Hope Ambassadors call for community to unite in pink
Locals are gearing up for an afternoon of fashion, food, friendship, and all things pink, in a show of support for all women affected by cancer!
Cancer Council Hope Ambassadors Roslyn Novakovic and Patricia Hanmer, will host a Breast Cancer and Women's Cancers Afternoon High Tea and Fashion Parade on Saturday, October 14, from 2pm, at Forest Lake Uniting Church Hall in Ellen Grove (528 Waterford Rd, Ellen Grove).
Mrs Novakovic extended an invite to the community to attend the annual event for a fun-filled afternoon, in support of Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon campaign.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased before Saturday, October 14, by calling Roslyn Novakovic on 0415 826 539 or Patricia Hanmer on 0412 427 294.
"This year the event will feature lucky door prizes, raffles, auctions, guest speakers and survivor stories," Mrs Novakovic said.
"The local community is always very supportive and the hall, which Reverend Russell has generously let us have for free, will provide a wonderful venue.
"There will be both women's and men's fashion in the parade, so we are encouraging as many people as possible to come and support cause."
The organisers are good friends and have been Cancer Council Hope Ambassador's since 2012, dedicating their time and efforts to help others affected by cancer.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan commended Roslyn and Patricia on their dedication to fundraising, saying all those who unite in pink make a big difference in the fight against women's cancers.
"One in six Queensland women will be diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancers in their lifetime," Ms McMillan
"By supporting the efforts of Pink Ribbon fundraisers you can help change the future for thousands of Queensland women.
"Funds raised at events like these enable us to conduct lifesaving cancer research, offer vital support to those affected, and educate people on how to reduce their cancer risk."
