Ka-ching: Which bank raised money for breast cancer?

THE Commonwealth Bank in Tweed City Shopping Centre today dressed up and decorated the branch in pink all to raise money for the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia

The staff were also holding a pink morning tea selling cupcakes to customers in exchange for a gold coin donation with a lunch time sausage sizzle for customers in exchange for a $2.50 donation.

"We are a major sponsor of the breast cancer foundation we decided to do a cup cake bake sale and barbecue to raise some money for research," said customer service representative Savannah Bishop.

"We baked at least 50 cup cakes plus one giant one that took two hours to cook."

The bank gets very busy around the lunch time so a charity barbecue was a good way to raise money for a good cause.

"In the past we have raised over $500 so we are hoping for that or better.

"Everyone is dressed in pink even the boys dressed up."
