What: Get your girls together for a fun night in and support those with breast or gynaecological cancer.
When: any time throughout October and November.
Why: To raise funds for breast and gynaecological cancer research, prevention & advocacy programs and information & support services.
When was the last time you had your favourite girls over? Girls' Night In is the perfect opportunity to lock in a date during October or November, promise to catch up, raise awareness of breast and gynaecological cancers and fundraise for Cancer Council NSW.
Every day in Australia, around 65 women are diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer. Money raised at your Girls' Night In will help fund Cancer Council NSW's research, prevention programs, advocacy campaigns and support services.
Your Girls' Night In can be as big or as small as you'd like. Host a dinner party, have a pamper session, put on a movie night or prepare your favourite food and spend time with your girls at home. Every dollar raised will go a long way towards beating cancer.
