EAT DRINK PINK AT THE PENINSULA BANGKOK COMBINES GOURMET CUISINES AND COMPASSIONATE CARE TO SUPPORT PINK PARK VILLAGE DURING THE ANNUAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
The third Eat Drink Pink event in November presents the finest Thai and global gastronomy and drinks to support the world-leading Pink Park Village and the Queen Sirikit Centre for breast cancer.
The Peninsula Bangkok inspires guests once again to combine culinary excellence with compassion for the Peninsula in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. For the third year, The Peninsula Bangkok will host the Eat Drink Pink gastronomic showcase presenting an elite selection of restaurants and bars handpicked from across Bangkok. Eat Drink Pink brings together celebrated dining institutions, such as Eat Me, Nahm, Le Du, Err, Lenzi, Il Fumo, Bo.lan, Bunker and The Never-Ending Summer, to raise funds for the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer, Chulalongkorn Hospital.
Hosted on Monday 20 November, Eat Drink Pink will enable guests to enjoy signature dishes, drinks and snacks prepared by Bangkok’s top chefs, culinary experts and bartenders beside the riverfront. Combining fine cuisines and compassionate care is the shared objective of every participant. The second Eat Drink Pink event in October 2015 featured a charitable raffle with memorable prizes, including stays at The Peninsula hotels worldwide, and raised more than THB 1,200,000 for the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer.
As well as enjoying the Eat Drink Pink culinary gala, guests and local residents can help support Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer. Kind-hearted donors who pledge THB 350,000 towards the development of Pink Park Village and the purchase of advanced medical equipment for underprivileged patients will receive an exclusive half-day breast cancer check-up by Dr Kris Chatamra at Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer, Chulalongkorn Hospital. As a gesture of gratitude for the kindness of giving, The Peninsula Bangkok will offer 10 complimentary body treatments at The Peninsula Spa specially designed to enhance relax the body and becalm the mind.
Under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen, the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer provides breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for underprivileged breast cancer patients from across Thailand. Her Majesty has described the centre as “a sanctuary for women in Thailand”. The Peninsula Bangkok is a long-time supporter of the Queen Sirikit Centre and its world-leading Pink Park Village in Bangkok, which is the world’s first non-profit holistic care and diagnostic centre and offers a hospice and convalescence home and a day-care and activity centre for breast cancer patients.
Pink Park Village provides comprehensive cancer care by an experienced team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, pharmacists and nutritionists. It has invested in advanced imaging technologies, a cutting-edge laboratory and molecular tests that were previously beyond the resources of any single institution in Thailand. “Our vision for Pink Park Village is to be a place of hope and care, and a genuine ‘sanctuary for all women in need.’ We plan to establish it as an advanced diagnostic leader that will be a benchmark for the region,” says Dr Kris Chatamra, Director of the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer and Founder and Chairman of the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation.
In addition to supporting Pink Park Village, donations from the Peninsula in Pink campaigns have contributed to transforming the second floor of Chulalongkorn Hospital into a world-leading centre for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for underprivileged patients. The Centre uses 3D cone-beam computer tomography equipment, which is the first in the world, and the only breast cancer magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) dedicated for disadvantaged patients in Thailand. MRI scanning creates images from various angles of soft tissue parts of the body that are difficult to view using other imaging tests, and has improved the speed and accuracy of diagnosis for patients in need while removing the worry of high expenses.
Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women in Thailand, with one in 10 Thai women likely to face the challenge during her lifetime – but more than half of patients do not have access to adequate care. Many patients have had to face recovery or death from cancer in abject squalor. Often, these patients have been forced to stay in hospital beds because they simply have nowhere to go, thereby blocking new patients from being diagnosed and treated more quickly.
Eat Drink Pink is presented as part of The Peninsula Bangkok’s annual Peninsula in Pink campaign, which raises awareness and funds for local charities leading the fight against breast cancer. On 20 November 2017, guests at The Peninsula Bangkok can savour fine local and global cuisines at the Eat Drink Pink event, and enter a grand prize draw to win a stay at The Peninsula Beijing, The Peninsula Shanghai and The Peninsula New York. Guests can also support the charitable initiative by purchasing a special pink ribbon pin.
Tickets for the Eat Drink Pink 2017, hosted at The Peninsula Bangkok on Monday 20 November, are priced at THB 3,000 per person. All proceeds will be donated to the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer.
