Think, eat and stay(cation) in pink as The Peninsula Manila—with Estee Lauder, Rustan's and partners—joins its sister hotels in Asia, North America and Europe in support of Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout October with “Peninsula in Pink,” a Peninsula-Hotels-wide campaign to raise awareness and funds through select and pink-themed offers.
“In Southeast Asia, the Philippines has the highest incidence of breast cancer... One in every 13 Filipinos falls victim to it and, as a woman, a sister, a daughter and the general manager of an institution that has worked for more than 38 years with various local organizations to help make a difference in the lives of people, I believe very strongly in the fight against this terrible disease,” says The Peninsula Manila general manager Sonja Vodusek.
