Bad luck boys – Booby Fest's out of bounds

THERE are plenty of men who would probably be interested in the Dingo Booby Fest, but unlucky for them, this night is just for the girls.

With every shade of pink you could imagine, 43 women got together last week in the name of breast cancer and raising funds for research into the disease.

Delma Yip and Noeleen Olive held their first Dingo Booby Fest last year with 25 women and had so much fun they decided to do it again.

"Our goal this year was to beat last year's fundraising efforts of about $2700," Delma said.

"This year's event was a huge success, with $7200 raised which will all go towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation."

Dedicating the night to a very special friend who had one of her breasts removed earlier this year, the women played plenty of games including pass the parcel, tried their luck at a cent sale, had a best dressed competition and spoke about the disease that touches so many lives.

Delma thanked the community for its support and said the new tradition would continue next year.

"It was a great night and the women didn't hesitate to put their hands in their pockets for a good cause," she said.

"We can't wait to do it again next year."
