Week of Pink

on October 17, 2013

Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?  Well, incase you didn’t get the memo: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!

In support of this my hotel signed up to participate in the ACS (American Cancer Society) Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Orlando (you can find an event near you here).  To provide extra incentive my GM issued a challenge to the team members.  If we can raise $500 he will wear a pink bar at the walk.  So with this goal in mind the week of fundraising began.

pins and bands

First we sold bands a pins.  This fundraiser was the winner for us.  Everyone likes to get something for giving right?


Our second and last fundraiser was a bake sale.  While the proceeds were lower than we have had from past bake sales we definitely had more people bake.  Some, even decided to do a pink theme.

The good news is that we reached and even exceeded our goal!  So I was given the task of obtaining and beautifying a pink bra.  I have to say buying a bra for this purpose was kind of weird.  None of the other customers knew what it was for but still…buying a bra for your male boss…weird.


Several of the Department Heads are very enthusiastic about this and offered lots of suggestions.  In the end I decided to use feathers, gems and tassel/pendant thing (no not on each cup; just one in the center).  Let me just say I hate feathers.  They get everywhere.
