ESPERANCE residents have raised a combined total of over $3000 for the Cancer Council by hosting two Girls’ Night In events.
Girls’ Night In is a fundraiser for Australia's national non-government cancer control organisation.
On October 26, Liv Gaunt hosted a Girls Night In that 12 women attended.
Ms Gaunt said she was motivated to support the Cancer Council after nursing her father through the final weeks of his battle with melanoma.
"With the help of my friends who attended my Girls Night In, online donations from people who were unable to attend and from friends in Europe, I raised just over $500, which I am pleased with."
On November 3, Jenny Vermey hosted a Girls’ Night In, which raised $2565.
Ms Vermey said she took the opportunity to raise some funds for the Cancer Council after her friend was recently diagnosed with cancer and another friend was going through treatment.
