What better way to help raise vital awareness and funds for the fight against women’s cancers than by getting a group of your best gal pals together for a girly night in!
This October, thousands of women across the state have joined together to host a Girls’ Night In to raise funds for the one in six Queensland women diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Ms Chris McMillan is challenging all women to get involved.

“Although October is coming to a close, women can continue to host a Girls’ Night In right through until the end of November,” Ms McMillan said.
“Make a pledge today to get your friends together and host an event – simply plan a fun night in and donate what you would have normally spent on a night out to Cancer Council.”
Ms McMillan said the events can be as big or as small as you like, with many doing pamper parties, a movie night, clothes swap or pot luck dinner.
Girls’ Night In is also a reminder for women to think about their health, ways they can reduce their cancer risk and detect cancer early.
“This is an opportunity for women to get together, talk about their health and encourage each other to participate in regular check-ups and cancer screenings,” Ms McMillan said.
All funds raised through Girls’ Night In events are directed into cancer research, patient support services and prevention programs for women affected.
