FOR the second consecutive year, the Mooroopna Cricket Club will be joining hundreds of other clubs, businesses, schools and community groups around the country in supporting the McGrath Foundation’s Pink Stumps Day, by hosting a Pink High Tea while the club’s A, C and E Grade teams take to the pitch in pink.
After raising $6,200 last year, this year’s event will run on Saturday, February 28, with the ladies of the club hosting a high tea event with raffles, silent auctions, mystery boxes and nail painting to keep attendees entertained while the club’s teams hit the cricket pitch.
Mooroopna Cricket Club President, Darren Young said, “We’ve been keen to get involved with the McGrath Foundation and to have our ladies involved in something they enjoy.
“The club is always happy to support charities and give back to the community.
“The ladies did a great job with the fundraising last year and it’s a great social day.”
The Pink Stumps Day event will be held from 1pm to 4pm at the Parson’s Cricket Pavilion, Mooroopna Cricket Club, Midland Highway in Mooroopna.
Tickets for the event are available at the Paul Wickham Pharmacy, 83 McLennan Street, Mooroopna.
