The first time the Northern Beaches Girls Night In was held in 2010, 19 people attended and it raised $1000. Kirsty Gardner, of Dee Why, decided to hold the fundraiser after a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, the event has grown rapidly with the help of more friends coming on board as organisers and the support of the community.
Dee Why RSL offered a room for free in 2011. A year later the event at Dee Why RSL was sold out raising $34,000, making it the biggest Girls’ Night In event in the country, according to the Cancer Council. Every year we choose a different theme. We had a Funky 80's night, a Mighty Women night, a 1920s Gatsby-themed event, it is so much fun. I can’t think of a better reason to get your girlfriends together and let your hair down for a night of dancing and entertainment.
