The Peninsula Bangkok inspired guests once again to combine culinary excellence with compassion for the Peninsula in Pink Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. For the third year, The Peninsula Bangkok and Turkish Airlines hosted the Eat Drink Pink gastronomic showcase presenting an elite selection of restaurants and bars handpicked from across Bangkok. Eat Drink Pink brought together celebrated dining institutions, such as Err, Lenzi Tuscan Kitchen, Il Fumo, Bunker, Sensi, Quince, Water Library, La Casa Nostre, Little Beast, Vesper, Baan and Blue Elephant as well as Asia’s Best Restaurants for 2017, namely, Le Du, Eat Me, Nahm and Suhring, to raise funds for the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation.
Under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen, the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer provides breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for underprivileged breast cancer patients from across Thailand. Her Majesty has described the centre as “a sanctuary for women in Thailand”. The Peninsula Bangkok is a long-time supporter of the Queen Sirikit Centre and its world-leading Pink Park Village in Bangkok, which is the world’s first non-profit holistic care and diagnostic centre and offers a hospice and convalescence home in addition to a day-care and activity centre for underprivileged breast cancer patients.
Pink Park Village provides comprehensive cancer care by an experienced team of doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, pharmacists and nutritionists. It has invested in advanced imaging technologies, a cutting-edge laboratory and molecular tests that were previously beyond the resources of any single institution in Thailand. “Our vision for Pink Park Village is to be a place of hope and care, and a genuine ‘sanctuary for all women in need.’ We plan to establish it as an advanced diagnostic leader that will be a benchmark for the region,” says Dr Kris Chatamra, Founder and Chairman of the Queen Sirikit Centre for Breast Cancer Foundation.
Hosted on Monday 20 November, Eat Drink Pink enabled guests to enjoy signature dishes, drinks and snacks prepared by Bangkok’s top chefs, culinary experts and bartenders at the hotel’s Sakuntala Ballroom. Combining fine cuisines and compassionate care is the shared objective of every participant. The event was attended by diplomats, high-profile guests, gourmet enthusiasts and Bangkok’s top chefs.
Eat Drink Pink was presented as part of The Peninsula Bangkok’s annual Peninsula in Pink campaign, which raises awareness and funds for local charity partners leading the fight against breast cancer.
