This October, the Mudgee Region will support the McGrath Foundation in respect of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Our region best known for its sophisticated food and drink credentials will turn PINK for the second year in a row, raising funds for the foundation that places Breast Care Nurses in communities throughout the country.
Last year was an incredible success with Mudgee being the first town in Australia to turn PINK, engaging over 280 local businesses in the Mid-West Region to raise $140,000 for the foundation.
This year, the region has already increased the number of local businesses participating in this truly important month-long initiative, championing another Australian first as the Mudgee Rural Fire Brigade turns their fire engine PINK for the month.
It’s not just local businesses getting on-board this year, Mudgee residents are encouraged to take part in the online competition to ‘Pink Up Your House’ and further spread the colour PINK through the community.
