Show the world how powerful pink can be.

Raise funds for women’s cancers and feel the Power of Pink.

Host a pink event

Host a pink-themed party, morning tea, trivia night or another event to raise money for women’s cancers.

Do you hold a regular barbecue, book club, bingo night or mother’s group? Why not make the next one pink-themed? You could try charging a ticket price, bringing in pink food to sell, or getting your hands on prizes to raffle off.

Wear Pink

Encourage your guests or colleagues to wear pink and make a donation at your next get-together. Hold a best-dressed competition or make a rule that anyone who doesn’t wear pink has to donate extra.

You could even see if people will sponsor you to wear nothing but pink for a whole week, or even a month!

Get active in pink

Support the cause by adding a pink twist to your next yoga class, workout group or sporting event.

Whether everyone wears a pink headband or wristband, or decks themselves out head-to-toe in pink, it’s a great way to raise awareness and funds for those affected by women’s cancers.

Dunbar Rovers paint the Reg pink

When 3 women close to Emma were diagnosed with cancers within 6 months of each other, she knew she had to do something to help. So she asked her football coach if she could run a pink bake sale and raffle on a tournament weekend at their home ground, Reg Bartley Oval, to raise money for women’s cancers.

Over four weeks the pair planned, baked, printed and called around for favours and donations. A club member who worked for a major beverage brand donated all the soft drinks. A butcher donated all the meat for the barbecue. Junior players contributed baked goods. A church lent them a jumping castle, and local businesses piled in to donate raffle prizes. Even rival teams joined in with support and donations.

On the day of the tournament, teams were decked out with pink socks, pink shoelaces, pink head bands, and one team even wore an entirely pink kit in celebration of the event’s motto: “Paint the Reg pink!”

In total, Dunbar Rovers’ pink event smashed its $3,000 target and raised a huge $7,413 for women’s cancer research and support.
