Various fund raising activites were held in Hawkesdale, starting at school, with some of the year 9 girls selling a variety of coffees at the parent/teacher interview day/evening. The year 9/10 home economics class baked a variety of treats to accompany the coffees, including cupcakes with the distinctive pink ribbon atop. The girls made over $200, so a great effort – girls!!

Then an even bigger fundraiser was held in the local hall. Specially decorated bras were strung between the gum trees lining the main road through Hawkesdale. There was free admission but it cost $5 to leave the event!!! This raised a further $1000.
