Macau will become a lot more pink during October to raise awareness to breast cancer. Following the same tradition as last year, Conrad Macao will host a pink inspired charity lunch on the 15th of October as a campaign that is held to raise funds for the Hong Kong Cancer Fund’s PINK Revolution movement. “Last year we raised over 170,000 dollars for the charity, this year we are hoping to double it”, said Bede Barry to Magazine&More. For this mission to be accomplished successfully, the General Manager of Conrad Macao is happy to say that “we’ve got a lot of retailers on board”, hoping to go from 120 people to 250 this year.
Guests attending the lunch, which will include a three-course pink themed menu and two glasses of sparkling wine for MOP480 per person and a MOP100 donation to the charity, will have the opportunity to win several raffle prizes. A pink sapphire necklace with white diamonds valued at MOP8,000, a limited edition Notte Intima Wirebag from Anteprima valued at HKD7,190 and a pink scarf designed by Diane von Furstenberg are some of the most fashionable prizes, but the list also includes some luxury international hotel getaways to the Maldives, New York, London, among others.
In addition each guest will also receive a gift bag valued at MOP3,000 which includes special offers and shopping vouchers from Ralph Lauren, Sabon Body & Bath, Wolford, Shanghai Tang, Bodhi Spa, ARTĒ Madrid, iiJin tote bag, Macau Tatler magazine and a limited edition silver elephant bottle opener with pink ribbon from Georg Jenson jewelers. “We are trying to get a really holistic approach to the campaign that it’s interesting to everyone, on the travel side of things and on the retail side of things. All the proceeds from the tickets go towards the donation. It’s a very high profile charity”, noted Bede Barry.
The hotel’s “PINK Inspired 2015” campaign will turn the hotel a passionate pink, along with all the floral arrangements and decorations inside. “PINK Fridays” will involve staff and management adding a dapper dash of pink to their uniforms, turning their regular e-mails and handwritten guest cards pink as well. Same as before, the pink bear will be icon for this campaign together with a duck.
“We believe it will become an event on the social calendar of Macau because it is very worthwhile charity. It’s not a difficult charity, you don’t have to walk 25 miles, go without food or shave your head (laughs). I think it’s a very worthwhile cause”, said Bede Barry
為喚醒公眾對乳癌的關注及為籌集研究經費出一分力，澳門十月份將會以一種獨特的粉紅姿態示人。澳門金沙城中心康萊德酒店宣佈今年將會繼承去年的傳統，於10月15日舉辦‘粉紅午宴’，藉此午宴以支持香港癌症基金會一年一度的「粉紅革命」活動。在接受 M&M 採訪時，康萊德酒店總經理Bede Barry 表示”去年我們的慈善籌款超過美金 $170,000，而今年我們的目標是翻一倍。” 為了達成這個目標，Bede Barry 十分開心的說道“我們已經有很多鑽石贊助商參與”， 希望今年贊助商人數能夠有大概 120-250 人。
