Pink Ribbon Breakfast Day

I was heading into work this morning and saw at the train station entrance and the foyer of my work building, stalls being set up to sell teddy bears, pens and pink ribbons pins. It was a timely reminder for me that October is the time to think all things pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month and next Tuesday 26th October being Pink Ribbon Day.

Cancer research has always been dear to my heart and even more so since the loss of a young family member not so long ago. I immediately bought a pink ribbon pin to add to my collection and to help fund clinical trial clinical breast cancer research and the care of cancer patients..
Another cool way to support the cause is to attend the cancer foundation's Pink Ribbon's Womens breakfast held at various locations throughout the country in the next week.

If you are in Melbourne, why not head down to Doncaster next Saturday morning and join the Doncaster Salvation Army and one of the major sponsors, the lovely people at Absolutely Gorgeous hosting the Melbourne's breakfast day this year.

For only $15, your ticket to Doncaster’s Salvation Army Pink Ribbon Breakfast will include a delicious continental breakfast, entertainment, guest speaker, beautiful stalls with products for sale, a fabulous silent auction and goodie bag (packed with goodies from the sponsors). There will also be prizes and Pink Ribbon merchandise for sale. All monies raised will go towards essential breast cancer research.
