Make it a Girls' Night In to help beat women's cancers

Thursday, 1 October 2015

Do you love catching up with your girlfriends and the ladies in your family? Why not bring everyone together for a very special event, and raise much-needed funds to help beat women's cancers at the same time?

Whether it's an intimate event at your home, or a huge event out at a venue, it's all part of Girls' Night In – the fundraising campaign by Cancer Council to beat women’s cancers in Australia.

Cancer Council is urging women to register a Girls’ Night In to support the estimated 18,715 women who will be diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer this year. All money raised will help fund cancer research, early detection and patient support programs.

Every October, Australians come together to show their support for Cancer Council through Pink Ribbon Day, Girls’ Night In and other Pink Ribbon fundraising events. Cancer Council is the only organisation that works across every area of women’s cancers: research, prevention, support and advocacy.

Cancer Council aims to raise $7.2 million through Pink Ribbon Day, Girls’ Night In and Pink Ribbon fundraisers this year.

How to get involved:

Getting involved is easy. Register a Girls’ Night In or a pink fundraiser, volunteer, order a merchandise box or donate by visiting www.pinkribbonday.com.au, phone 1300 65 65 85 or find us on Facebook www.facebook.com/pinkribbonday
