The Shakespeare Partners Pink Tiger Day 2019
The 9th Annual Pink Tiger Day was held on Saturday 18th May at South Oval and a glorious sunny day welcomed 250 guests into the beautifully adorned marquees to watch the Curtin Wesley Tigers don their Pink Tiger jumpers and raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
This event has become renowned as a highlight on the social calendar for players, sponsors and supporters alike and continues to be the largest fundraiser for The McGrath Foundation by any community sporting club Australia wide.
The wonderful Nat Locke from Nova FM was the MC for the day once again and she was joined by Freo Dockers AFLW star Evie Gooch who kindly shared her experiences as a footballer as well as her mother’s battle with breast cancer throughout Evie’s childhood. Renowned auctioneer Tiny Holy then went about his business and maximized the funds generated from the brilliant array of donated items that went under the hammer. It was also great that the founder of The McGrath Foundation, Tracy Bevan made the trip from Sydney specially to be part of the day.
Delicious canapés, fine wines and live music throughout the day ensured a vibrant, upbeat atmosphere throughout the afternoon. As always the generosity of everyone involved with the day was incredible and saw Pink Tiger Day 2019 raise an amazing $41,000, bringing the total raised over the past 9 years to $311,000!
The club would like to extend a massive thank you to the major sponsor, Shakespeare Partners and to everybody that contributed in any way to the success of the day (be it large or small) including all of the Corporate Sponsors and donors of goods and services.
