"Pink Day" at the footy
Posted 30 May 2011

There was a rosy hue around the Front Turf on Saturday 28 May, other than that provided by a resounding win the Wesley First XVIII recorded against Carey Grammar.
Pink was in abundance to raise funds for cancer research, in keeping with what is fast becoming a national tradition in sporting contests on nominated days. Pink balloons, pink wrist bands and other pink items for purchase, pink fairy floss (to entertain children, and tempt adults with fond memories of showgrounds) and food stalls (with pink bunting of course) were the order of the day – while the team, not to be outdone, wore specially prepared pink socks. First teams at Glen Waverley were similarly kitted out that afternoon, and substantial amounts were raised on behalf of the Cancer Council of Australia. This follows a similar day held at Scotch College during the cricket season.
