PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to take preventative measures to detect the disease, which can sometimes save lives.
On Friday, November 1st, Pandora St. Maarten hosted their fifth annual PARTY FOR PINK with the Positive Foundation and celebrated their store’s tenth anniversary. It was a beautiful evening, dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and the Pandora Store’s latest must-haves of the season including its new Pandora Me Collection, new additions to the Pandora Rose™ Collection and the launch of the Holiday Collection.
In honor of Pink October, valued customers sipped pink drinks and enjoyed light bites as they fell in love with the beauty of Pandora jewelry at the store in Philipsburg. A special Pandora umbrella was given with a qualifying purchase and a raffle was held for beautiful pink Pandora jewelry. A portion of event sales was graciously donated to the Positive Foundation.
Pandora is a brand that empowers woman and helps them express their individuality. The support that the Positive Foundation embraces is something that goes hand-in-hand with Pandora’s philosophy. Over the last 5 years, The Pandora Store in Philipsburg has held events in cooperation with the Positive Foundation.
Shelly Alphonso, President of the Positive Foundation, dedicated her time in making the Pandora Team and their clients prepared in understanding the importance of the awareness of breast cancer – the causes, cures, prevention, and how best to live one’s life with positive energy. “With the guidance and information we work hard to provide, we hope to be able to make a positive change in women’s lives. We believe in the change that an encouraging attitude can make in the battle against the breast,” explained Shelly. The Positive Foundation is a non-profit organization in St. Maarten that has been in existence for 21 years now. Their mission is to save lives by continuing their breast cancer related initiatives, like free clinical breast examination (CBE), run/walk challenges and community education.
“We are pleased to care for our community and through events like this, we contribute to furthering the goals of the Positive Foundation – all while empowering women to express themselves with Pandora. We look forward to working together for years to come to grow the event and bring further awareness to fight against breast cancer” said Lavina Nandwani from Pandora St. Maarten.
