Enjoy breakfast for a good cause
Thousands of New Zealand individuals, organisations and businesses are championing the cause for breast cancer this May in support of the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast annual fundraising campaign.
As hosts of a Pink Ribbon Breakfast, the funds they raise directly support the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation’s work in funding vital breast cancer research for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer in New Zealand.
During the month of May, members of the public, workplaces and hospitality providers are encouraged to host Pink Ribbon-themed events, inviting friends, family, employees, customers and supporters to help raise funds. The campaign also gives an opportunity to raise awareness of the disease, encourage early detection and motivate women to be proactive in their health by having regular mammograms.
Fronting this year’s campaign is celebrity cook Chelsea Winter, who is encouraging New Zealanders to host their own Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
Chelsea, with her enthusiasm for the home cook and entertaining, supports the NZBCF’s goals and is lending her influence to help back the campaign.
“Getting friends and family together over ameal is what we Kiwis do well, and a perfect opportunity to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research. I’m very proud to support the Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign and encourage everyone to get together this May and join in the fun,” says Chelsea.
