Legs’ ladies’ celebration day

FREELING Netball Club will double up on celebrations on June 17, when it hosts its first Ladies’ Day, in line with a 20-year premiership anniversary.

Even organiser Lynette Carmichael said the day will be both a celebration and a fundraiser.

“Because it’s the 20th anniversary of our first senior one premiership, which happened in 1997, we decided to have a ladies’ lunch to celebrate that, as well as raise some funds,” she said.

“Our chosen charity is the Cancer Council.

“We’re just going to have a lunch and a social afternoon, seeing as we have a bye.”

Ms Carmichael said that cancer is something that has had an impact on the club in recent times.

“I think it’ll be a major fundraiser for us and we’ll raise a fair amount of money for the Cancer Council,” she said.

“Cancer has hit us over the last few years quite severely, so it (Cancer Council) was an obvious choice.”

The day will feature a three-course lunch, auctions and some special guests.

“I have done a little bit of work in regards to getting some donations,” Ms Carmichael said.

“Michelle den Dekker will be a guest speaker.

“There’ll also be a representative from the Cancer Council.”

The event will get under way at noon at Freeling Oval.
