Angela Ordish set herself a target of $1000 when she began organising a Pink Ribbon fund-raising afternoon tea and was delighted when the event exceeded her goal raising a total of $1405.
In an emotional thank you to her guests, Angie said she wanted to make a real difference to Australians affected by breast cancer.
“My own mother Gwenda Barnier is thankfully a survivor but I lost my best friend to breast cancer and I believe that world-class research is the best way to prevent deaths from breast cancer and can improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed, and treated,” Angie said.
“The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has one vision – zero deaths from breast cancer and together we can help them get there.
“The foundation is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation funding world-class breast cancer research and every dollar counts.”
Angie is grateful to local business houses for donations of wonderful raffle prizes and many of the guests went home with a gift after a sumptuous afternoon tea and fun games including “pin the boobs on Betty” and a ping pong ball toss into a line-up of bra cups on a wall.To order photos from this page click here
