Peninsula Swans raise $1000 with pink socks
The Peninsula's junior Australian Football League club, the Peninsula Swans, have announced the final total of their Pink Socks Day fundraiser.
The club held its Pink Socks Day on Mother's Day to raise funds for breast cancer treatment and research.
This year the Swans held a cake stall and sold raffle tickets to bolster their efforts and have revealed the final tally for this year's campaign came in at $1000.
It's $400 more than what the Swans raised last year.
The Saratoga Hawks Junior AFL Club, their rivals on the day, also donned pink socks in support of the cause.
"It was great to see all players from the two clubs wearing pink socks," said Peninsula Swans Club president Mr Jason Fulwood.
"As community sporting clubs, it's important to be able to give back to the community where we can.
"We have a five-year strategy of encouraging kids of all backgrounds to join in and have fun and also making the club a family friendly environment.
"The Mothers Day event is an example of what we are trying to achieve with the club," he said.
The funds from Pink Socks Day 2019 have been donated to the McGrath Foundation.
