The Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation are heading back to the heady days of the 1980s this month for their major fundraising event.
Now in its 14th year, the ever-popular Bubbly Breakfast will take place at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley on Sunday 27 October and as always Peterson House will be providing its signature pink bubbles for the event.
The long-breakfast will have a decidedly ’80s bent thanks to Newcastle-based rock trio The Cassettes featuring former Screaming Jets drummer Craig ‘Rosie’ Rosevear.
These guys are sure to have up and dancing to some no-foolin’ classics from the iconic decade, typified by leg warmers and fluro scrunchies!
This year, all funds raised on the day will go towards HBCF’s Memory Box program – an initiative that facilitates the creation of a video message and photoshoot for family and friends. The video and photos are then saved onto two USB drives that are housed within a beautiful wooden Memory Box.
“The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare released a report in March this year that highlights that more needs to be done for Australians diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and here at HBCF, we believe that it’s our duty
to address that need for our Hunter community,” HBCF president Lisa Bartley said.
“Creating a Memory Box for families living with terminal cancer is a profoundly precious gift that we will be proud to offer if we can raise the funds.”
The HBCF Bubbly Breakfast is on at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley on Sunday 27 October from 8.30am to 11.30am. Get your tickets here.
