BOMADERRY Cricket Club’s Pink Stumps Day is gaining momentum with a number of legendary NRL players already confirmed as members of the all star team for the Sunday February 24 match.
Former international player and Footy Show star Bryan Fletcher, Australian, NSW Origin and Dragons player Shaun Timmins, NSW Origin and Parramatta player Eric Grothe Jr. and Dragon’s legend Shane Millard will all play in the T20 clash against the Bomaderry Young Guns. They will also help Milo In2Cricket super coach David Schofield with the morning’s super-eight cricket games for the youngsters.
The aim of the day is to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to provide breast care nurses throughout Australia, and to raise awareness that the motivation for
setting up the McGrath Foundation was that Glenn’s wife Jane was diagnosed with the disease when she was only in her 20s.
The BCC Pink Stumps Day will be held at the Bomaderry Oval on Bolong Road, starting at 10.30am. The family fun day will include something for everyone. As well as great games of cricket, there will be a waterslide running until the commencement of the T20 match, a barbecue, drinks, canteen facilities, fairy floss, best dressed competition and balloons.
A gold coin donation for entry is optional, and a Pink Package can be purchased at the event that will allow unlimited waterslide rides plus a face paint, hair spray, drink and fairy floss.
Thanks to the generosity of local businesses there will also be a monster raffle with prizes including Chooksy’s vouchers, a Champ cricket bat, car detail from McGuires Smash Repairs, perfume from the Bomaderry Pharmacy, gift voucher from Urban Hair and much more.
One of the eagerly anticipated features of the day will be the best dressed competition. Pink is the colour so entrants should use their imagination and come dressed up. During the half time break of the T20 match the dignitaries, including Mayor Joanna Gash, local member Gareth Ward and Ann Sudmalis, will judge who is the best dressed and the winners will take home a signed Mike Hussey cap donated by Bomaderry Cellars as well as a signed NSW SpeedBlitz Blues bat. Local radio personality Adam Straney will be the compere for the day. Spectators should take a chair and sun protection and prepare to settle in for a fantastic T20 clash between local cricket stars and their celebrity guests. Most importantly the day is to help people realise the importance of our breast care nurses. As one breast cancer patient recently said, “I could not have got through it without her”.
