Join in Frocktober!

12 Oct 2017

Join in Frocktober! Image

Southbank sisters Lauren and Erin Ritchie are working to take their Frocktober fundraising to new heights.

Throughout October, the Frocktober campaign invites women to band together and wear their favourite dresses while raising funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF), with the goal of finding an early detection test.

In Australia, one woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer. It could be your mother, wife, sister, friend or even your daughter. Research is the answer.  ocrf.com.au

Over the last four years the girls have raised over $10,000 during Frocktober by taking on the challenge of wearing a different dress for each day of October.  So far, no dress has been repeated.  After hosting in 2016 an exhibition of over 130 of their Frocktober dresses, they are taking on the challenge of hosting a Charity Gala.

The Frocktober Charity Gala will be held on Saturday, October 21 at the Sheraton Hotel, Melbourne.

Lauren and Erin encourage you to get together a table of your friends for the event or join one of their tables. Further details and contact information is available at frockingforacause.org/tickets/
