Mayor Khal Asfour is set to take a backseat when wife Sally takes centre stage for Bankstown’s Girls Night In on Wednesday 31 October.
The Girls Night In is part of Pink Ribbon Month which is the annual Cancer Council campaign highlighting the fight against breast cancer.
“Unfortunately, most of us know of someone who has been touched by cancer, particularly breast cancer,” Sally said.
“It’s a disease which often kills but it doesn’t have to be that way, it can be prevented with regular checking and breast screenings.
“Pink Ribbon Month helps us to also get the message out about the importance of regular health checks, at the same time, highlighting the support services available.”
Council has joined forces with Hoyts to host a Girls Night In movie event at the Bankstown cinemas as part of Pink Ribbon Month.
Hoyts will screen Bachelorette starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzi Caplan.
“Up to to 200 lucky residents can join my husband and I for what will be the only screening of this movie in Bankstown,” Sally said.
“I’m looking forward to it, it will be our chance to not only support the Cancer Council and its great work, and the important preventative messages of Pink Ribbon Month, but also for Bankstown’s women to enjoy an evening together.”
Tickets can be booked by contacting the Mayor’s office on 9707 9999.
