It was a celebration of all things rugby on Saturday as the Parkes Boars Rugby Club hosted its annual ladies day at Northparkes Oval.
But the big winner on the day was Can Assist, who is the recipient of the funds raised from the gathering and jersey auction that night.
The ladies jumpers were raffled off, with Saturday's fundraiser generating $9180.
One hundred per cent of the proceeds go to Parkes Can Assist.
The club has praised and thanked the "legends" at AWN Langlands Hanlon, particularly Geoff Rice and Cooper Byrnes, for all their work and support over the past couple of weekends with the jersey auctions at the Coachman Hotel Motel.
The clubhouse fundraiser jersey auction was held on July 2.
The club said everyone involved has had good time and more than $20,000 has been raised between the two auctions.
