Pink Pilbara Breakfast
In 2018, due to the success and ongoing support, we took a leap of faith and decided to brand our own event and raise money for our local families. The PINK PILBARA BREAKFAST was born and it turned out to be the most successful event we have ever had. We raised a HUGE $38,000 and donated this to a Pilbara owned and run Not For Profit who support Pilbara families going through cancer.
The 2019 Pink Pilbara Breakfast was another hugely successful event. The room was a sea of pink with 230 tickets sold! There were plenty of laughs shared with friends and workmates over breakfast, as well as a few tears shed during a recorded video put together by some of our Cancer Support Group members. As they shared their stories along with family members, we were given an emotional insight into their lives and their cancer journeys.
ALL of the money raised in 2019 was donated to our local Well Women’s Cancer Support Group. The group is facilitated by two of our very own staff members who are cancer survivors, and through offering this support group, we have been able to fill a gap in cancer services in our own community.
We are thrilled to announce that due to the incredible support we received, we were able to raise a total of $45,000!
The Well Women’s Centre has been hosting a local Cancer Support group for over 12 months. Facilitated by two of our own staff members who are cancer survivors, we have been able to fill a gap in cancer services in our own community. Going forward and with the generous help of our supporters, we plan to continue working in this space and filling the gaps of all people in Hedland affected by this troubling illness.
