A BEVY of beautiful girls in bikinis got their hands dirty for a good cause.

Yandina-based Dolle Models manager Rachael Ann organised the carwash fundraiser for breast cancer at Kunda Park on Saturday and raised $435 in three hours.

"Me and all my girls and a lot of people we know have lost people to breast cancer or know people fighting hard against the disease," Miss Ann said.

"At the minute, it's Pinktober, so why not help out?"

Dolle Models held a similar event last year and raised $500 for the Give Me Five for Kids charity.

"We aim to hold a fundraiser every two months, that's our goal," Miss Ann said.

"We have a list of charities we want to help out."

The girls are holding a Casino Night at the Sands Tavern on October 27 to raise money to help set up an orphanage in Cambodia.

Nambour couple Craig and Sara Drummond plan to open the orphanage for children who have been abused by the sex trade.
