Turning Pink For Charity At Hilton Lake Taupo
Award-winning Hilton Hotel Supports Breast Cancer Month
October 10, 2014
TAUPO, New Zealand - Hilton Lake Taupo and team members are pledging their support this October to help raise awareness of Breast Cancer.
The hotel will undergo a lighting transformation to shine pink across the month and visually bring Breast Cancer month to life across the Taupo community.
Commenting on the activity, Ryan Mikkelson, Hotel Manager of Hilton Lake Taupo said "The hotel has been showing support to the incredibly worthy cause since 2009, and we are all proud to continue our long standing tradition to light up the hotel pink."
Team members of Hilton Lake Taupo will individually contribute through hotel fundraising campaigns with pink ribbon sales and turning themselves Pink For a Day®.
To encourage team member engagement, Pink For a Day® is an opportunity for workplaces across New Zealand to wear pink any day in October to help raise donations.
"We have already raised $100.00 in donations from holding our own Pink For A Day event and have a donation bucket at front desk for the month of October. This achievement reflects the dedication and social responsibility of all team members at Hilton Lake Taupo", said Ryan Mikkelson.
Donations raised across October will be contributed to The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and be used for research into treatments, life-saving awareness programmes and aid those going through treatment.
