This is our second year in fundraising for the McGrath Foundation in support of Breast Cancer, however this year we are planning to fundraise over the entire weekend and hopefully raise more money for the cause. Last year we raised an incredible $2,270.65 and we hope to raise even more this year.
Our 2016 event sees more teams participating by wearing the McGrath Foundation socks during their games, in support of breast cancer awareness and fundraising for the McGrath Foundation.
During the entire weekend we will be:
- decorating the place in pink and encourage everyone to dress up in pink for the occasion!
- running a raffle for some great prizes
- selling cupcakes and baked treats in the Tigers Lair Canteen & Coffee Corner
- have a limited amount of McGrath Foundation merchandise including socks that can be purchased
More about the cause:
Our donations will help the McGrath Foundation towards its tenth anniversary goal of increasing the number of McGrath Breast Care Nurses across Australia to 110 to support 10,000 families experiencing breast cancer. To date, the McGrath Foundation has funded 102 nurses who have supported 33,000 families through the challenges of breast cancer.
Holding our first Pull On Your Socks Weekend Fundraiser event this year will help support the McGrath Foundation in helping support even more families!!
