In the Pink: Benalla's Pink Ribbon breakfast

Help raise funds for breast cancer research by joining Benalla Ensign editor Libby Price for breakfast.

August 29, 2014 4:00am

Benalla Ensign advertising consultant Issie Hill and editor Libby Price are getting excited for this yearís Pink Ribbon Breakfast.

Residents across Benalla and district are encouraged to get in early and secure their tickets for Benalla’s annual Pink Ribbon Breakfast.

Organised by Benalla Ensign in conjunction with Benalla Health, the breakfast is a fixture in the town’s calendar that attracts people from across the district.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in Australia; one in eight women will develop the disease in their lifetime.

In 2014, 15270 women are predicted to be diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia.

Although rare, about 110 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia each year.

This year the event organising team has a vision to expand, with a bigger and better breakfast aiming to raise $10000 for breast cancer research.

The Pink Ribbon Breakfast will be held on Thursday, October 2 from 7am to 9am at the Lakeside Community Centre glasshouse room.

Benalla Ensign editor and former ABC journalist Libby Price will speak about her colourful career in the media.

If you have been waiting for an opportunity to meet her, this is it.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions of breast care nurse Kerry Patford and a National Breast Cancer Foundation representative, and find out the truth about breast cancer research, treatment and outcomes.

There will be a musical performance from local group Home School, as well as a delicious breakfast supplied by Woolworths Benalla.

Tickets are $20 each, but book a table of 10 before September 30 and pay just $180.

A major raffle will be drawn on the day, with six prizes on offer thanks to the generous support of local businesses.

Raffle tickets are on sale now for $5 each from the Ensign office, Benalla Health and Stolz Furnishings.

Several other businesses around town are selling tickets too, so keep an eye out for the pink posters and secure your ticket early.

To purchase tickets for the breakfast, or for more information, drop into the Ensign office at 3/55 Carrier St, Benalla. Payment by cash or cheque only please.
