Hirsch's Centurion and SACBW Celebrate Women's Month with Pink Tie Event

Posted last August 23, 2012, 4:55 pm in Events report article

Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important part of being a woman. Hirsch's Centurion together with the SACBW recently hosted a Pink Tie event at Hirsch's and the ladies who attended the event were invited to wear a pink tie on the day. "Taking a minute or two before the event started all the ladies eagerly did some shopping, browsing through the lovely display of jewellery, scarves and gifts for sale. Belinda from Loads of Flowers sponsored pink roses for everyone, and Momentum sponsored gift bags and did a very informative awareness talk." PRO for the Hirsch Centurion Branch told us. The current Mrs. South Africa, Lynne de Jager, was one of the motivational speakers and she explained that "only by believing in yourself, you can achieve anything you put your mind to, and you should never give up". Outside the store many ladies visited the "Pink Drive" mobile clinic where Liz Labuschagne and her team carried out free breast examinations. SACBW Chairlady Carina Nel invited two of the current 2012 Mrs. South Africa finalists to attend the event. Driekie van Wyk, one of the Finalists made pink pancakes which turned out to be a great favourite with all the staff and customers visiting the Hirsch's store. "It was a great day, even though a few tears were shed by some who had lost loved ones to breast cancer. Liz Labuschagne gave a great lecture on cancer awareness, the importance of doing regular check ups and explained how many people have been cured and today are healthy and cancer free . What a great event, thanks to everyone working together to lead South Africa and stand together to make things happen - to fight Cancer." Linda said.
