The ‘Pink Lady’ is a potent symbol. She can be found in the simplest form as a lapel pin and on the MCG with families donning pink ponchos and filling the space defining the motif to acknowledge breast cancer survivors and remember those who have died.
The big blow-up ‘Pink Lady’ at the entrance to Gandel Hall at the National Gallery of Australia was spectacular and a perfect welcome for the inaugural Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) Pink Lady Luncheon, which was a stunning success.
With the support of their event partner Konica Minolta, BCNA called on lots of local organisations to help with the lunch, as well as the sponsors who continue to give generously wherever they can to find that elusive cure. This incredible network of volunteers was what convinced David Cooke, MD of Konica Minolta, to take the advice of his employees and put BCNA into the chosen group of NFP’s for their support priorities. Guest speaker was Kathryn Fagg, a lady with formidable career achievements, a self effacing attitude who happens to be a BCNA Board Member, Reserve Bank Board Member and a breast cancer survivor.
Yes they’re everywhere; monies raised will help to increase the survival rate.
