A different kind of fundraiser was held last week to raise money for breast and ovarian cancer not-for-profit group Pink Hope.

The Night of Burlesque was choreographed by local dance instructor Hannah Neilsen and showcased women who performed dances as the night’s entertainment to raise money.

Pink Hope is a preventative health hub, working to ensure every individual can assess, manage and reduce their risk of breast and ovarian cancer, while providing personalised support to at-risk women.

The inaugural event sold almost 90 tickets and was held at Manjimup Gateway.

The event raised more than $250 for Pink Hope and there were more donations for classes to be held next year to help with props and costumes.
