Club Taree has gone all out once again to raise funds for Cancer Council NSW’s Pink Ribbon Month, even the internal columns have received a splash of colour, looking awesome in pink.
Over the last three years Club Taree has raised a magnificent $33,432 to support the work of Cancer Council NSW in their quest to finding a cure for women’s cancers.
Throughout the month of October, Club Taree is holding a number of fundraising initiatives including special events, the selling of merchandise and raffles.
The Club Taree Ladies Golf Day became a Pink fundraiser with 120 golfers, all decked out in pink for a shotgun start and all looking to win the fabulous $2500 Hole-in-One prize provided by Club Taree, Hennessy Coffee and Mid Coast Gaming.
Although no one was lucky enough to score a hole-in-one, everyone was very happy to see the $2,500 added to the overall funds raised on the day, totalling a magnificent $9500.
“Cancer Council is the only charity in Australia that funds research into breast and gynaecological cancers while providing complete support for anyone affected by women’s cancers,” said Katie Mead, Cancer Council NSW’s community relations co-ordinator.
“Funds from Pink Ribbon month help us run support services like support groups and the Cancer Information and Support line (13 11 20) where women can speak to experienced cancer health professionals for advice, information, or to chat to someone who understands what they are going through.”
“We can’t thank Club Taree enough for their ongoing support.” Katie continued. “As well as supporting Pink Ribbon, the club is actively involved in the Manning Valley Relay For Life and Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”
Paul Allan, brand and communication manager of Club Taree said: “The Club Taree turns PINK campaign is one of our favourite community events on our annual calendar.
“It is a wonderful opportunity for our staff to engage with our community members and guests through fundraising. It is also an important opportunity for us to promote awareness of the Cancer Council, and the work that they do to support those affected by cancer”.
