Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) has announced that tickets are now on sale for the return of Field of Women LIVE at the Melbourne v Western Bulldogs match at the MCG on Friday, 7 May 2010.
Field of Women LIVE 2010 will see 14,000 people in pink ponchos form the shape of BCNA’s Pink Lady on the MCG to highlight the growing number of Australians personally affected by breast cancer each year.
Pictured are Melbourne Football Club Captain James McDonald, Melbourne Football Club’s No. 1 ticket holder and club legend Ron Barassi, Western Bulldogs club legend Doug Hawkins and Western Bulldogs Captain Brad Johnson, who joined BCNA CEO Lyn Swinburne for the official announcement of Field of Women LIVE 2010.
In announcing this year’s event, BCNA CEO Lyn Swinburne AM, herself a breast cancer survivor, explained, “We have had so many women asking us when we were going to do the Field of Women LIVE again at the MCG. Those who donned the pink poncho in 2005 have told us what a powerful experience it was for them to stand with friends and family and to feel so supported. Many have said it was the first time they saw themselves as ‘survivors’.”
The AFL has thrown its full support behind the event and has called on everyone, no matter which team they support, to come along on Friday, 7 May 2010 and show their support for those affected by breast cancer.
Tickets to attend Field of Women LIVE 2010 cost $50 and are now available for purchase. Included in the ticket price is a pink poncho, a back pack and entry to the game. Free public transport on metropolitan and regional V/Line services is also included.
Previous Field of Women LIVE events have completely sold out, so get in early to secure your tickets to attend this year’s event. For further information and to purchase tickets to the Field of Women LIVE 2010, please visit www.fieldofwomenlive.org.au.
One hundred per cent of this registration fee will go to BCNA for its work in supporting Australians with breast cancer and their families. BCNA acknowledges the generous support of its sponsors in making this possible.
