The Beaudesert Soccer Club is holding a massive Pink Day to raise funds for the Cancer Council on July 28.

The Rangers’ 21 teams will sport pink in matches running from 8am and a charity auction will be held until 3pm with a different item up for grabs in between each game.

As well as sponsoring jerseys for each outfit, local businesses have donated a raft of fantastic prizes, including hot air balloon rides, gift vouchers worth up to $500, an air conditioning unit and installation, a sound system, and even gym memberships.

On the day, there will be plenty to keep the kids entertained with tethered balloon rides, an inflatable playground and pink hair spraying.

Don’t worry about tucker - there will be plenty on hand with a barbecue fired up throughout, plus a  cake stall and coffee van.

In the evening, live music will lead into the main game which kicks-off at 7pm.

The Senior men face Blackstone United in a Queensland Christian Soccer Association Division Two clash they should win, having slayed the mighty Dragons twice already this season.

Manager Lachlan Snow said his finals-bound side, which sits third on the ladder, has been in a slump of late but hopes to find form against United.

“We’re hoping to finish in the top two but we’ve been in a bit of a rough patch lately,” he said.

“We’ve lost three of our last four and drawn the fourth, so hopefully, we can get back to the winning ways and climb the ladder.”

Beaudesert Soccer Club Fundraiser Coordinator Nicole Teese issued a huge thank you to the members of the community who have gone above and beyond to support this event.

“To support 21 teams is just amazing,” she said.

“”We’re very grateful.”

Mrs Teese said the cause is very close to the hearts of many of the club’s members.

“Nearly everyone in our soccer club community has been touched by cancer in some way,” she said.

Head along to Selwyn Park, corner of Bromelton and Hopkins Streets, Beaudesert on July 28 to support your local football team and the Cancer Council.
