ITS’ Pink Oc­to­ber events

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Through­out last month, the In­sti­tute of Tourism Stud­ies held dif­fer­ent fund-rais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for breast can­cer aware­ness month.

The ITS teach­ing restau­rants took on a dif­fer­ent at­mos­phere for Pink Oc­to­ber, where pa­trons were pro­vided with a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence for this spe­cial cause. Dur­ing this month, bar lec­tur­ers and stu­dents at the ITS teach­ing restau­rants cre­ated spe­cial pink drinks, with a por­tion of the pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards this great cause. ITS pas­try lec­tur­ers and stu­dents were busy bak­ing cup­cakes with a pink Oc­to­ber theme to be sold in their restau­rants, to ITS staff and stu­dents and to cater to or­ders from dif­fer­ent or­gan­i­sa­tions. All pro­ceeds will go to­wards this great cause.

ITS had the hon­our to host Mrs Michelle Mus­cat on Fri­day, 20 Oc­to­ber, where she was greeted by both stu­dents and staff members. She was then es­corted to The Pem­broke Suite, which is one of the In­sti­tute’s teach­ing restau­rants, where she dined with the chief of staff from the Min­istry for Tourism, ITS Board members, CEO and di­rec­tors. This pro­vided the ITS stu­dents with a unique op­por­tu­nity to host th­ese spe­cial guests.

ITS CEO, Pierre Fenech said: “It was an hon­our host­ing Mrs Mus­cat in one of our teach­ing restau­rants and I would like to pub­licly thank and praise all lec­tur­ers and stu­dents who in some way or other gave their in­put for this im­por­tant month. As part of the ITS strat­egy, it is not only im­por­tant that skills are thought to our stu­dents, but also mak­ing sure that an eth­i­cal way of thought is passed on. With the Pink Oc­to­ber ini­tia­tive and oth­ers like it, stu­dents are thought to think of oth­ers, es­pe­cially those in need.”

The In­sti­tute of Tourism Stud­ies was also present at the Ham­run Choco­late Fes­ti­val 2017, where lec­turer Steve D’Anas­tasi cre­ated a choco­late cen­tre piece and ITS also sold Pink Oc­to­ber cup­cakes upon a do­na­tion, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards the Marigold Foun­da­tion for Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month.
