Pink Drive Racemeeting, Friday, 28th October
When you’re feeling in the pink you’re having fun and at Greyville Racecourse on Friday evening, 28 October 2016, you can have heaps of fun and support the PinkDrive campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer and support the sufferers of the illness in South Africa.
PinkDrive and Gold Circle are again joining forces at the popular TGiF! Friday night race meeting to raise funds for the critical fight against the rampant illness that is killing women throughout the world.
The usual Friday night entertainment at this special meeting will be ramped up considerably to cater for the whole family with a host of entertainment performances throughout the evening while spot prizes can be won by those who embrace the occasion and dress up in pink.
PinkDrive is the country’s best-loved breast cancer community carer, a non-profit company powering South Africa’s only mobile Women’s Health Mammography and Gynaecology units that promote the message that “Early Detection Saves Lives”. All PinkDrive units travel to semi-urban and urban areas around the country with the aim of enabling all medically uninsured free access to its services.
These services include free education on women’s health, free mammograms, free pap smears, free clinical examination and instruction on how to do breast self-examination.
A number of sponsors have thrown their weight behind the PinkDrive charity meeting and Gold Circle Marketing Executive Graeme Hawkins has thanked Cape Thoroughbred Sales, Drakenstein Stud, Hollywoodbets, Investec, Jonsson Workwear, Varsfontein Stud and World Sports Betting for their support.
The CEO and founder of PinkDrive, Noelene Kotschan, said the organisation was humbled to be part of the Gold Circle Charity event and always “stand amazed when companies, like Gold Circle, take hands with us and contribute to our cause.”
So on Friday, October 28, even if you’re feeling a little blue, dress up in pink and join in the fun at Greyville – it will turn your blues to a brighter shade of pink knowing your support can save the life of someone you don’t even know.
