Breakfast supports cancer research

Travelling from Gore for the Pink Ribbon Breakfast at the Town and Country Club in Balclutha yesterday are (from left) Lacie Kennedy (9), Tegan Kennedy (17), Tracy McDonald and Lee-Anne Hewlett.

Organised by Balclutha locals Judy and Russell Houliston, the annual breakfast aims to raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation to support research to cure breast cancer.

The country club was brimming with more than 40 people from near and far. The breakfast was followed by a silent auction and a raffle.

Steady commitment to maintaining the fundraising event’s success is what drives the Houlistons, who next year will have their 10th year of hosting the breakfast for the Breast Cancer Foundation.
