Pink Ribbon Day, the first thing that comes to mind heading to the races is to get all frocked up with a fabulous hat, but Pink Ribbon Day to many means so much more. Pete White lost his beautiful sister in her early 30s, a mother of two beautiful children to breast cancer. This is a charity close to every woman’s heart.
In Far North Queensland I know how long the flight is and another few days without my children, but I decided to support the cause and my friend Danica Erard who made hats for the day and the most coveted millinery, perspex, 'Couture for a Cause'.
Yes, we have the glamour of the races and looking and feeling fantastic, we had Champagne and the sun was shining, by the end of the day everyone had on their dancing shoes. Congratulations to Pete White, his brother and the beautiful Kate for bringing this day along with sponsors 7Eleven to have Breast Cancer Awareness and the legacy of his sister a part of Thoroughbred Racing History. Here are a few snaps from the day and after party, and all my gambling money went straight into the plastic collectors. The day was more than fashion, it was “Ladies, CHECK YOR BOOBS”. More photos to come soon on www.racingfashion.com.au .
