HAPPY HOLIDAYS 2013 FROM US ALL!
As we closely approach Christmas and the New Year 2014, Pink Ribbon Monaco would like to thank everyone who helped make our 3rd year such a resounding success. In 2014, we have organized a few more unique and exciting events, to get people talking about breast cancer, thus raising awareness to prevention and early detection methods.
We will start 2014 off with a bang, launching our first ever Poker for Pink tournament in the Sun Casino, in partnership with Monte-Carlo SBM, Sun Casino and world leader in online poker, Poker Stars.
In March, we will hold our 3rd Pink Ribbon Monaco Walk. Last year, close to 350 participants showed up, despite the rainy spring weather. Dressed in pink, some wore fantastic costumes, feather boas and even pink fairy wings, some more soberly but still in pink. Everyone had in common great enthusiasm and deep emotion, as lost loved ones lives were honoured and those who fought and won the battle were celebrated. It was a moving and lively celebration, were we were all as one, walking for a cause that concerns both men and women, and thanks to you all, it was a resounding success. This year a bigger and better circuit promises even more fun!
In August, in partnership with the Centre Nautique de Cap d’Ail, we will host our 1st Paddle For Pink; a day of fun in the sun and learning, with so many surprises, you will have to stay tuned to find out more!
Then, in October 2014, we will repeat our annual lighting event. Last October, we created a buzz by lighting Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo and the Casino of Monte-Carlo in pink, raising awareness to breast cancer screening methods. M. Valeri, Government Minister for Social Affairs and Health in Monaco honoured us by announcing the approval and creation of the new Breast Cancer Screening Centre at the Centre Hospitalier Princess Grace, opening in 2014.
Pink Ribbon Monaco would like to wish you all the very Merriest Christmas and a Happy New Year. Celebrate your loved ones, and enjoy these precious moments together….
And then, get ready for February Poker, and the Walk in March! Registrations are already open!!! It will be PINK-TASTIC!
