An buzz of expectancy filled the air in the Dining Galleries on Friday night at the Penventon Park Hotel as the 3rd Pinking it Up dinner in aid of research into breast cancer, got under way.
Once again the dining room became a haze of pink balloons supplied by Steve Petty of Cornish Decorative Balloons and an especially pink themed menu devised by the chef awaited the taste buds of the 101 guests who had booked tables in anticipation of another enjoyable evening. Once again the Hotel pledged £5 to the charity for every person dining from the special pink menu.
On arrival, guests were offered a pink welcome drink and invited to make a donation which was added to the wishing tree supplied by Caramia occasion stationery & accessories. A raffle of several prizes took place, with the top prize being a 1 night stay for 2 including dinner at the Penventon Park Hotel. By the end of the night £1,041 had been raised. Brenda, who herself beat breast cancer, said
“ I am always grateful to the Penventon Park Hotel and its staff for the effort put in to make the evening such a success, and was very moved when they donated their tips for the night to the ‘pink it up’ fundraising event”.
Brenda is still amazed at the generosity of the local community and feels that with a little more effort on her part the £100,000 target can be achieved.
