The Penventon Park Hotel is pleased to announce that the ‘Pink It Up’ charity event smashed last years fundraising total – reaching over £1500.00! One guest commented “It was one of the best night’s out that we have had had in a long time, we can’t wait for next year!”
During the day, the hotel’s health and leisure suite was the scene for pre dinner pampering with many toe or finger nails being painted in shades of pink and mini treatments whilst guests enjoyed complementary pink themed cup cakes and refreshments with all invited donations raising funds for Cancer Research UK – Check out some pictures of the day on our facebook page >>
The pink theme continued into evening with guests arriving in beautiful arrays of pink attire. After being served pink bubbly on arrival, donated by St Austell Brewery the guests were invited to give a small donation which was placed onto the wishing tree, kindly provided by Caramia Designs. After purchasing the evenings raffle tickets the guests were shown through to the restaurant which was decorated in pink and white balloons by Steve Petty of Cornish Decorative Balloons. Once seated the guests then enjoyed the hotels especially themed pink menu.
Brenda Pedley; chief organiser of the event and breast cancer survivor was overwhelmed by such generosity and support shown by the community and guests in joining the ongoing fight for women’s survival.
“I appreciate very much the support that the Pascoe family and all at the hotel have given over the past years. Much of the £82,500 that I have raised for Cancer Research UK has been through the Penventon Park Hotel. All the guests were very generous with donations and I was very touched when at the end of a hard nights work the staff presented me with their tips of over £100″.
After many great comments about the evening Brenda and the Hotel are already planning a bigger and better ‘Pink it up 2013!’
