More than 700 women will gather to pay homage to the annual breast cancer fundraising event. The day began in 2000 when 40 women gathered in a tin shed to raise money to buy cleaning products. Now in its 20th year, Weengallon Pink Ladies Day will serve up a luscious day of shopping, lunch and laughter in one of the largest marquees in the southern hemisphere.
Coordinator Emma Montgomery says that more tables and supporting infrastructure has been added to accommodate the growing success of the glamorous bush charity event. “Every year Weengallon Pink Ladies Day nourishes the soul by bringing beautiful, strong women together and creating a day of energy, joy and sparkle that celebrates all that is good in life,” Mrs Montgomery said. “We are loving our Champagne theme this year which provides the perfect opportunity for friends to pop some bubbly and toast Weengallon’s amazing milestone,” she said.
This year’s Weengallon Pink Ladies Day will also challenge the public focus on early breast cancer and fighting and winning the battle by asking; What if you knew you couldn’t win? The charity event has also seen the employment of Breast Cancer Nurses in St George and Goondiwindi, and the provision of free accommodation for cancer patients through the Olive McMahon Lodge.
To help celebrate the event’s two-decade run, Christina Duddy from The Diamond Hunter has donated an exquisite gem. The gem,a $5000 pink morganite and diamond dress ring will be a part the special Premium Raffle prize. However, only 250 tickets will be sold in the Diamond Hunter Premium Raffle and those $25 tickets will only be available at Christina Duddy’s store at Weengallon on the day. With more than 40 luxury stores expected to be at this years fundraiser, the event promises nothing but diamonds, pearls and raising much needed funds for breast cancer.
