Breakfast in bed and a day being waited on at home was replaced with hot pink shirts, fast paced football, fundraising and less than perfect weather.

A perfect day was had by all, raising funds for Breast Cancer Awareness and watching some quality football by the boys of the Hunter Gridiron League.

The HGL created hot pinks shirts especially for the event, and gave over one hundred out on the day to spectators for a donation to the cause.

Corey Harragon from the HGL told News Of The Area, “Overall the day was a big success, in our first attempt at something like this we raised $670 for breast cancer awareness.”

“We think that was a great effort considering the weather and Mother’s Day had kept a few people away.”

“We appreciated all the mums who chose to come spend their day with us and hope they enjoyed the day we had for them.”

The HGL hope to do an awareness round each season, alternating the cause every year.

Lee Smith from the HGL told News Of The Area, “Corey and I are extremely proud of the football community that is continuing to grow in the Hunter and Port Stephens.”

“The day was great with lots of family coming out on the day and showing their support for a great cause and the Hunter Gridiron League,” he said.

The Bombers were unfortunately defeated on the day by the Marauders, going down 18-6.

The Cannons beat the Miners 22-19 in the second game.
