Each year The Wesley Curtin Amateur Football Club hosts its ‘Pink Tiger Ladies Day’ to support the McGrath Foundation in its fight against breast cancer.
Phoenix Insurance Brokers is the major sponsor of Wesley Curtin and is proud to be associated with this fantastic event.
Saturday 13 June 2015 marked the 5th Annual Pink Tiger Day. A huge crowd of ladies gathered in our “Pink Marquee” and enjoyed sensational food, champagne, wine and entertainment while watching our League team don the famous Pink Tiger jumpers for their game against CBC Fremantle.
A record $52,000 was raised, smashing the previous record of $31,000, set in 2014. Pink Tiger Day continues to be the largest single fundraiser for the McGrath Foundation by a community sporting club, Australia wide. Over the past 5 years the day has raised more than $150,000.
Special Guest and McGrath Foundation ambassador, Adam Gilchrist had some terrific words to say at half time and happily engaged in a record number of “selfies” with all the pink ladies! Auctioneer, Tiny Holly, then cranked up the fundraising side of things ensuring bidding for all auction items was enthusiastic and extremely generous. The evening rounded off with leading Perth band The Fit Swimmers pumping out some brilliant tunes that had the dance floor packed.
The event is held annually and tickets are available via the Wesley Curtin Football Club website. See www.wesleycurtin.com.au
