Prostate Cancer Luncheon 

Commercial Tavern Ayr Entrance

A PROSTATE Cancer Luncheon is being planned for the Burdekin district to “enhance much-needed funds towards Cancer Research, which can benefit each and every one of us”. Entitled “Do It For Cancer”, the luncheon will be held at Coutts Commercial Hotel in Queen Street Ayr, on Saturday, April 1, commencing at 11.30am. 

Although the luncheon is called a Prostate Cancer Luncheon, with all of the profits going to the Cancer Council Queensland, Ladies are also welcome to attend and be part of the event. Previously held in 2021, the luncheon was supported by the Cancer Council Queensland and resulted in over $3000 being raised from the 60 people who attended, which was a great outcome.

Already, the 2023 Luncheon has attracted someone’s support with a donation of over $2000.

Guest speakers at this fundraising event will include Dr Kiren Hazratwala, an Urologist Surgeon from Townsville, who will present a very informative talk about all areas of Prostate Cancer, as well as a representative from the Cancer Council Queensland Townsville Branch. 

The opportunity will be provided for questions to be asked by those attending while experiences will be welcome to be shared.

Lucky door prizes will be on offer, while there will also be Auctions on the program along with “lots of fun”. 

Entry to the fundraising event cost is at a very low $5 per person, although larger donations will be very welcome. 

The Luncheon will be an extra cost for those attending.

The menu for the event will be available for perusal shortly on the “Prostate Cancer Luncheon” Facebook Page. To book for the fundraiser, prospective attendees should phone Coutts Commercial Hotel (4783 1999). Further enquiries should be directed to Mike on 0400 696 386
