Pyjama Cricket is Real in Maleny! On Saturday 17th September at 9.30 am, two cricket teams will do battle wearing their best PJ's in a Charity Cricket Match, battling each other in earnest to win the Maleny Golden Thong Award.

The inaugural match, played last year on the Aub Cork Oval, saw The Maleny Maulers do over Andrew Powell's Celebrity Eleven - and all for a very good cause. Last year, they raised $2,000.

The players asked friends, family and colleagues to sponsor their runs or make a donation, and all monies collected were donated to the National Pyjama Foundation. (The Pyjama Foundation is a Brisbane based not-for-profit organisation committed to giving children in foster care the same opportunities in life as other children. For more info go to: www.thepyjamafoundation.com)

This is seriously entertaining social cricket and definitely good spectator sport! Hosted by MDSRC (who are running a barbeque and licensed bar) the event is sponsored by The Range News, who are also fielding players in Andrew Powell's Celebrity Team.

Sunny Coast Kids are also holding their Family Fun Day same day on the other cricket oval, with jumping castles, face painting, kids crafts, activities, and lots more – a great family day out of cricket and fun for all ages!

Support the kids and this fun day of cricket. Come along on 17th September and join "The Hill" at the Aub Cork Oval, BYO chair or rug and don't miss this entertaining sporting event at the Maleny Showgrounds; barbeque lunch and refreshments will be for sale on the day.
