The Peninsula in Pink Campaign

The Peninsula in Pink Campaign

The Peninsula Manila is again thinking pink for a purpose this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer among women and the second-most common cancer in the world today, accounting for one in 10 of all new cancers diagnosed worldwide, and nearly one in four female cancer cases. With these statistics in mind, The Peninsula Hotels decided to harness its resources and create the Peninsula In Pink Charitable Initiative.

Launched in Hong Kong in 2010, Peninsula in Pink is an annual event at all the Peninsula hotels in Asia, North America and Europe. Each hotel shows its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by creating pink-inspired afternoon teas, cocktails, dining and spa promotions and special events, with part of the proceeds donated to a local breast cancer organization.

In keeping with the global commitment to support innovative art, The Peninsula Manila will host an exhibition of artwork at The Lobby from September 15 to October by acclaimed Filipino artists BenCab, Plet Bolipata, Elmer Borlongan, Impy Pilapil and Ramon Orlina; industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue; and select pieces from the collections of some of the finest contemporary Filipino galleries such as Artinformal, Avellana Art Gallery, Galleria Duemila, Silverlens, The Drawing Room and Tin–aw. All the pieces will be auctioned on October 1 by official auction partner Christie’s, with the proceeds donated to the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Inc which is rehabilitating the Breast Care Center of East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City.

The Art of Pink builds on the partnerships The Peninsula Manila has created with leading Filipino artists and galleries to provide guests and the public with privileged access to art by established masters and emerging artists.

Benedicto Reyes Cabrera or BenCab, as he is more popularly known is widely hailed as a master of contemporary Philippine art. In 2006, he was conferred the Order of National Artist for Visual Arts by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Malacanang Palace.

Plet Bolipata is a sculptor, artist and designer whose cheeky sense of humor allows her to overlap and intersect with different forms of visual arts.

Elmer Borlongan is one of the most prominent contemporary Filipino painters best known for his distinctive use of figurative expressionism. He is a recipient of the Cultural Center of the Philippines‘ Thirteen Artist Awards in 1994, and his works have since become some of the most widely exhibited and sought after at auctions among Southeast Asian artists.

Impy Pilapil is one of the Philippine’s foremost sculptors. Preferring to use the mediums of glass, stone and metal – and often together – her works have a transcendental quality fusing the elements of sky, water, wind and oceanic solitude.

Kenneth Cobonpue is a multi-awarded industrial designer and manufacturer known for integrating locally sourced materials with innovative, hand-made production processes. Cobonpue’s brand is known around the world for its unique designs and roster of clientele that include Hollywood celebrities like Brad Pitt and members of royalty. In 2007, TIME magazine called him “rattan’s first virtuoso.”

Ramon Orlina is a multi-awarded glass sculptor who explores forms though glass cullets or crystal blocks, exploiting their translucent quality and smooth finish produced from months of reshaping and grinding.

Artinformal (representing Eugenia Alcaide), Avellana Art Gallery (representing Francis “Kiko” Arnaez), Galleria Duemila (representing Duddley Diaz), Silverlens (representing Bernardo Pacquing), The Drawing Room (representing Gaston Damag) and Tin–aw (representing Brenda Fajardo and Julie Lluch) are among the finest contemporary Philippine art galleries who are riding a wave of interest in art sweeping through Southeast Asia.

In Southeast Asia, the Philippines has the highest incidence of breast cancer,” says The Peninsula Manila General Manager, Ms Sonja Vodusek. “One in every 13 Filipinos falls victim to it and as a woman, a sister, a daughter and the general manager of an institution that has worked for nearly 40 years with various local organizations to help make a difference in the lives of Filipino people, I believe very strongly in the fight against this terrible disease.”

This is the impetus behind The Peninsula Manila’s continuing partnership with the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Inc as the charity of choice for its Art of Pink fundraising efforts. The hotel is also partnering with The Estée Lauder Companies, whose Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign is devoted to defeating breast cancer through education and medical research, and Pink for Life Foundation Inc, a non-profit non-stock charitable foundation whose mission is to provide deeply discounted chemotherapy treatment for patients with Stage 1 to 2 breast cancer.

Every October, The Peninsula Manila launches its Peninsula in Pink Campaign, an initiative to raise awareness and funds in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness

Every October, The Peninsula Manila launches its Peninsula in Pink Campaign, an initiative to raise awareness and funds in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness

At the conclusion of last year’s campaign, The Peninsula Manila raised P 5,900,000 – seed money that will be used to rehabilitate the Breast Care Center of the government-run East Avenue Medical Center. The center currently services 30-50 patients in space that can barely accommodate 20 individuals. The three-phased plan for the center will include enlarging the reception area, adding another wing as well as building a second floor, and purchasing 20 chemotherapy infusion chairs to supplement the two La-Z Boy recliners that they have.

Pink is the preferred color at The Peninsula Manila every October, and to support The Art of Pink initiative, the fountain, main entrances and guardian door lions of the hotel will be artfully illuminated in pink each evening from October 1 to 31, 2015.

As always, an exclusive PENINSULA IN PINK RIBBON PIN has been designed to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Every Peninsula Manila staff member will wear this specially commissioned pink ribbon pin throughout October in support of this initiative. Pins are available for sale at a dedicated donation desk in The Lobby for P 250 nett, with a portion from each pin sold donated to the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Inc.

The Lobby’s offers a special The Art of Pink Peninsula Afternoon Tea, featuring rose-tinted sweets and savory treats.

The Peninsula Hotels in Asia, North America and Europe are again thinking pink for a purpose this October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Marking its fifth anniversary in 2015, the Peninsula In Pink Charitable Initiative is undergoing a creative makeover to become “The Art of Pink.” In keeping with The Peninsula’s global commitment to the arts, each hotel will exhibit specially commissioned pink-inspired artworks by acclaimed global artists, including internationally celebrated photographer Chen Man in Shanghai, renowned Chinese contemporary painter and installation artist Qin Feng in Beijing, Thailand’s best-known cartoonist Chiratorn Chirapravati in Bangkok, internationally recognized Peruvian artist Grimanesa Amorós in New York, French sculptor Nathalie Decoster in Paris, and prominent Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa in Chicago.

Highlights of The Art of Pink in 2015 also include pink-themed gala fundraising events featuring charitable auctions of the pink art masterpieces, plus special Peninsula dining and spa promotions and exclusive items donated by partner brands. Each Peninsula hotel will adopt its own creative theme for the event. Examples of giving back in a fun way include The Peninsula Bangkok teaming up with selected independent restaurants to present an evening of fine cocktails and cuisine in a pop-up format, and The Peninsula Hong Kong partnering with leading global auction house Christie’s for a first-of-its-kind gala and live auction of pink-themed luxury items.

A popular part of every Peninsula in Pink campaign is the Pink Afternoon Tea. This October, guests at The Lobby of each hotel will relish a creatively themed The Art of Pink Peninsula Afternoon Tea, featuring rose-tinted sweet and savory treats served on a tiered silver platter, and accompanied by rosé wines and 252767bubbles.

Guests at Peninsula hotels can also participate by purchasing the specially commissioned pink ribbon pin during October, together with enjoying the collection of pink-infused gourmet dining and spa experiences, with part of the proceeds donated to local breast cancer charities.

The creative theming of each Peninsula In Pink Campaign is designed to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer charities in the hotels’ local communities. In its first four years, the Peninsula in Pink campaign has raised over USD 500,000. A dedicated webpage, www.peninsula.com/pink, will be launched in October featuring information on all Art of Pink initiatives, including the campaign’s history, photographs and videos.

The funds raised by Peninsula in Pink help local organizations to provide improved breast cancer-care facilities and services to patients in need. Examples include The Peninsula Manila, which is supporting the construction of a new and improved Breast Care Center at the East Avenue Medical Center, and The Peninsula Chicago, which helps transport breast cancer patients to and from medical appointments in the hotel’s fleet of MINI Clubman cars.

Sexy Hair Cuts For A Cause With National Cut-A-Thon

More than 350 salons will band together in solidarity on Tuesday, October 22 for the second annual Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon, a marathon styling event organized by hair care brand Sexy Hair in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sexy Hair will donate 100% of the proceeds from each Cut-A-Thon appointment to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit organization that helps hundreds of thousands of women who are undergoing cancer cope with the devastating appearance-related side effects of treatment since the program began.

Founded in 1998, Sexy Hair has become a “must have” for leading Hollywood celebrities. Headquartered in Chatsworth, Calif., Sexy Hair distributes professional hair care products in more than 45 countries and 60,000 licensed salons across the U.S. Widely known for its “big red can,” Sexy Hair Concepts® LLC is one of the fastest growing beauty care companies that create hair products that do what they say and say what they promise. It is the #1 hairspray brand in the U.S. with one can sold every four seconds. In 2013, Sexy Hair continued to make history announcing global hair icon Marilyn Monroe as the brand’s ambassador, embodying the brand’s tagline “Styles Change. Sexy is Forever.”

The Look Good Feel Better program is a collaboration of the Personal Care Products Council Foundation, a charitable organization established by the Personal Care Products Council, the leading national trade association representing the global cosmetic and personal care products industry; the American Cancer Society, the nation’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to saving lives from cancer; and the Professional Beauty Association, a national organization of more than 25,000 cosmetologists, wig experts, aestheticians, makeup artists and nail technicians.

Last year, the first ever Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon raised more than $115,000 for Look Good Feel Better in just one day, thanks to the compassionate participation from salons across the United States. This year, salons and stylists will continue their commitment and encourage people everywhere to help Sexy Hair surpass last year’s sizable donation by making an appointment for a haircut on Tuesday, October 22. A percentage of proceeds from each haircut will benefit the cause.

Sexy Hair has been a partner of Look Good Feel Better since 2009, raising close to half of a million dollars for the cause in that time.  The second annual Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon reaffirms Sexy Hair’s relationship with Look Good Feel Better and its commitment to the fight against breast cancer, while spreading the brand’s mission to share “sexy” confidence with others by feeling and doing good. Throughout the year and into 2014, Sexy Hair will continue its dedication to cancer awareness with additional programs and new products.

After the widespread success of last year’s Cut-A-Thon, we continue to be extremely proud that our salons and stylists have come together yet again to pay it forward on October 22,” said Karl Heinz Pitsch, President and CEO of Sexy Hair.  “Unfortunately, too many families are touched by the effects of cancer in this country.  Sexy Hair is known for its creativity and celebration of individuality–we also value community and it is our hope to show just how sexy caring can be.”
