A sea of pink will take over Corbould Park in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and the work it does in raising much-needed funds for breast cancer research.
After nine highly successful years, High Tea by The Sea is morphing into the Sunshine Coast Pink Ribbon Raceday on September 17. The fundraising campaign will once again include a raffle to win a new Mini Cooper Convertible, thanks to Coastline MINI Garage.
Organising the fundraiser again, Kim McCosker, from 4 Ingredients, says the beloved event to date has raised more than $500,000.
This year, it is set to triumph as the re-imagined Pink Ribbon Race Week is celebrated across the state.
“This vibrant and empowering initiative aims to raise awareness and funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, making a real difference in the lives of those affected by cancer,” Ms McCosker says.
“We all know someone affected by breast cancer.
“So, gather your family and friends and wear as little or as much pink as you want.
“Let’s cheer the NBCF in their quest to see zero deaths from breast cancer and stand united in the ‘power of pink’ at the Sunshine Coast Pink Ribbon Raceday.”
The NBCF is Australia’s leading non-profit organisation funding world-class research projects.
Current projects include investigating why young women get breast cancer, researching new personalised treatments for hard-to-treat breast cancers, and understanding how to prevent metastatic breast cancer.
Tickets to the event at Sunshine Coast Turf Club are available at sctc.com.au.
The raffle is open for anyone to enter, with all proceeds to go to the NBCF. Tickets can be purchase online at raffletix.com.au/2023highteabythesea until 5pm on Sunday, September 17.
