Tip Your Hat for ACCF.....

Are you organising a Melbourne Cup Day luncheon or event this year? If so, you may like to consider doing something really worthwhile and raising funds for the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation.  In the time it takes the horses to run the Melbourne Cup race this year atleast 1 woman will die of cervical cancer somewhere in the world. The ACCF is trying to change this!

By fundraising for the ACCF you will be contributing to the life-saving work that the foundation does to educate and vaccinate women in order to eliminate cervical cancer both in Australia and in developing countries. In countries like Nepal, Bhutan and Kiribati, where cervical cancer is the no.1 cancer killer of women, ACCF is working to help vaccinate girls and screen women who would otherwise not have access to this health care. It costs just $50 to vaccinate 1 girl or to screen 3 women, so every dollar counts!

The person who raises the most money (minimum of $500) will win a Celebratory Race Pack which will include a $300 basket of cosmetic goodies, a bottle of Moet and a custom designed race hat or fascinator by BrisStyle's very own milliner, Sandrine Marsh. The winner will be able to choose between the below two designs or pick something from Sandrine's shop.
