Brisbane Panthers Softball Club became known as The Pink Panthers on Saturday the 6th November, 2010.
The Pink Panthers participated in Cancer Council Queensland’s Girls Night in – with a bit of a twist.
All Panther players (Under 15 to A1) purchased Pink Socks to wear for their fixture matches and got into the spirit of raising funds for Cancer Awareness/Research. And it must have paid off, all teams bar one, were winners in their fixture matches.
As well as wearing the pink socks (and looking great), Panthers ran an all day BBQ, selling food to the hungry hoardes at softball.
A big thank to president Roger Pollard who diligently walked the grounds, at training and game day, over the last 10 days with the socks selling them on Play for a Cure’s behalf. 91 pairs were sold with more to come!
Craig, Andrew, Pete, Scott and Roger – thank you for being brave and wearing the BRIGHT PINK shirts – they looked fantastic and I must say, you all look great in pink! The winner of the day in fashion stakes went to Andrew, who was dressed from head to toe in pink – he even put a pink cover on his iPhone!!
Thank you to the guys and girls from the club who helped man the BBQ but I reserve my biggest thank you for the Selwood children, Kiara, Shiann and Zach. They were at the BBQ stall ALL day and never complained. In fact I think I would be safe in saying they enjoyed doing their bit to raise money. Thanks kids, you’re the best!!
Panthers Softball Club hope to make this an annual event, and I look forward to making Pink Panther Day as successful as it was yesterday, in the future.
Finally the most important bit of news…….we made $688.30 – well done Panthers, a wonderful effort and Play for a Cure thanks you!
