The Hampton Rovers Amateur Football Club is pleased to announce it has raised $1,000 for the White Ribbon Foundation of Australia as a result of a very successful Ladies Night held on Saturday evening at the club.
Around 200 people packed the Boss for the first senior social function of the year and a great night was had by all.
The Hampton Rovers has worked hard in recent years to make women feel more welcome at the club through a number of initiatives including the Ladies Night function that is now an annual event.
The event has previously raised funds and awareness for Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, BeyondBlue and the Cancer Council. This year White Ribbon was chosen by the club.
The White Ribbon Foundation of Australia aims to eliminate violence against women by promoting culture-change around the issue. More information can be found by visiting www.whiteribbonday.org.au.
The success of the evening further illustrates the clubs commitment to the local community and charities. Also this year, the club will once again be participating in the Salvation Army door knock.
One of the highlights of the night was the 2010 Hampton Rovers Player Review a special performance by six players entertaining the large crowd. Easily the best yet since the inaugural Ladies Night function four years ago.
