised for vital research into breast cancer. Lots of people came up at the end of the night asking to be booked in for next year’s event. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at Luv 2 Cater and all those involved in the night. This team includes the indefatigable and generous Kym Frost, Lisa Neindorf, Michelle Coster, Debbie Slade, Chris Cortese, Alison Kramer, Diane Norman, Caitlyn Slade and Dana Reedman. Amy Frost, Benjamin Frost and Ian Frost all deserve special thanks for the support they gave their mum, Kym.
The major sponsors of the event included Liquid Glass and Glazing, Rodansar Fabrication, Strong Australia, Botanic Homes, Jax Automotive Detailing and Members Equity Bank.
The girls from the Casey Scorpions looked great in their hot pink footy guernseys, sponsored by Watsons. It was a deliciously pink success.
