The prestigious Cintron Pink Polo returns for its eighth consecutive celebration to bring special emphasis to Breast Cancer Awareness.
The 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 on Saturday, 4 November 2017. 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 and assist women throughout South Africa who have been affected by the disease. 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.
Pink Drive, 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 bravely face 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, captained by Springbok players Tom de Bruin and Leroux Hendriks respectively, in a bid to win the coveted Cintron Pink Polo trophy.
Families can enjoy the Pink Food Truck Fair area with a selection of artisanal drinks, gourmet food and sweet delicacies on blankets and chairs in the summer sun. Polo Pavilion tickets offer you front-row seats to the spectacular fashion show, pop-up store delights and unique food and drink services in the spacious lounge area, while keeping an eye on the excitement taking place on the luscious polo greens.
VIP’s can look forward to a specialised butler service in an opulent setting with delectable canapés and premium cocktails curated by Campari and Cintron, rubbing shoulders and shaking hands with A-list celebrities, while appreciating the views of the majestic surroundings. Private VIP lounges are available for groups of 20 guests or more and allow for a day out in the picturesque winelands with friends or colleagues, celebrating in the Valley of Life. Vibrant hues of fresh pink, red, navy and silver with touches of textured fabrics and patterns are the inspiration for the dress code and décor. Renowned designer, Casper Bosman, will be conducting a sensational fashion show and dressing the female duo Master of Ceremonies Mishka Patel and Sechaba G in his stylish creations on this powerful platform.
This year’s official partners (Vodacom, BMW Paarlberg, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Veuve Clicquot Rosé, Sisley, Tosca, Sterns, American Swiss, Sport 24hrs and Taxi’s) will help the event continue to be a powerful conduit through which attendees are introduced to the Sport of Kings in an exclusive, luxurious setting while lending a voice to the fight against breast cancer.
