G-strings, a leotard and laughter
A GROUP of 65 women painted the town pink, attending a mega Girls Night In hosted in Boyne Island by Lyn Adams and Mandy Green.
With a theme of "Best and worst from the op shop with a hint of pink", the women donned their favourite shade of pink on October 8 all in the name of charity.
There were hot pink leotards, pastel pink boas and everything in between as some serious fashion faux pas, frights and fantastic successes were committed on the evening.
Venue for the night was the Boyne Island State School hall, kindly offered by school principal Michael Hurst.
A breast cancer survivor, Lyn has hosted her own Girls Night In for the past five years. Mandy has hosted her Girls Night In for the past four years, prompted after a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Both are good friends and decided to join forces this year and host one big gathering.
"Most people go to both of ours so it made sense to have one Girls Night In," Lyn said.
The women were blown away by the result, raising $7741 to go to Cancer Council Queensland.
"It was just phenomenal," Lyn said.
"We went and collected donations from patrons at Tannum Sands Hotel the night before and raised $560 just from this."
Lyn said the Girls Night In was a great success with plenty of laughs and champagne flowing freely.
"We had nannas in walking frames, a gym instructor in a g-string and some really, really old clothes," Lyn said.
"The fashions were outlandish."
The night featured a multi draw raffle and bake auction with Ros Waters from ReMAX Gold Gladstone volunteering her services as auctioneer on the night.
Bidding was fast and furious with the highest bid being placed on a handmade basket with brownies, made by Chris Holden, fetching $120.
