Hilton Orlando has dedicated the month of October to bringing “awareness” back into Breast Cancer Awareness Month through Pinktober. Our Blue Energy Community Relations committee has put together a month long list of activities, events, and fundraisers for our team to take part in. Proceeds from this month’s fundraisers will benefit two of our partners – Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build 2013 and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build challenges women to devote at least one day to eliminate poverty housing. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is the world’s largest network of breast cancer survivors and activists – fighting to cure breast cancer at every stage. Our efforts with both groups begin in 2010 and each year it has become our goal to increase awareness!
Our list of events for Pinktober:
Pink Breakfast – October 5th & 19th
Pink Treat Smoothies – October 10th
Got Pink Day (Wear Pink and Pose)- October 19th
Scoops of Hope (Chilly Ice Cream Treats) – October 23rd
Pink Boot Camp (Give Breast Cancer the Boot) – October 25th
So far, our proceeds from both the pink breakfast and pink smoothies have yielded $527! Follow our progress through the end of the month…
