PINK was the colour of the day at Ocean Grove Memorial Reserve earlier this month.
Ocean Grove Cricket Club held a ‘Pink Stumps’ day during the first day of the A Grade match between the Grubbers and neighbour Wallington.
Pink stumps were used and players wore special pink caps in support of the McGrath Foundation, which raises funds for breast-care nurses throughout the country.
The day was called ‘playing for a cause’.
“The day was a absolute smashing success,” Fiona Spiby said.
“We had over 80 women attend the ladies afternoon and the bidding on silent auction/raffles and spot prizes helped us smash our fund-raising target. The boys from OGCC wore their pink hats and zinc on the day.”
The day raised around $5000 and Fiona said it may become an annual event.
After play, two former cricketers – Stephen Long and Rodney Procter – auctioned off their moustaches for the McGrath Foundation.
Current player and local musician Sam Hanson then entertained the crowd well into the night.
