PINKTOBER has taken off in a big way this year, with organisations, families and groups of friends not wasting any time in coming up with ways to highlight breast cancer in Fiji through various initiatives.
Tanoa Hotel Group has not wasted any time in signing a memorandum of understanding with the Fiji Cancer Society for three years.
The Pinktober Launch will be held today, 9 October 2014 at the Tanoa Plaza Hotel. A $10,000 cheque will be handed over to the Fiji Cancer Society from the Tanoa Hotel Group to support its cancer awareness and care initiatives. The cheque, which was a gift made by Tanoa Hotel Group chairman Yanktesh Permal (YP) Reddy, also serves as the group's corporate social responsibility initiative as well as a personal passion of Mr Reddy and his family.
As part of their Pinktober activities, the Tanoa Plaza is hosting cancer patients as well as children suffering from life-threatening illnesses to a lunch at 12pm at the hotel today.
The Tanoa Group has also introduced a brand new cocktail — and a pink one at that. The cocktail, known as the "Pinktober Cosmo", will be sold at the five Fiji Tanoa Hotels for $10 each, with all proceeds going to the Fiji Cancer Society.
