Breakfast for breast cancer at Bingara

October 23, 2008

Pink Ribbon Breakfasts are a fun, early morning get-together of friends, family or workmates to celebrate the achievements of breast cancer research and raise funds for further research.

Staff from Bingara Community Health Centre this year decided to organise their very own Pink Ribbon Breakfast, with all proceeds going directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Noelene and Erik Ozols from Bingara’s Imperial Hotel kindly agreed to host the Pink Ribbon Breakfast, which will be held on Friday October 24 from 8am.

And even if you can’t stay and enjoy a leisurely brekkie, community members can order ahead and take their breakfast to work. Orders can be made by phoning 6724 1629.

Community Health Nurse Tiffany Galvin said breakfast was the most important meal of the day- so why not combine nutrition with fundraising for a great cause!

"Breast cancer is one of the biggest health problems for Australian women. With more than 12,000 women diagnosed in the past year, chances are you will know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease," Ms Galvin said.

"The Bingara Pink Ribbon Breakfast will be a great opportunity for locals to get a group of friends, family or workmates together and enjoy some delicious breakfast treats, while at the same time raising awareness of this important cause."

Some of the menu items planned for the Bingara Pink Ribbon Breakfast include muesli, trifle, bacon and egg rolls, scrambled or poached eggs, and a Big Breakfast. There will also be an assortment of coffees, teas and juices.

Pink Ribbons will be available for purchase on the morning.
