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 detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
On Friday, October 30th, PANDORA St. Maarten hosted their second annual PARTY FOR PINK with the Positive Foundation. It was a lovely evening, dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and the launch of The PANDORA Store’s newest editions to its PANDORA Rose™ Collection, Autumn Collection and a first glimpse of the Holiday 2015 Collection – just released on Oct. 29th!
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 portion of event sales was graciously donated to the Positive Foundation. Additionally, attendees had the opportunity to have a screening and consultation with Dr. Grace Spencer. Positive Foundation heads Dilys Alphonso and Shelly Alphonso cut a cake in honor of all those who are battling breast cancer, which their foundation graciously supports.
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 2 years, The Pandora Store in Philipsburg has held events in cooperation with the Positive Foundation.
Dilys Alphonso, Vice-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. “We believe in the change that a positive attitude can make in life,” explained Dilys. The Positive Foundation is a non-profit organization in St. Maarten that has been in existence for 17 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.
“It is always important to give back to the community. With events like this, we contribute to furthering the goals of the Positive Foundation while empowering women with PANDORA. We look forward to working together for years to come,” said Lavina Nandwani from PANDORA St. Maarten.
