Seymour hoping for big Pink Stumps Day

Maroons cricketers hope to beat $1800 raised in last year's fundraiser to fight breast cancer.

There's plenty on offer at the Seymour Cricket Club's Pink Stumps fundraiser on February 22.

Pink Stumps Day is developing into an annual highlight of some clubs’ cricketing calendars and Seymour has a big day planned at Chittick Park on February 22.

It’s a day when cricketing and non-cricketing people alike can have lots of fun for a great cause.

The Maroons are holding a family day to celebrate the efforts of women for the McGrath Foundation fundraiser to fight breast cancer. And it promises to be an even bigger day, as the event will go on into the night.

The A-grade game starts at 1pm and there will be a barbecue (and sandwich) lunch at a cost of $5 available while the game is being played. The Maroons will be the Pinks for the day, with gear similar to this photo from last year’s event.

After the play finishes there will be a cocktail night, where entry of $10 gives you a free cocktail, with finger food provided. Each cocktail after that will cost $5, with all proceeds towards the cause. Dress code is along the pink theme of the day and ‘‘after 5’’.

Seymour is hoping to beat last year’s effort where the club raised $1800.
