Pink Love: A Day on the Green is on Saturday is sure to offer something for the whole family to enjoyJanuary 30, 2014 4:56am
The Monigatti’s farm in Strathallan will be turning pink on Saturday to support the Echuca Oncology Department.
Pink Love: A Day on the Green will host many children’s activities, such as the reptile men, fairy floss, jumping castles and face painting, as well as a barbecue, raffle and live music.
The celebration was the brainchild of Echuca resident Kristi Cahill who was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2012 and has since beaten the disease.
She is expecting hundreds of people to turn up at the event with the aim celebrating life while raising money for Echuca’s oncology’s support care program.
Ms Cahill said the service, which offers fuel cards and assistance with bills to families undergoing cancer treatment, was invaluable to her.
With a mortgage and a young child to care for, the program offered support to Ms Cahill and her partner when she travelled to and from Bendigo for treatment and surgery.
Ms Cahill will sing at the event and her family members will also play music.
The event at the Monigatti’s residence, at 2394 O’Dea Rd, will run from 4pm until late.
Tickets cost $5 a person or $20 a family and can be bought at the gate.
All money will go towards the program.
Attendees are asked to bring a picnic blanket or chairs and can wear pink.
