Acclaimed as one of South Africa’s most reputable events on the Western Cape’s social- and polo calendar, the prestigious Cintron Pink Polo returns for its 8th consecutive celebration that brings special emphasis to Breast Cancer Awareness on Saturday 4 November 2017. Unmatched by any other, this highly commended Polo with a Purpose pursuit will be hosted on South Africa’s leading wine- and polo domain; the immaculate Val de Vie Estate.
“Cintron World is proud to announce our sustained partnership as Headline Sponsor for the next five years of this illustrious event. We look forward to welcoming survivors and guests from all walks of life to celebrate miracles and join us by continuing to create awareness and empower women and men who are bravely facing the challenges of treatment on a daily basis. Cintron Pink Polo enthusiasts can look forward to another world class experience this year, that goes hand-in hand with exquisite fashion, luxurious décor, exciting entertainment and of course the 14-high goal Polo with a Purpose to support this dignitary cause,” said Chelsea Brehm, Director of Marketing, from Cintron World.
The event celebrates survivors of breast cancer and their inspirational stories of hope, healing and triumph. Funds raised on the day are donated to create awareness of symptoms for early detection as well as assisting women affected by the disease, throughout South Africa.
The 2017 event supports the St. Stephen Oncology Centre & Sub-Acute Hospital located in Paarl, where vital and convenient cancer care is provided to patients in the Valley. PinkDrive, powering South Africa’s first mobile mammography and educational unit through South Africa, will also receive assistance for the vital services they render. Blossom Box Boutique, an initiative birthed during 2016 between Cintron Pink Polo and Fynbos Valley Gift Boxes, will have beautiful handcrafted wooden boxes on offer for guests who may willingly participate by indicating how they will use the box to support women who are bravely facing the challenging aspects of chemotherapy.
The inaugural world class event will showcase a fusion of glamour, bespoke fashion and enthralling polo in authentic luxurious African style. Guests will be entertained with a high-goal polo match between team sponsors Cintron and Vodacom, respectively captained by Springbok players Tom de Bruin and Leroux Hendriks in a bid to win the coveted Cintron Pink Polo trophy.
