This August saw the launch of Cancer Council Queensland’s Girls’ Night In fundraising campaign, presented by Sofitel Brisbane Central, the French way.
The fabulous night kicked off with speeches from Sofitel Brisbane Central’s General Manager Hayden Hughes, host Lady Mayoress of Brisbane Nina Schrinner, and Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan.
With live music, circulating canapes, and raffle draws to be won, guests were encouraged to not only have fun, but to bond over their passion for supporting and empowering women.
The event was filled with laughter and inspiration with attendees saying how motivated they felt to get involved to help raise awareness and funds for women’s cancer research, prevention, and support services.
Cancer Council Queensland sincerely thanks the Sofitel Brisbane Central for their hospitality, and Studio Bonito for the decorations.

About Girls’ Night In
Every day in Australia, around 50 women are told they have breast or a gynaecological cancer. Sadly, around 12 Australian women will die each day from a women’s cancer.
The Girls’ Night In campaign urges women to invite their friends, colleagues, or loved ones over for a night in of fun to help create a future free from women’s cancers. Hosts can make their Girls’ Night in as simple or as fancy as they like, from dinner parties to movie nights, to clothes swaps.
The aim is to simply have all your guests donate what they would have spent on a night out to Cancer Council’s work in women’s cancers.
Girls’ Night In is a special way to not only fundraise for a great cause, but also provides an opportunity for women to think about their health, ways they can reduce their cancer risk and detect cancer early.
