Riders from near and far turned out in pink for the annual Beaudesert Cutting and Western Performance Club National Breast Cancer Foundation fundraiser.

People came from Toowoomba and Warwick, Caboolture and Tamborine Village, joining locals from Beaudesert and surrounds for a common cause.

At time of print, club President Troy Welsh said the fundraising tally was at about $1700.

The 16 October event was the club’s first pink fundraiser since before Covid.

The club, which last year celebrated its 50th anniversary, has 80 to 100 members and experienced a strong turnout for its major annual fundraiser.

It was also a cutting competition day for the club, which has eight cutting days throughout the year, as well as eight ranch versatility competition days.

Mr Welsh said the pink day was a success.

“We had stalls selling pink cupcakes and some pretty cool prizes one of our members donated – the pink horse rugs for the winners and the pink garlands – and a lot of people from town donated things for the monster raffle we had on the day,” he said.

“Extra people came out and had a bit of a look who wouldn’t normally come and all in all it was a really good day.”
