Friday Night Footy at the MCG takes on special significance . It is the venue for the annual afl fundraiser for breast cancer research and treatment.

For several years now the pre match entertainment is of patrons paying a $50 fee to walk onto the MCG , wear a pink poncho and assemble into the shape of a woman.

An impressive sight , a thrill for those involved and a monetary boost to a very worthy charity .

All this before the first bounce of the football !

The ensuing game between the Melbourne Demons and Western Bulldogs should also provide exciting entertainment .

Both teams had a loss last weekend and will be keen to post a win.

Both have lost players to cancer . Ted Whitten , Footscray’s favourite son battled the disease and Melbourne’s Jim Stynes is currently battling it .

Fans will be out in their teams football jumper , jersey , guernsey .

Many will have them on under their pink poncho on the night.
