Calamatta Cuschieri Group is once again joining the Pink October movement in the fight against breast cancer. Throughout the month of October, the company will be arranging a number of fund raising events to help this cause. All funds raised will be donated to Action for Breast Cancer & the Marigold Foundation.
Alan Cuschieri, Group Co-CEO, commented on the Pink October movement, “Calamatta Cuschieri is committed to give back to the community, and help join in the battle against one of the worst illnesses we face. As the group continues to grow, we continue to increase our efforts to improve people’s lives through our contributions and activities.”
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer globally, and one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths in women over the age of 30 in Malta; however, it is also prevalent in men. If breast cancer is detected early enough, it can be successfully treated. By raising awareness, the Pink October movement hopes to encourage more women to get more frequent screening, enhancing their chance at successful treatment.
This year Calamatta Cuschieri Group’s events range from Dress-Down Friday’s and a raffle, to a heated Bake-Off and exciting team competitions, in which staff participate and donations will be collected. Employees are encouraged to take part in the Pink October initiative by donating €10 and participating in the events.
The Pink October raffle has been made possible thanks to generous donations from the community and staff. Calamatta Cuschieri wishes to thank everyone who has donated prizes to the raffle. Up for grabs are a variety of treatments at Marion Mizzi Wellbeing, dinners at The Chop House & Rokna, vouchers for Antonio’s Barbers Shop, a personal training session with Brian Zammit, a selection of Lindt goodies from Demajo Group of Companies, cinema tickets courtesy of Embassy Cinema, Avon goodie bags provided by Avon, a magnum bottle of red wine courtesy of Atelier Michael Tabone, Caravaggio 3 bottle gift pack courtesy of Marsovin, and a selection of other gifts from members of staff.
In addition to Pink October, Calamatta Cuschieri Group is taking part in, and arranging, a wide number of other events throughout the year, all for deserving causes such as this one. In recent years, the company set up the CC Cancer Foundation, and has organised a series of annual events that have been well attended, such as the Walk for Cancer, Blood Donation Drive, Investing in Nature, as well as collaborations with ALS Malta.
