Pink Stumps Day Success

It was an absolutely glorious day for a game of cricket as the tennis club and cricket club came together to play a modified 20/20 for Pink Stumps day to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.

It was great to see the turnout with both young and old donning the pink hats and zinc cream in the name of a good cause.

All names were put into a hat and two teams were selected to battle it out on the field ably captained by Matthew Thomas and Adam Gould.

Highlights included:

Big THANK YOUS go to:

To keep Potsie happy the final score saw his team make 89 runs to come away with a 28 run victory.

The raffle made $329, the donation box at the butchers and on the day made $226.55 with another $100 donated online.

This gave us a grand total of $655.55 for the event. For our first up effort this was a mighty good result!

We are hoping to burn one of the bails (and maybe put them in a pink Tupperware container) to make this an annual event where we combine both tennis and cricket on the day and raise more funds for such a worthy cause.
