This October is breast cancer awareness month and Dubai is going pink!
It is our city’s aim to raise awareness of this disease, increase the knowledge of screening while also raising money to support the UAE’s tireless and excellent cancer foundations.
There are many super iniatives on this month, such as the Pink Caravan which will hold a 3-day self-awareness campaign from the 29th to 31st of October. This includes a free breast examination clinic, information for early detection and fundraising events. This is an excellent cause, which we truly recommend you visit.
Dubai has gone all out this year and many restaurants are participating in Pink October. Here are just a few of the many options out there for you to show your support.
La Cantine du Faubourg at Emirates Towers Hotel
La Cantine du Faubourg is working together with the Breast Cancer Arabia Foundation to raise money and awareness this October.
Renowned for their excellent French food and delicious cocktails, they will be offering a number of their classic dishes and drinks with a pink twist. Especially noteworthy is the Eton Mess, with rich pink Chantilly cream and pink meringue. For the cocktails try the Pink Lady or the Pink Blush, elegant and delectable.
If you choose any of these special options, all proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Arabia Foundation!
