[Press and Public Relations] In the Pink



January 2002

No 3

An evening of health, beauty and self-indulgence is promised by the University of Leicester Catering Services in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign for the Imperial Cancer Research Fund.

The Pink Event - so called because every guest has to be able to show they are wearing at least one item of pink clothing! - will take place from 7 pm - 11 pm on Friday 25 January 2002 in the University's Garendon Suite, 4th Floor of the Charles Wilson Building on the main campus.

Among the attractions are skin care and Indian head massage workshops, demonstrations by Razina from Salon la Beauty, a reception drink, two-course dinner and gifts for the ladies from Truly Madly Deeply and By Candlelight. A bar will be open all evening offering a selection of beverages and wines.

Louise Woolley of the University of Leicester Catering Services said: "The Pink Event should be a lot of fun and we hope it will raise a good sum for a very worthy cause. We are very grateful to the sponsors for their generosity."

Tickets cost 14.95, of which 2 will be donated to the Imperial Cancer Research Fund Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, as will proceeds from the prize draw raffle. First prize in the raffle will be a weekend for two in London sponsored by the Students' Union Travel Shop, second prize  hand-wrapped bouquets from Truly Madly Deeply and third prize a Guinot facial & body care presentation basket.
