YOU are invited to wear something pink to join the Yanchep Red Hawks Senior Football Club and the Yanchep-Two Rocks community in supporting a great cause at their annual event of the season, Pink Day.

Wearing pink is a way of celebrating women and men who have survived breast cancer and supporting those who are currently battling the disease.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, every day about 57 Australians are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Being told you have breast cancer changes lives in an instant and has a ripple effect through families, workplaces, sporting clubs and the community.

Pink Day is on Saturday, August 6 at Splendid Park from 1pm to 5pm.

Tickets with access to the event, food and a drink on entry included cost $25 each.

The tickets will be available on the door but can be pre-booked by inboxing the club’s Facebook page

Also available for purchase will be $2 raffle tickets with some prizes donated by club members and local businesses.

The raffle will be drawn at the completion of the game.

All proceeds from ticket sales and the raffle and will be donated to Breast Care WA and Two Rocks Yanchep Assisted Cancer Travels (TRYACT).

Yanchep News Online has provided two copies of A Football Genius – The Peter Hudson Story supplied by Hardie Grant Books as raffle prizes.

The event is supported by LJ Hooker Two Rocks.
