Dear Club Members,
Its that time of year for the Bulls in Pink Day which brings the ladies of the club together to raise much needed funds and awareness for a very important cause.
The 2018 Bulls in Pink Day and Champagne High Tea this year would like to donate our funds to the Pancare Foundation, in memory of one of our own members who sadly lost her fight this year with Pancreatic Cancer. Kim Walker, mother to Toby from our U8’s team.
By attending this event, we can come together as a community to help raise funds to support more patient services, early detection and research into new treatments.
In almost 40 years the survival rates for people with pancreatic cancer has not changed and only 7% live beyond five years. This is something we feel very passionate about changing.
Pancare Foundation is Australia’s only charity fighting pancreatic, liver, biliary, oesophageal and stomach cancers. The outcomes for patients diagnosed with these cancers has improved very little over the past four decades and represents a leading cause of cancer in society today; nevertheless, research remains severely under-funded. The aim of the Pancare Foundation is to increase survival rates and provide support to people affected from diagnosis through to recovery and bereavement.
So save the 25th of August in your calendars and head down to Yallambie Park to watch the Senior Mens Team take on FC Clifton Hill wearing Pink Socks – it will be a fantastic day of football with Banyule City donating all proceeds of the Gate Admission and the Champagne High Tea to the cause.
There is limited seating for our Champagne High Tea so get your tickets by following the below link:https://www.tickethost.com.au/v2/eview.aspx?Event=1475&Perf=0
If you can’t make the day you can also donate directly online at:https://inmemory.gofundraise.com.au/page/BanyuleCitySoccerClub

We hope to see you all at the 2018 Bulls in Pink Day and as we endeavour to raise as much funds possible for the Pancare Foundation so that they can help many others like Kim and her family.
