Hello, I'm looking for inspiration to create a successful pink ribbon day/fundraiser that engages our staff and residents. It has not been done in our facility before so any suggestions or ideas would be very welcome.

Many thanks in advance.

That's a lovely idea Wendy. I just looked it up and it's on the 24th of October (for anyone wondering) so still plenty of time to prepare.

A high tea party might be a nice idea? It would be easy to weave a pink theme into this.

This is a great question to ask on our Facebook Group page too :

Let us know how you go!

Thanks Talita for these links - they've given me some good starting points! Here's a couple more ideas to throw into the melting pot. Other suggestions welcome :-)

* I'm hoping to have some of the ladies bake cupcakes prior and we will wrap these and sell to staff/families as fundraiser
* Perhaps craft with ladies prior? Maybe paper flowers to use as decorations on day?
* With approval I'm hoping to raffle a "win a 1/2 day off" voucher. This is more of a fundraiser for the for staff but hopefully it will generate some interest!
* Encourage ladies and team/staff to wear pink on the day.
* I also really like the idea of having soft background music and reading some lovely poetry on the day.

As a fairly new face to Lifestyle and Leisure I'm very much enjoying the role and the process of creating activities to connect our beautiful residents :-)

Thanks again Talitha for ideas.
