Kim Dowling with NoEyeDeers DJs Dan and Mason who will be performing tonight at the Ocean Shores Tavern

The Ocean Shores Tavern is gearing up for a Girls’ Night In Pink Ribbon fundraising event, and the Tavern’s lads are getting in on the act.

The event includes secret women’s business on the new deck of the Tavern, champagne on arrival, tasty treats, a cracking night of comedy with Ellen Briggs, DJs and dancing, and the brave boys behind the bar will be baring all (almost) all to help raise funds and show their support.

‘Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in Australian women,’  says Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Day coordinator Sarah Royal. ‘Over the last eight years, 180 women from the far north coast have been lost to this horrendous disease.

‘There has been a 31 per cent reduction in breast cancer over the last 20 years, but we need every bit of the community’s help to find that precious cure for cancer. Events such as Ocean Shores Tavern’s Girls’ Night In raise vital funds to contribute to both breast and gynaecological cancers and certainly give me hope for a cancer-free future.’

The Girls’ Night In is on tonight, Friday October 11, from 7pm, at the Ocean Shores Tavern on Rajah Road.

Tickets are just $10 at the door, and guests are encouraged to bring some loose change to help encourage the lads!

Gather the girls for a great night and help fight cancer.
