For over ten years, Tin Can Bay’s Annette Bailey, previous owner of the Tin Can Bay fruit shop, has held events to raise funds to support those with cancer.

As all previous events had been held at the Tin Can Bay school, Annette was worried how she could raise money and still host a fun event.

She needn’t have worried, as ladies from the region turned out in big numbers to enjoy the sensational hospitality offered by Cooloola Berries.

The event raised vital funds for Cancer Council Queensland and offered support to those affected by breast and genealogical cancers.

Annette lost both her parents to cancer and has been involved with Cancer Council Queensland fundraisers for ten years, regularly hosting events for Pink Ribbon and Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

Annette said: “We are so grateful to Cooloola Berries for allowing us to hold the pink fundraiser there.

“They were so generous and for every meal or drink purchased $2 went towards supporting those affected by women’s cancers.

“The money raised will make a huge difference in the lives of those touched by cancer and will be used to help those who are unfortunately touched by this disease.

“Let’s join hands and beat cancer. Every little bit makes a difference.”
