If you have driven past the InterContinental at Doral Miami, then you noticed the pink lighting in front of the hotel. They have gone pink to emphasize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to kick off the hotel’s fund-raising campaign benefiting Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale for the 8th consecutive year.
At this year’s Annual Pink Lighting Ceremony, City of Doral Mayor, Juan Carlos Bermudez and number one, ranked radio personality, Betzy Vazquez, La Gatitia, of El Nuevo Zol 106.7 were on hand to “flip” the switch.
As in previous years, 100 percent of the monies raised during the 2018 campaign will benefit Susan G. Komen® Miami/ Ft. Lauderdale to help provide treatment in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe Counties, screening mammograms, or help patients in need with the cost to pay for diagnostic exams or chemotherapy treatment, as well as provide financial assistance.
On October 27, the hotel will host the Pop of Pink Fashion Exhibition from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $25.00 in advance and $40.00 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the hotel or through Eventbrite. Tickets to the Pop of Pink Fashion Exhibition can be purchased at https://tinyurl.com/ICDoralPOP2018.
Pop of Pink will be in partnership with the Fashion Institute of Miami Dade College, White’s Art Gallery, Westland Mall, and Palmetto Hospital. Students of the Fashion Institute will curate the fashion, which will be exhibited by local SGK breast cancer survivors at the Pop of Pink Fashion Exhibition. Artists of White’s Art Gallery will also paint jeans and jean jackets for the cause.
“We are proud to be doing our part with our annual campaign and be able to help meet the most critical needs in the community through Susan G. Komen Miami/ Ft. Lauderdale,” said Randal Pasut, General Manager of InterContinental at Doral Miami.
