A fantastic donation of the sum of DKr.10,000 has just arrived from one of our loyal guests to our events! We would like to thank Oribe Hair Care Danmark, GN Products for this wonderful sponsorship, which will be used for our Pink Tribute Fund.

The Pink Tribute Fund provides a “special experience” for terminally ill breast cancer patients and their loved ones. Pink Tribute has created a special fund for terminally ill patients with breast cancer. Patients cannot themselves make an application, but the nurses in charge will collaborate with nursing groups at breast cancer clinics at Herlev and RH, and will elect patients they believe to be especially in need and deserving. The Pink Tribute fund helps where it is believed it may make a “big difference” in the patient’s situation.

This would not be at all possible if it weren’t for our fantastic sponsors such as these!

We had a wonderful event, kindly hosted by the Polish Embassy on Thursday 2nd October. Lovely setting, fascinating speakers, amazing entertainment, and rooms buzzing with positivity. Thank you to all our guests, our sponsors and volunteers.

A full list of our dedicated sponsors, without whom these events and our endeavours would not be possible, is below.
Warm regards – The Pink Tribute Committee

We had a wonderful event at the British Embassy Thursday 3rd October. Amazing weather, amazing speakers, and amazing entertainment. Thank you to all our guests, our sponsors and volunteers. Regards – The Pink Tribute Committee!

After socializing we had some amazing talks hosted by Merete Lundemo Minister of the Royal Norwegian Embassy who gave us an overview of the history of the building. This was followed by a talk by Dr. Anne Tjønneland, a medical researcher and author within breast cancer, to be followed by an interview between Josina Bergsøe and Mette Hoffman Meyer to talk about Josina’s experiences when she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and last but not least we had a talk by Bente Kruse, who had very recently lost her daughter to breast cancer.

Although especially the last talk was very sad and harrowing, we felt that we had looked at what we are trying to support from many angles, to raise further awareness and understanding, and therefore achieved part of our goals of hosting the luncheon.

Before heading in to the luncheon we then announced the recipient organizations for 2012 as follows:

  • “Krop & Kræft”
  • “Børn, Unge og Sorg”
  • Dr. Med. Birgitte Bruun Rasmussen, senior pathologist at Herlev Hospital

We then went back indoors into the beautiful colour coded rooms of the residence. Here we now had the honour of listening to Peter Lodahl sing, which was truly magical. And finally, we had lunch presented beautifully by our chefs, Charles-René Madsen and Morten Tønnesen. It was truly delectable and we hope to persuade him to help us again next year.

And finally we announced our lucky lottery winners as well as the silent auction winners.

All in all, an incredibly successful luncheon and we hope to see many of you again next year.
Many thanks once again for all your support!

Party in Pink!
We had a fantastically successful Zumbathon held at Gentofte Rådhus with more than 120 women (and one man) doing the most amazing moves. And most of them clad in PINK.

Really fantastic to see so many supporters there and having fun. A huge thank you also goes out to the people who helped make it a reality such as Connie Yndal, the amazing Zumba instructor who pulled together a great team of zumba instructors, to Anders Hald, our professional photographer and not least of all to Gentofte Rådhus who let us use their amazing hall for the event.

The last guest with the last goodie bag has left the house. The committee gathers together to talk about the event that has just come to an end after almost a full year of planning. We come to a unanimous decision that this one was the best one. We have said that each year so… practice probably does make perfect, but this year was excellent! We had a full house at the beautiful home of Lea Cristina, the wife of the DCM at the American Embassy.

The delectable and well-presented food was made by the inhouse DCM chef, Birgitte Voss with a few additional desserts and wines donated by our faithful sponsors. We had beautiful flowers decorating the house and the tent.

Our speakers were Dr. Ilse Vejborg, head of mammography screening in Denmark who spoke about the facts and figures regarding screening in Denmark and Ingelise Ross Pedersen, a breast cancer survivor, who gave a funny and heart warming rendition of her fight with breast cancer.

Our recipient organizations, this year were “Look Good…Feel Better ( who received 55,000 Kroner, Professor Henrik J. Ditzel received 25,000 Kroner for a centrifuge for his research in breast cancer and “Krop & Kræft” received a donation of 10,000 Kroner plus ten pink yoga mats.

Nikolaj Znaider played “Violin and Piano Opus 30 no. 3” on violin with piano accompaniment by Robert Kulek. This was the second year for our successful Pink Tribute Lottery. During lunch, those who had pre-purchased lottery tickets eagerly awaited the claim of the generously donated prizes: furs, jewelery, and Nespresso machines to name a few! It was a terrific event and we thank our many guests for making it possible. We look forward to seeing you next year.
