Now in its fifth year, Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo is proud to announce Whirlpool as the official associate partner of this year’s prestigious event.

Presented by Edith Venter Promotions, the annual event coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is aimed at educating the public about breast cancer and raising money for Reach for Recovery and the Ditto Project.

CEO of the Edith Venter Promotions, Edith Venter, says Playing for Pink is delighted to have the support of Whirlpool. “This is the third year Whirlpool has partnered with us. The company’s ongoing commitment to the event has ensured it continues to be a great success.”

Whirlpool Marketing Director, Lorraine de Graaff, says Whirlpool is proud to be associated with the polo event. “Each year, the event is bigger and better than the previous year, raising increasingly more money to help women with breast cancer. We hope this trend continues and that even more money is raised this year.”

Last year, the event raised R150 000 for Reach for Recovery’s Ditto Project, a breast prosthesis initiative aimed at providing breast prostheses to women from underprivileged areas.

De Graaff says survivors and their families need support from communities and society, which is why organisations such as Reach for Recovery are so important and worthy of support. “Just like Reach for Recovery, as a brand we provide products that make life easier for people so that they can spend more time doing the important things, such as enjoying the company of family and friends.”

An average of 115 000 South Africans are diagnosed with cancer each year. As the number of cancer survivors continues to grow, Whirlpool understands that no two stories are identical, but surviving cancer comes with its own emotional, physical, social and financial challenges – This is why the collaboration of organisations such as Playing for Pink, Whirlpool and Reach for Recovery can play such an important role.

The event promises to be a day of glamour and goodwill that will touch, and make a difference, in the lives of many. Tickets are available from R1000 per ticket to the public suite. Book your entrance to this truly prestigious occasion. Hospitality packages are also available and can be secured by contacting Edith Venter Promotions on 011 783 5887.
