IT is back again and promises to be bigger and better than before.
The Ballarat Girls Night Out returns for its second year in August, following the enormous success of last year's inaugural event.
All money raised on the night goes towards the new Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre.
The patient well-being fund for patients at the cancer centre has been established by the Ballarat Girls Night Out committee.
It will help cancer patients in a range of ways while they are undergoing treatment. It can include funds for transport, wigs, home care and other things involved with cancer.
More than $23,800 was raised last year and it is hoped the total will be even bigger this year.
Sponsored by ConnectPink, which is a new social media platform for regional women across Australia, among others, more than $5000 has already been raised this year.
The Courier advertising manager Jade Morrison said ConnectPink was delighted to jump on board and support the night.
"We feel there are real synergies between what we are trying to achieve in regional Australia with the McGrath Foundation and the awareness campaign of the Girls Night Out event," she said.
"I encourage as many women as possible to be involved for what will be a fantastic night."
