Tatong Cricket Club will turn pink when it plays host to Pink Stumps Day and Ladies' Lunch.MONIQUE FREER February 18, 2013 4:21am
Tatong Cricket Club will be tickled pink on Saturday, February 23 to raise money for the McGrath Foundation.
The cricket club will host its inaugural Pink Stumps Day and Ladies’ Lunch, with all proceeds going to the McGrath Foundation to fund breast cancer research and support.
Having seen her great-grandmother, grandmother and aunt battle and survive breast cancer, Larissa Scott was keen to support the Australia-wide initiative.
‘‘The McGrath Foundation and any fundraising for breast cancer research and support is close to my heart,’’ Ms Scott said. ‘‘When I took the idea of having the Pink Stumps Day and Ladies’ Lunch to the Tatong Magpies Cricket Club, it turns out (husband) Daniel was one step ahead and had already registered the club for the day.’’
The Ladies’ Lunch will include nibbles and champagne in the sunshine for the beginning of the game, before moving into airconditioned comfort for a two-course lunch. There will be games, prizes and a raffle throughout the day, so even if cricket is not your main game, there is still plenty of entertainment on offer.
The Tatong cricketers will wear pink caps and zinc, and use pink stumps and wicket-keeping pads when they play host to local opposition Warrenbayne.
Play starts at 1
Tickets for the Ladies’ Lunch are $40, with at least $15 going directly to the McGrath Foundation. Tickets include nibbles with bubbly, two-course lunch with choice of wine or soft-drink, two tickets in the raffle, two game tickets and a McGrath Foundation pink wrist band. Tickets must be purchased by February 17; contact Larissa Scott on 5767
Funds raised for the McGrath Foundation help place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, and increase breast-health awareness in young Australian women.
