What a surprise it was to clock over 28k including on and offline donations from a few different channels... Well Done Ballan and District!


UNBELIEVABLE AMAZING MAGNIFICENT OUTSTANDING INCREDIBLE WONDERFUL EXCELLENT - they are all words that we have heard used to describe the fund raising efforts of Pink Up Your Town - Ballan, and now it is official... we can release the final figure!

I am pleased to announce that through your efforts and the broader Ballan, Gordon, Mt Egerton, Blackwood and Bacchus Marsh districts, we have raised $27,848 for the McGrath Foundation in the first year of Pink Up.

Well done, and what a job! Everyone give your self a pat on your back, or better still do a breast check on yourself! #pinkupyourtown #pinkup

We're all turning PINK

Although the  $ figure on this page looks low, it does not reflect the money that has been deposited into the 'Pink Up Your Town Ballan '  account from the numerous on-going activities and sentinel events that have happened every weekend in October.

Pink Patronage and Pink Passion is everywhere in our community - from getting a car serviced by pink-clad mechanics, your computer pink-fixed or upgraded, a pink parma at the pub, a pink cake at the bakery, a pink fabric or slice at the Mill - all of this is  happening every day alongside major events.

We have had the Gordon Pub & Social Club High Tea, the Gordon Soup and Pottery lunch, the Ballan Cricket Club Pink Stumps Day. 

This weekend we have the VIP night at Noddy's Cottage on Friday, the Pink Fun Run on Saturday morning and the Sunday afternoon function at the Commercial Hotel in Ballan.

And to end the month there is the inaugural Pink Mayoral Ball mentioned in the previous post. Tickets available on line with all of the details in the post. This is Ballan's first year of PUYT ... and judging by the amount of community support and interest, it will not be its last Come and join us - have fun and support a great cause.
