Cooking up a whole lot more support

LAST year Jean Jennings cooked up a feast for 12 at her Craignish home and raised $300.

She describes that as a “small-scale” effort that she is hoping to outstrip 12 months later.

This year she's aiming for a few more and a lot more.

“I'm hoping to fill the theatre,” Ms Jennings says about her Girls Night In fundraiser at Z-Pac Theatre on Friday, November 6.

She is hoping to raise $2000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation and if she can fill the theatre's 128 seats, she'll be well on the way.

A top night's entertainment will include music from Country Blue, a comedy sketch and a movie.

A free first glass of wine will also await everyone who pays the $20 admission.

“There are lots of prizes donated by the generous businesses of Hervey Bay and a lot more.

“But I don't want to give too much away.”

The Girls Night In begins at 6pm. Tickets are available from Mary Ryan's Bookshop and ABC Centre.
