BEAST cancer fundraising events are welcomed by those attending them, as they provide valuable social interaction for ladies in the local area.

One was held last Tuesday at the Waterview Bistro.

Ladies were dressed up to the nines and enjoyed a variety of finger food including salmon cakes, rice balls, salads, pizzas and the food was still coming out from the kitchen as I was leaving.

Many raffle tickets were drawn and some took home some great prizes of beauty treatments, bottles of wine, dinners, clothes, prize baskets of groceries, jewellery and I am really looking forward to using my voucher for the massage that I won!

Well done to all the ladies who attended this function, without their support it would be a battle for organisers to raise funds for research into a cure for breast cancer.
