From fluffy robes to silk pyjamas, members of the Cretan Association of Sydney & NSW got into the spirit of National Pyjama Day on Friday, July 22 to raise money for children in foster care.

A total of $1,751 was raised by the Cretan Association for The Pyjama Foundation, which provides mentoring, education and resources to support young children in foster care.

The successful fundraising event was held at the Ashbury Senior Citizen’s Centre in Sydney’s inner west, and was well attended by the dancing groups and members of the Cretan Association.

On the night, “best dressed” prizes were awarded to the different dancing groups of the Cretan Association, as well as a category of members and parents. 

The Cretan Association’s Committee ran their weekly kitchen with all the proceeds going to The Pyjama Foundation. Members also made donations on the night, and a raffle and auction were held to support the cause.

“It was great to see our members and dancing groups wearing their Pyjamas and getting involved for such a good cause,” President of the Cretan Association, Terry Saviolakis, told The Greek Herald after the event.

“Despite being such a cold night, the hall was full and we are very happy to have raised so much money for The Pyjama Foundation.”
