Close to $10,000 raised at local fundraiser

Without a final figure yet, organisers from Saturday’s Girls Night In fundraiser say they have raised close to $10,000.

Locals Chez McKeating and Marilyn Heberle organised the event to raise money for Perth’s Crawford House.

A total of 150 woman packed Eighth Street’s Activewest Basketball stadium for a night of girly fun.

With fashion parades, displays, giveaways, raffles and entertainment, the Mid West Community got behind the cause to see a whopping total raised.

Crawford House is a home away from home for people who are undergoing treatment for cancer.

Organiser Chez McKeating said she was absolutely blown away with the support of the Mid West community.

“The people in this community are absolutely amazing, they are the ones that spur me on to do things like this,” she said.

“The response we got was absolutely huge and people’s generosity is astounding.

“So many people donated time, food, products and energy to this and I cannot thank them enough!”
