Dine Pink –  We want to extend a huge thank you to South Bank, Brisbane for turning completely pink last week to raise awareness of breast cancer in the community and the work of BCNA! From the Mini Field of Women to the survivor’s gallery to the William Jolly Bridge being illuminated with pink ladies, it was a truly beautiful display of support for the 16,000 women and men who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. A special mention goes to South Bank’s restaurants and bars who participated in Dine Pink donating money from specially designed meals, drinks and tables to BCNA. What a wonderful week it was!

Our partners & supporters

BCNA is fortunate to have partners and supporters that help us ensure we deliver our programs and services free of charge to Australians affected by breast cancer.

VIC Tennis – A HUGE thank you to Vic tennis for coming to our office to present a giant $10,000 cheque they raised at their pink sports day this year! What an incredible achievement.
