Staff at Wanaka's Federal Diner will go (almost) topless
for charity tomorrow, when they host a breakfast for the New
Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation's Pink Ribbon Breakfast
campaign running throughout May.
"Because we're right at the end of the month I just wanted to
do something . . . fun and a little bit different," cafe
co-owner Emilie Brosnahan said.
"We're predominantly women that work at Federal Diner and we
thought it was a good idea to encourage the fact that we have
healthy breasts and we thought that in getting them out it
would make a very fun breakfast," Miss Brosnahan said.
Staff would be wearing pink aprons and "not much else", but
the event would be done in a "very classy" way.
At the breakfast from 10am tomorrow, items including
cupcake-icing lessons with staff members will be auctioned.
Tickets are $35 and can only be bought before the event from
