Bosom Buddies Trivia Night

The Bosom Buddies Trivia night will be held on Friday 3 June at the Hellenic Club and will be this year’s major fundraiser for Bosom Buddies.

Ian Meikle, Broadcaster, is MC for the Trivia night, the Quiz Master will be Steve Doszpot MLA, Shadow Minister for the Ageing, the Independent Property Group will conduct the live auction and George Huitker & Junk Sculpture will be performing throughout the evening.

Steve’s annual Trivia nights are well-known as evenings of fun, music, delicious finger food, prizes, auctions, raffle and trivia galore.

Bosom Buddies rely totally on donations and community fundraising to provide their services. Bosom Buddies is a small local charity with two main roles: to support women diagnosed with breast cancer and to raise awareness about the importance of the early detection of breast cancer:

  Their volunteers work with the breast care nurses at Canberra hospitals to visit or phone women who have been 
diagnosed or treated for breast cancer. For many women it is reassuring to meet another woman who has 
experienced breast cancer.

  Each year they pack approximately 500 support bags (Blue Buddies) for all women having treatment.

  Bosom Buddies offer regular social events during and after treatment.

  Bosom Buddies offer awareness sessions to workplace and community groups, sporting clubs, schools and colleges, and every 
year distribute thousands of shower tags to encourage self-checking.

  They advocate for women who have experienced breast cancer and sit on a number of expert committees.

Breast cancer affects women of all ages. One in eight women in Australia will be diagnosed with breast cancer, each year over 400 women in Canberra and the surrounding region are diagnosed with Breast Cancer and just
 about everyone knows someone – a mother, grandmother, sister, partner, friend, or work colleague – who 
has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Bosom Buddies offer friendly, practical support at a difficult time.
