Perfect in pink, girls raise cash
ORGANISERS of Saturday night's Girls Night In were tickled pink by the third annual event's success.
More than 200 women attended the sell-out event at Cudgen Leagues Club, organiser Kim Telling said.
“We raised more than $9000 for women's cancer research,” the Kingscliff mum said.
“My target was $8000 so I'm really, really happy.
“It makes it all worthwhile when you raise that much money and see everybody enjoying themselves.”
Mrs Telling said the whole event was a fantastic success.
“From what I could see they were really enjoying themselves.
“It was just a fun evening.”
Topless, bow-tie clad waiters, Mrs Telling said, were the evening's biggest highlight.
“They got right into it,” she said.
“As a surprise there was a strip show as well, all in good taste of course.
“He was a great guy and just got into the whole night.
“We raised $1700 just in donations from the women to see the show.”
The ladies also took part in fun games, complete with costumes for each table captain.
“That was brilliant; it went off really well,” Mrs Telling said.
“And the food was fantastic, the club did an awesome job.
“Each table got three bottles of champagne from the club.”
Mrs Telling said she is now looking forward to cleaning her house and relaxing after three months of planning.
