School initiative added to Pink fundraising efforts


ORGANISERS and the committee of the much-anticipated 2020 Pink Ladies Brunch in Penang are introducing a brand-new community initiative this year -–School Pink Day.

Tiina Luckins, Susie Macmillan and Jennifer Sheppard said the initiative would see all Penang schools being invited to take part in the fun and educational Pink activity.

“Many schools have expressed their delight and interest in this movement and we are thrilled with the response so far, ” said the three organisers.

They said they were excited to be taking on the Pink legacy that founder Maggie Territ created 12 years ago.

Macmillan said it was a wonderful opportunity for the schoolchildren to contribute to the community.

The Pink Ladies Brunch this year will be held at the Eastern and Oriental Hotel on Oct 9.

It aims to raise as much funds as possible for Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital and Penang Hospice Society.

Luckins said Pink Ladies has collectively chaired many successful fundraising, educational and wellness events in Penang and overseas.

She, however, said this year’s event would be the most humbling experience to date as they were carrying on Territ’s legacy.

In keeping with this year’s Pump Up the Pink theme, Luckins, Macmillan and Sheppard together with the Pink Ladies committee are striving to produce a fabulous and fresh Pink Ladies Brunch.

VIP tables will be set up while a fashion parade by Doublewoot, Klein & Fine and Amee Philips will be held.

Other events planned include a silent auction of exciting items, services, and experiences plus a tombola and a raffle.

There are a few additions and surprises this year with music provided by DJ Carl Hinds while renowned author and speaker Natalie Turner will serve as master of ceremonies.

Body builder Steven Mark will be making an appearance as the celebrity highlight.

Pump Up the Pink themed fitness sessions with Gosia Cano at Fierce Fitness in Tanjung Tokong will also be held and Pump Up The Pink T-shirts will be available for sale.

The organisers acknowledged that the Covid-19 pandemic

presented unique challenges in the planning and execution of the event.

They have limited attendance to 180 persons in accordance with the standard operating procedures.

Sheppard noted that corporate sponsorship and monetary donations are still essential for the Pink Ladies to meet their fundraising goals.

“More than ever, our beneficiaries need all of our support, ” she emphasised.

Those who wish to donate, help or want your school to be involved, contact the Pink Ladies team at penangpinkladies@gmail.com.
