Kris Rosaia is busy organising a girls' night in for Elmore women.November 14, 2012 4:19am
Elmore women will host a Girls’ Night In to raise money for breast cancer research.
Organiser Kris Rosaia said cancer was a disease that touched everyone.
Mrs Rosaia recently lost three women in her life to breast cancer and organised the fundraiser as a way of fighting back.
‘‘It doesn’t go that way for everyone, so let’s get some money together to go towards research,’’ she said.
Mrs Rosaia combined her 40th birthday last year with a Girls’ Night In, but wanted to share this year’s event with everyone.
‘‘There are so many women (in Elmore) busy on committees and everyone volunteers,’’ she said.
As well as raising money, Mrs Rosaia said the event was a chance for women to come together and chat and she encouraged women of all ages to attend.
Entry is $15 which covers a donation to cancer research, finger food, tea and coffee and entertainment by Elmore musician Ella Spizzica.
District businesses have donated produce and a raffle and games will be held.
The event will be held at the Jules Chevalier Centre function room, behind Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School, Elmore.
Bookings are essential and can be made by contacting Mrs Rosaia on 0403
