Bruce and Terri Geissmann from Rainbow Beach Hardware, Fishing n Camping said the final count for the Pig Day Out was $7854.60, and included a wonderful $1500 from the Surf Club, all in memory of their daughter Kelly to fight melanoma. They send a huge big thank youto the businesses and families who gave their sponsorship and support, plus all the volunteers and workers on the day and to everyone who joined in the fun (Ed: there were too many to list in the paper!).
Dressed in Kelly’s favourite colour, family and friends helped fundraise for melanoma prevention
