#CULTURE: Polo With A Purpose – The 8th Annual Cintron Pink Polo – Val De Vie Estate

November 4th, 2017 sees the 8th Annual Cintron Pink Polo take flight at the prestigious greens of Val De Vie Estate in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley. As one of South Africa’s acclaimed events on the social- and polo calendar and the only Polo With A Purpose, the Cintron Pink Polo will once again put the spotlight on Breast Cancer Awareness.

The event celebrates survivors of breast cancer and their inspirational stories of hope, healing and triumph. As someone who has a family member who too is a survivor of breast cancer, this cause and event has a special place in my heart. Funds raised on the day are donated to create awareness of symptoms for early detection as well as assisting women affected by the disease, throughout South Africa.

“We are proud to continue our association with this event which not only allows guests to experience world class 14-goal polo with all the embellishments, but also creates awareness and empowers women who are bravely facing all the challenges of treatment. Get ready for a wonderful event that combines luxury, lifestyle and polo which supports a worthy cause all while leaving an indelible mark in South Africa,” said Chelsea Brehm, Director of Marketing, from Cintron World.

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. PinkDrive, 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 are courageously facing the challenging aspects of chemotherapy.

The world class event will showcase a fusion of glamour, bespoke fashion and enthralling polo in authentic luxurious African style. Vibrant hues of fresh pink, red, navy and silver with touches of textured fabrics and patterns are inspiration behind the decor and dress code. Renowned designer, Casper Bosman, will be conducting a sensational fashion show and dressing the female duo Master of Ceremonies – Sechaba G and Mishka Patel – in his stylish creations on this powerful platform.

Since inception in 2010, the event has become a powerful conduit through which attendees are introduced to the Sport of Kings in an exclusive, opulent setting whilst lending a voice to the fight against breast cancer. Tickets are limited and available from Computicket, from R100 per person:
