In May, all around New Zealand, individuals and businesses get involved in Pink Ribbon Breakfasts. This is the major fund raising opportunity for the N.Z. Breast Cancer Foundation. Breast cancer is an unfortunate fact of life for many woman but it is not only woman who are affected. A lot of men stand beside their wives, lovers, mothers, sisters, friends and share the fear and trepidation that comes with a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Even the discovery of a lump on a loved ones breast can cause great anxiety, as I can attest from personal experience. Luckily it was nothing serious but the process was enough to give me an understanding of what is is like to wait for the results of tests, the sleepless nights, the what ifs.
Here at Jester House, this is the 5th year we have been supporting this worthy cause, last year raising over $1000. This year we are having our Pink Ribbon weekend on the Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. Get a group of friends together, get your pink gear on and make a booking for breakfast, or lunch to show your support for this very worthwhile charity, and it is a great way to celebrate life.
Contact us on 03 5266742 or book online www.jesterhouse.co.nz/the-menu . Remember this is not just about woman.
May is the month for Mothers. Firstly, Mothers Day on the 10th and then throughout the rest of the month all sorts of different groups holding Pink Ribbon Breakfasts to raise funds for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
This year will be our fourth Pink Ribbon Weekend. The first year we just held it on the Sunday for breakfast but now we have extended it to run on Saturday and Sunday all day so we can raise a serious donation for the NZBCF.
A special Pink Ribbon menu runs alongside our usual menu and 15% of all sales from the special menu go into the donation pot. We are also running a raffle with 4 prize draws and for a gold coin donation you can take a pink ribbon and tie it to the White Tree of Remembrance on the terrace. For extra fun there is a Guess the Number of Spots game and Pink Lady apples for all guests.
It is a lovely weekend to come for breakfast, lunch or morning/afternoon tea and really do some good at the same time.There are not many families in NZ that haven’t been affected by cancer in some form or other and this is one way we can help in the ongoing challenge of finding ways to mitigate it.
So gather your girlfriends, put on your pink and enjoy some time out over breakfast or lunch this weekend ( book a table at jesterhouse.co.nz/contact ) while helping the NZBCF to help those fighting this sinister disease.
We look forward to pinking up your weekend.
