The ladies will join in a friendly T20 match.

The ladies of the Pearcedale Cricket Club will paint the town pink this Friday to raise vital funds for breast cancer.

The annual Pink Stumps Night will be held from 6pm on Friday 26 February at the Pearcedale Cricket Ground, with the mums, sisters, wives and girlfriends of players – or any other lady who wishes to be involved – joining together for a friendly T20 game of cricket and a variety of fundraising activities.

A silent auction will see some exciting prizes raffled off, as well as an iPod shuffle with the chance to win $100.

All money raised on the night will go towards the McGrath Foundation.

This is the third year of the fundraiser; in 2020, the club raised over $2000 for the foundation, and committee member Renae said the ladies hope to raise a similar amount this year.

“I think everyone knows someone who’s had breast cancer,” she said, explaining the impact the funds will have on breast cancer support and research.
