To celebrate our last big home game weekend of the season, Garden Suburb Football Club – in conjunction with Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation will be holding a “Boot Out Breast Cancer” fundraiser from Friday, 3 August, 2018 and Sunday, 5 August, 2018.
The Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation is a Newcastle (Hunter) based and founded non-profit organisation, which raises much needed funds to provide information and support for women and men diagnosed with, or being treated for breast cancer in the Hunter, and for their families.
They help and support the families of the hunter region by offering house cleaning, lawn mowing, transport to and from treatment/medical appointments and providing education assistance for children of families affected by breast cancer.
The Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation also works closely with and supports the work of organisations that promote support groups, education of breast care nurses and assistance to people needing special care.
This cause is something dear to our hearts. Not only do we all know someone impacted by this disease in our lives outside the game – but one of our own has been fighting the battle since 2016. She is a true inspiration to all of us, not only playing for our All Age Women G Grade team, but also playing up to 3 games some weeks to support her club.
Our “Boot Out Breast Cancer” weekend will see a total of 26 games held, including:
– Friday Night All Age Mens play on Friday, 3 August, 2018
– MiniRoos (ages 6-11), U12’s, U15’s, All Age Mens and Over 35’s play on Saturday, 4 August, 2018
– All Age Women & Zone League 1 play on Sunday, 5 August, 2018
On the day, we will be serving champagne & strawberries, delicious pink-themed baked goods as well as holding raffles, a 100 Club and Fill the Boot for Breast Cancer.
We are looking for businesses to donate prizes towards the raffle, and also to join us on the day to help raise some much needed funds and we would love your support!
