Jane McGrath a timely reminder of the importance of cancer research for Bond University students

Four Bond University students are putting their public relations skills to good use, hosting an event to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

‘Dress for Less’, will feature top-shelf fashion budgeting advice from Vanessa Kellet, a young up-and-coming designer.

Breast cancer survivor Robyn Cameron will also share her story of triumph over the disease.

The event, organised by Bond students Aja Denman, Kylee Lynch, Katie Mooney and Rhiannon Sargent, will be held at Don’s Tavern, on the Bond University campus, from 4pm on Monday, July 7.

Rhiannon Sargent, one of the event’s organisers, said the lively afternoon was a wonderful chance to raise awareness of the disease that affects one in eight women.

“Breast Cancer has touched my family personally, so it’s great I can use my love of fashion to raise money and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” she said.

The first 30 students to arrive at the event will be treated to a glass of champagne and have the opportunity to win prizes donated by local businesses including Champagne Doll Boutique and Surfers Rowers.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the only national, not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to supporting and promoting high quality research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer.
