Tickled pink

THE TERRACE will be tickled pink during the upcoming Labor Day long weekend.
Pink Petal Day, the first of its kind, has been initiated by local Beachside Blooms florist Shelley Keast and president of the Ocean Grove Barwon Heads Breast Cancer Support Group Julie Rodger.
The event will see the Ocean Grove Lions Club putting on a sausage sizzle, with Bakers delight donating over 20 loaves of bread for the day, and an abundance of pink flowers for sale.
“The day is about coming in and purchasing some pink flowers, either in memory of a friend or family member, for someone currently battling or just as a donation to the cause,” Julie said.
The day is hoping to raise much needed funds for the Breast Cancer Network Australia and the local support group.
“I’m trying to help raise money to help the local women, as well as their families, recover and support them,” Shelley said.
The ever growing support group has been responsible in orchestrating meals and groceries for local Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads ladies whilst undergoing cancer treatment, providing gift and care boxes and most recently a library of wigs and scarfs.
“All profits raised on the day will go towards BCNA and our group to aid the ongoing support for ladies battling breast cancer along the Bellarine,” Julie said.
The day will run on Saturday March 8 between 9am and 1pm. Deliveries by Beachside Blooms are also welcome on the day. To make an order call 5255 3030. For more information email Julie Rodger at julesrodg@gmail.com.
