The Cintron Pink Polo is a much-anticipated annual polo event held at the beautiful Val De Vie Estate just outside Paarl.
But it’s not only a great opportunity to dress up & enjoy some of the finer things in life, it’s also an opportunity to contribute towards an incredible cause (which we all associate with the colour pink of course): breast cancer awareness.
This year they’ll be supporting Reach for Recovery and their DITTO Project which provides breast prosthesis to women who have undergone a mastectomy. Reach for Recovery says that the reality in SA is that many cancer patients can’t even afford a bra, let alone breast prosthesis, and the DITTO project aims to help these women feel beautiful & confident again. I think that’s amazing, don’t you?
Now I’m very excited, because this will be the first year that I attend the Cintron Pink Polo. The last few years my Instagram & Twitter feeds were filled with Pink Polo awesomeness and it left me feeling some major FOMO. But this year, not again I tell you! Not again…
