On 26 October 2017, over 400 people will come together at The Ark Centre in Hawthorn to launch Melbourne’s first Pink Challah Bake – an evening of togetherness and sharing to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer.  Family groups including grandmothers, mothers, daughters and friends will join together to set the tone for what promises to be a remarkable evening for Jewish women in Melbourne.

The Challah Bake will be opened by Stacy Hayman, Breast Cancer Survivor and Founder of the Pink Challah Bake who will speak about what inspired her to develop this initiative. Delia Baron and Ronnit Hoppe will share their challah-making skills and while the dough rises, attendees will be inspired by Breast Cancer survivors stories.   They will also have the chance to win fantastic raffle prizes and take part in an auction for a painting and piece of diamond jewellery.  At the end of the night, everyone will take home their pink challah to bake, enjoy, and spread the awareness about breast cancer! 
This new event is being organised by group of dedicated volunteers who have been touched by Breast Cancer in their family.  Funds raised will be donated to Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) the peak national organisation representing and supporting Australians affected by breast cancer. The group has already raised over $10,000 through ticket sales and donations from generous sponsors including The Spotlight Foundation and Caulfield Park Bendigo Bank. 
Organiser, Stacy Hayman says nearly everyone in the local community knows someone affected by breast cancer.  “Almost 16,000 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia this year alone. Every time a woman is told she has breast cancer, the impact extends to her family, friends and those around her in the community,” said Stacy Hayman. 
“Providing support for women and families affected by breast cancer is important for our local community. The Pink Challah Bake is an excellent opportunity for locals to rally together and offer their support to those affected – be it our friends, our family, or perfect strangers.” said committee member Simonne Winecier. 
This will be an uplifting and unforgettable event not to be missed!  More than three-quarters of the ticket allocation has already sold out so don’t delay.  Tickets can be purchased online at
