A special ladies-only fundraiser is sure to bring out all of our local superheros this weekend to raise awareness and vital funding to combat women’s cancers.
The Girls Night In, organised by local Bec Marks, has raised $15,785 over the past six years to support women and their families with treatment, accommodation, patient services, and other everyday costs.
Women and girls attending are encouraged to dress up as their favourite superheroes and join in the fight against women’s cancers.
The event helps fund helplines, information call centres, counselling, and information booklets related to cancer. The fundraiser will be held on October 14 from 7pm to midnight at the Central Whyalla Football Club.
Fundraising Manager Bec Marks said there would also be several stalls, a local band, raffles and auctions at the Girls Night In.
“There’s really a lot going on as part of the night, we play a couple of games and quizzes which is good fun. It’s all the hope to raise funds for awareness,” she said.
“It’s a fun evening where ladies get together and support one another and share stories about battles lost and battles won.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring a plate of supper to share on the night. For tickets head to https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/becs-girls-night-in-2017-ladies-only-event-tickets-34935703630.
However that’s not all that Ms Marks has planned, with Girls Night In and the Whyalla Players joining forces to bring Jungle Fever to Whyalla on October 27.
The adults-only theatre production will be accompanied by a dinner, and all proceeds from the night will come back to the Girls Night In.
“The Whyalla Players will be putting on the play which is a funny comedy. Men and women can come to this event as well, so there’s bound to be plenty of giggles,” Ms Marks said.
According to the Whyalla Players, the production features a dashing hero, plenty of corny one liners and humorous innuendo.
“We want to make a laid-back, enjoyable night for everyone,” Ms Marks said.
The exciting theatre dinner will be held at the Left Hand Club.
