Cala­matta Cuschieri Group Goes Pink for Oc­to­ber

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Cala­matta Cuschieri Group is once again join­ing the Pink Oc­to­ber move­ment in the fight against breast can­cer. Through­out the month of Oc­to­ber, the com­pany will be ar­rang­ing a num­ber of fund rais­ing events to help this cause. All funds raised will be do­nated to Ac­tion for Breast Can­cer & the Marigold Foun­da­tion.

Alan Cuschieri, Group Co-CEO, com­mented on the Pink Oc­to­ber move­ment, “Cala­matta Cuschieri is com­mit­ted to give back to the com­mu­nity, and help join in the bat­tle against one of the worst ill­nesses we face. As the group con­tin­ues to grow, we con­tinue to in­crease our ef­forts to im­prove peo­ple’s lives through our con­tri­bu­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Breast can­cer is the most com­mon form of can­cer glob­ally, and one of the lead­ing causes of can­cer re­lated deaths in women over the age of 30 in Malta; how­ever, it is also preva­lent in men. If breast can­cer is de­tected early enough, it can be suc­cess­fully treated. By rais­ing aware­ness, the Pink Oc­to­ber move­ment hopes to en­cour­age more women to get more fre­quent screen­ing, en­hanc­ing their chance at suc­cess­ful treat­ment.

This year Cala­matta Cuschieri Group’s events range from Dress-Down Fri­day’s and a raf­fle, to a heated Bake-Off and ex­cit­ing team com­pe­ti­tions, in which staff par­tic­i­pate and do­na­tions will be col­lected. Em­ploy­ees are en­cour­aged to take part in the Pink Oc­to­ber ini­tia­tive by do­nat­ing €10 and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the events.

The Pink Oc­to­ber raf­fle has been made pos­si­ble thanks to gen­er­ous do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity and staff. Cala­matta Cuschieri wishes to thank every­one who has do­nated prizes to the raf­fle. Up for grabs are a va­ri­ety of treat­ments at Mar­ion Mizzi Well­be­ing, din­ners at The Chop House & Rokna, vouch­ers for An­to­nio’s Bar­bers Shop, a per­sonal train­ing ses­sion with Brian Zam­mit, a se­lec­tion of Lindt good­ies from De­majo Group of Com­pa­nies, cinema tickets cour­tesy of Em­bassy Cinema, Avon goodie bags pro­vided by Avon, a mag­num bot­tle of red wine cour­tesy of Ate­lier Michael Tabone, Car­avag­gio 3 bot­tle gift pack cour­tesy of Marso­vin, and a se­lec­tion of other gifts from mem­bers of staff.

In ad­di­tion to Pink Oc­to­ber, Cala­matta Cuschieri Group is tak­ing part in, and ar­rang­ing, a wide num­ber of other events through­out the year, all for de­serv­ing causes such as this one. In re­cent years, the com­pany set up the CC Can­cer Foun­da­tion, and has or­gan­ised a se­ries of an­nual events that have been well at­tended, such as the Walk for Can­cer, Blood Do­na­tion Drive, In­vest­ing in Na­ture, as well as col­lab­o­ra­tions with ALS Malta.
