Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne.

Have fun while fundraising on Pink Stumps Day
Pink Stumps Day is an annual fundraising event organised by the McGrath Foundation to raise money with the intention of providing Breast Care Nurses in communities all across Australia.

The concept of Pink Stumps Day is that teams get together and participate in a game of Cricket, dressed and decorated in Pink, and have a bunch of fun while fundraising for a very worthy cause.
There are prizes for teams who raise a certain amount of funds, such as the large Pink Stumps Day Kit for raising $500 and a smaller Kit for raising $250.
Teams who register before 30th November, 2017 will go into the draw to possibly win four tickets to attend the Ultimate Sydney Pink Test Experience in January 2018.
Please check out this footage from Roxby Downs Cricket Association discussing their experience participating in Pink Stumps Day.
The year 2018 will be the 10th anniversary of the Pink Test, in which the Sydney Cricket Ground turns to a sea of Pink. Traditionally Day 3 of the Test, is Ladies Day and has been renamed Jane McGrath Day - this will be on January 5th, 2018.
Get a group together and have fun while raising funds! Photo courtesy of Pink Stumps website.
