(Macao, Oct. 11, 2019) – Conrad® Macao, Cotai Central has raised over MOP 108,000 for breast cancer awareness as part of its 2019 Pink Inspired October campaign after hosting a charity lunch on Thursday Oct. 10.

Also speaking at the lunch was Sally Lo from Hong Kong Cancer Fund (HKCF), who emphasized how early detection of breast cancer makes a significant difference in terms of life expectancy.

This year’s lunch was attended by 330 guests, all dressed in various shades of pink, who dined on a special pink themed, three-course lunch menu created by the talented chefs at Conrad Macao, which included a glass of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rosé Champagne and gift bag.
