WIMMERA residents put on their best dresses, wigs and moustaches for the Cross Dress for Cancer cabaret on Saturday night.
Cross Dress for Cancer is an initiative by Horsham’s Morrow family members Wade, Shannon, Gavin and Daniel.
The Morrows and a few others will ride postie bikes from Thredbo, NSW, to the mouth of the river in South Australia in October.
They will cross dress during the ride and raise money to support the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute.
Saturday’s cabaret also raised money for the institute.
Shannon Morrow said it was a great event.
“It was amazing and a lot bigger than we expected,” he said.
“We had about 120 people there and there was some pretty amazing outfits.”
Mr Morrow said the final amount was still being tallied but he expected the event to raise more than $6000.
“We were absolutely pleased with that,” he said.
Mr Morrow said preparations were going well for the October postie bike ride, which would cover more than 1500 kilometres.
“Most of the boys have got their bikes organised, it’s going to be good,” he said.
Mr Morrow said there would be some small final fundraisers before the ride.
“We have a few raffles still on the go to raise some extra money,” he said.
The Morrow family wanted to raise money for cancer research after their father and grandfather Kevin Morrow died.
