Musical and magical brunch for breast cancer
Posted at 2:15pm Wednesday 05 May, 2021
Music, magic and a massive amount of yummy food will be on the menu at the Ōrewa Community Centre on Saturday, May 15, for a Pink Ribbon brunch event between 10am and 1pm.
The Breast Cancer Foundation fundraiser will feature a selection of hot and cold food, including pink cupcakes, cookies and pastries, plus live entertainment from musicians Mema Wilda and Squashed Mozzies, as well as tricks and fun from a professional magician.
The brunch is being organised by Peter and Mai Hamdy, who run Auckland & Beyond Tours, and they hope to raise at least $1000. Peter says that with Covid slowing their business down and having lost a number of relatives to cancer, the couple decided to use their time and talents to organise a Pink Ribbon event.
There are two options for brunch lovers – either just drop in on the day and buy with cash, or pre-order a VIP seat and meal for $30.
Pink Ribbon Breakfast is Breast Cancer Foundation NZ's annual campaign to raise vital funds for breast cancer research, patient support, education and awareness. Each year more than 3300 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand and more than 650 will die.
