Scorpions to go pink for McGrath Foundation
THE Leongatha Town Cricket Club is stumping up to be part of the Pink Stumps Challenge by hosting its own Pink Stumps Day – an initiative from the McGrath Foundation that brings the magic of the Sydney Pink Test to the local community.
The Scorpions’ big day will be held on Saturday, January 31 at Scorpion Park (Horn Street) from 1pm, coinciding with the club’s big A Grade clash with Nerrena.
“We can’t wait to host our Pink Stumps Day in support of the McGrath Foundation but we need the community’s help to raise as much as we can for the McGrath Foundation and smash our fundraising target,” organiser Kelly Davies said.
“We’re asking our friends, family, and colleagues to help us support the McGrath Foundation.”
The Leongatha Town Cricket Club’s Pink Stumps Day will be a fun day for ladies. The $30 entry fee will include a $10 donation to the foundation, complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival and a sumptuous afternoon tea in a special gazebo.
There’ll be prizes for best dressed (pink is a must!) and games across the day include a speed gun to see who is the fastest bowling lady!
There will also be a raffle for a wine pack donated by the Leongatha RSL.
On the field, the Scorpions will be swapping their green caps for pink ones.
Special pink sunglasses and wristbands will be available to buy.
One hundred per cent of all donations and profits from the day will go to the McGrath Foundation to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer in Australia has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
