Pink Lady® apples will host their 14th annual Pink Lady® Crafts for Cancer event on Saturday, 7 October 2023 at Simondium’s Country Lodge.
Every year this event is held to raise funds for the Tygerberg Hospital Breast Clinic Fund.
Being diagnosed with breast cancer and plucking up the courage to fight the disease is one thing in itself, but imagine not being able to go for your treatment because you do not have the funds to cover transportation to and from the clinic. This is the reality for many women who are diagnosed with breast cancer at the Tygerberg Hospital Breast Clinic. The fund assists these women with transport money so that they can receive their much-needed treatment regularly.
“From humble beginnings, in 2010 with 25 ladies we now host over 100 ladies at our annual Crafts for Cancer Day in October. The continued support from ladies throughout the Western Cape over the years has been phenomenal. The enthusiasm and passion each and every lady shows for the fund and the event is awe-inspiring,” states Pink Lady® Crafts for Cancer on their website.
This year, guests at the Pink Lady® Crafts for Cancer event will be treated to a lovely high tea experience, including a Carmien tea and chocolate pairing and a food demonstration from acclaimed food consultant, cookbook author, and radio and television personality Heleen Meyer. Pink Lady® also partnered with Pick n Pay, who will have a special Pink Lady® apple bag for the month of September and October where R1 from every bag sold will be donated to the Fund.
“There is a saying that goes, Each one of us can make a difference but together we make change! The wonderful women that attend our event are helping women that desperately need it. I am so proud! Thank you for making change!” says Liza Matthews, marketing manager at Pink Lady®.
