As well as Glen McGrath and McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracy Bevan, local motocross star Steve Mini will get involved in the evening.
The vintage casino-themed fundraising evening for the McGrath Foundation will be held at Parklands Resort, on Saturday, October 7 for Pink Up the region.
Mini, who was involved in the 2016 iteration of the event, will be opening the night with a series of jumps and tricks to “get the excitement for the evening going”.
Approached by Hugh Bateman, Pink Up Mudgee committee member, Mini set the wheels in motion soon after and is eager to give more to the Pink Up drive.
“It’s such a good thing for the region, and there’s so many great people involved in what is a great cause,” Mini said.
“I already had a few things that I was doing but the chance to open the Royal Ball and get a bit of excitement for the event going is something else that I’m happy to do.
“It’s a great initiative, and anything that I can do to help out the town is something that I’m eager to do – this is just another thing that I think Mudgee does really well.”
Mini’s signature bike will also be on show at Ross Granata Motors for the next month in the lead up to the region fundraising event, with decals and stickers for Pink Up emblazoned on his bike similar to last year.
Mini also thanked friends from Sydney who were bringing up the portable ramp that he would be employing at the Pink Royale Ball.
The ball hopes to raise much needed funds for breast care nurses on behalf of the McGrath Foundation.
Mini’s contributions also comes as the Pink Up idea spreads across the state, with organiser Hugh Bateman proud of how far the awareness campaign has spread.
“It’s been picked up by other places; Dubbo, Griffith, Albury, Port Stephens, Newcastle, and also in Sydney in Annandale and Newtown,” he said.
“It’s extremely gratifying to the extent that people want to be involved.”
