The seventh annual Big Aussie BBQ hosted by Tony Pasin MP with the help of the Limestone Coast Prostate Cancer Support Group brings the total amount raised over the years move to more than $6,000.
“All funds raised go towards the fantastic work that the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia do in reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men and their families.”
“I am thrilled with the level of support for this important initiative which not only raised important funds but also awareness of the disease and the need for men to undergo appropriate health checks.”
“A huge thank you must go to Limestone Coast Prostate Cancer Support Group who assisted with the barbeque, and more importantly were on hand to provide support and information to members of our community.”
“Thanks also to Tracy Bryant, our Limestone Coast Prostate Cancer Nurse for joining us and having valuable discussions about prostate cancer with many local men on the day.”
“I also extend my thanks to Baxter Hire, Baker’s Delight and Shelton’s Butcher for their generous donations, without which this event would not have been the success it was.”
Thank you to those who were unable to attend the BBQ in Mount Gambier and sent donations via the funding page on the foundation’s website.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men, killing over 3,300 men every year.
