As a way to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, the McGrath Foundation is calling on local communities to ‘Pink Up Your Town’ to help fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses throughout the country and to increase breast awareness in young people.

The team from PRD at Shoal Bay has heard the call and staff are getting in the pink.

PRD Agency principal Brian Gair told News Of The Area, “We are working with lots of businesses in the Bay, we are decorating our offices and we have secured donations for events that will raise funds for the McGrath Foundation throughout the Pink Your Town event.”

Fundraising activities include a sausage sizzle which is being held at the PRD offices on 20 October, which has been supported by local businesses Salamander Bay Village Butchers, Anna Bay Butchers and Sea Breeze Bakery.

PRD Shoal Bay held a golf day last year as a part of the program and raised $16,000 for the McGrath Foundation.

“We have been encouraging other businesses to join with us to help raise awareness in the community,” he said.

The sausage sizzle will start at noon on Friday 20 October and continue until sold out, however the team will be raising funds for this cause for the entire month.
