'Pink up your Region' is happening all the way from Busselton to Augusta and everywhere in between from August 5th – 11th. This will see the entire region 'pinking up' to raise money for the McGrath Foundation.
The week-long event, driven by passionate volunteers & businesses in the community, creates a visual show of support for local families experiencing breast cancer.
From pink costumes, to pink ice-cream, pink lights, and pink wine – visitors won’t be able to miss the visual show of support collectively coming together.
The Beer Farm will hold the inaugural Pink Up Your Region Ball and other major venues have confirmed their involvement including Studio Gallery (A Brush with Pink), Settlers Margaret River (hosting pink themed music), and Temper Temper and the Margaret River Chocolate Company (with limited pink chocolates).
Where will your donations go?
Donating and supporting the event in-region from August 5th – 11th will mean you will be directly supporting the McGrath Foundation. Pink up your Region donations will be put towards placing specialist McGrath Breast Care nurses wherever they are needed around Australia.
The McGrath Foundation funds 132 McGrath Breast Care nurses in communities right across Australia, who have supported more than 70,000 families since 2005.
