We raised over $7000 – our best year yet! And we are already planning on how we can make it better next year!!
Want to relive a little from the day? Check out this cool vid – thanks Rose Darroch!
They will be when we tally up the final amount raised from our annual day, played out on Saturday the 8th February, 2014.
The rains stayed away this year (thankfully) and the game was played out on a hot sunny day at Downey Park.
With the players having assembled and having had their team photos taken, it was straight into it with a touch football game warm up being played in the outfield of the Audrey McLaughlin International Diamond. Interestingly enough, the Play for a Cure Legends knocked off the fancied Brisbane Broncos legends – a sign of things to come?
This year, as part of my welcoming speech, we did an Acknowledgement of Country by Aunty Valda Coolwell and had a presentation to the Australian Cancer Research Foundation where the cheque was accepted by ACRF board member, Mr Tim Crommelin. It was a good feeling, knowing our hard work for the past year has paid off!
The game started with lots of hits and this year the introduction of the young players, kept those Broncos on their toes! It looked like the Broncos were going to steal the game away, again, in the last inning but the P4AC legends held strong and took out the game 12-9 – finally I say 🙂
The raffle prizes were drawn with lots of happy folks claiming their prizes – special thanks to our supporters who donated – Bizzare Framing, Nudgee Golf Course, Allan Langer and the Broncos!
Final funds are being tallied so we will let you know the final outcome as soon as known.
