“As a partner of Pink Polo, we aim to provide awareness of optimal and aesthetic healing using some of the most advanced biotechnology for breast cancer patients who have had mastectomy surgery. Furthermore, our range of cosmeceutical products contain safe and gentle ingredients suitable for use for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, specifically to assist with skin conditions associated with the side effects of cancer treatments,” said Dr Judey, Biomedical Scientist and CEO of Biomedical Emporium. 

Guests can look forward to a day in the picturesque winelands filled with all things pink and polo-inspired. The event pays tribute to survivors of breast cancer and serves as a platform to raise awareness for a disease that is most prevalent in women, but also affects a high number of men.

In terms of fashion, Luxury brand, ElricoZarr by Elrico Bellingan, will adorn the female MC, Pink Polo Legacy Guests and models in the bespoke fashion show as official Fashion Partner. Argentinian luxury polo attire brand, La Martina, will ensure the male MC and models are the epitome of style for a day at the polo as Polo Fashion Partner.
