Members and fans at Saturday night's North Queensland Toyota Cowboys' game against the Knights will have an extra incentive to show their home team colours.
The Icon Cancer Foundation will be taking over Cowboys Community Corner at 1300SMILES Stadium, offering patrons the opportunity to spray their hair or paint their faces in Cowboys’ colours as part of their fundraising campaign to support their new cancer clinical trials program in Townsville.
“For a gold coin donation, supporters will be able to get their hair sprayed or their face painted in Cowboys' colours when they first enter the stadium,” Jaimi Miller from Icon Cancer Foundation said.
“We're really excited to meet the people of Townsville and get the word out about the Foundation and the patients and families we help every day through our clinical trials program.
“We’d like to thank the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys for giving us this great opportunity to promote the Icon Cancer Foundation and our work in providing patients with access to the very latest treatment options which are otherwise unavailable to them.”
The commercial space for Cowboys Community Corner is commissioned to support 12 charities throughout the year and is funded by the Cowboys.
"Community Corner is part of the Cowboys’ commitment to assisting local charities to build awareness and support in the community,” Cowboys General Manager – Community Fiona Pelling explained.
“Each of the 12 not-for-profit organisations we select to support through Community Corner are making real contributions to the North Queensland community with the support of volunteers and community fundraising efforts.”
