What a night!
Well! The crazy Saturday weather - last bit of rain finished 10 minutes before start time! - did not deter the happy faces and curious personalities. Some dressed to the theme, finding checkered shirts and even borrowing their grandpa's akubra.
Every one of the women who came though had an attitude that makes hosting Girls' Night In worth it. It was lovely to see the smiles, to see you meet one another, and to justbe so interested in everything.
On the night we raised a whopping $1885 in cash! Not to mention everyone who donated online, whether you got to join us or not.
Thank you to all for coming, for donating both your money and time! Thank you to those who helped on the night. Biggest shout out to my mother Elvira, who is the heart and soul of the night. She is a hero. I am not joking when I say that she is already planning for next year.
Our gratitude extends to all who supported in whatever way!
Bring on next year, yee-haw!
I’m hosting a Girls’ Night In to help all Victorian women affected by cancer
Every year, 15,700 Victorian women are diagnosed cancer, and 6,000 of those will be breast or gynaecological cancers.
Thanks in part to generous Victorians, the good news is that the rate of women dying from cancer is declining. Throughout the last decade, the rate has been consistently decreasing by 1.5% per year. This is thanks to earlier detection of cancers through screening, reductions in tobacco use, and improvements in treatment.
We are passionate about saving even more lives, so we are helping Cancer Council Victoria by hosting a Girls’ Night In. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up with the girls and celebrate our friendship while raising vital funds.
By supporting us, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to all Victorian women affected by cancer.
Thank you to my supporters!
