Weerona College in the pink!
Residents at Weerona College have again risen to the challenge of raising awareness and funds for their chosen charities -- the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and the McGrath Foundation.
The Weerona television room was recently ‘pinked out’ with a large contingent of female residents and staff taking part in Girls Night In.
Special guests included Illawarra breast care nurse Lynda Horning and breast cancer survivor Luciana Rossi.
The college’s young women were taught how to do a proper breast care check and shard in Luciana’s story. Afterwards, college residents joined in a bra decorating competition and also into cake decorating. This was followed by a very successful fundraising auction.
In addition, residents, staff, sponsors and guests gathered in the Weerona Dining Room for the college’s 4th Annual Think Pink Breakfast. Major sponsor Steve Melchior from Just Cruisin’ Harleys treated attendees to a Harley and sidecar ride for a pink note donation.
The college made a special acknowledgement of Viktoria Michel for her tireless efforts in securing sponsorships and donations from local businesses in support of these two major events on the Weerona calendar.
Residents raised about $10,000 to be distributed to the NBCF and the McGrath Foundation. They also raised $4,500 for the Cancer Council’s annual Relay for Life.
