Peninsula in Pink
In Manila, The Peninsula hosted an exhibition of artworks at The Lobby from September 15 to October by renowned Filipino artists such as BenCab, Plet Bolipata, Elmer Borlongan, Impy Pilapil, Ramon Orlina, industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue; and select pieces from some of the finest contemporary Filipino galleries such as Artinformal, Avellana Art Gallery, Galleria Duemila, Silverlens, The Drawing Room and Tin-aw. All pieces were auctioned at the Art of Pink Auction Party, held on October 1, by leading global auction house Christie’s.
The creative theme "Art of Pink" is designed to raise awareness and funds in the fight against breast cancer in the Philippines where one in every 13 Filipinos falls victim to this insidious disease.
Proceeds raised from the Peninsula in Pink campaign will go to the Philippine Foundation for Breast Care, Inc, The Peninsula Manila’s long-time charitable partner that will be rehabilitating and rebuilding the Breast Care Center of East Avenue Medical Center in Quezon City.
