Every October the atrium and public areas around Beau Rivage become a fragrant and beautiful pink paradise designed and installed by Beau Rivage Resort & Casino horticulture team. They turn the property pretty in pink to raise awareness for breast cancer. This year the team will once again wow guests with large décor and flowers throughout the month of October. This year the team has installed 1,000 Love You Pink Euphorbia, 300 Nelly Light Pink Begonia, 100 Pink Muhly Grass, 300 Pink Blush Mums and 150 Red Sister Cordyline. Accenting the flowers are 12 bins of pumpkins. The atrium centerpiece is a large floral ribbon at the front desk.
“Throughout the month of October the mums will change shade. Guests can visit at various times throughout the month and watch the wondrous beauty of nature unfold all while raising awareness to the community about breast cancer,” said Assistant Director of Horticulture Teresa Malone.
To raise awareness resort-wide, the casino promotion for October is called Pretty in Pink. Mlife players can earn one virtual drawing entry for every 100 Slot Points earned throughout the promotional period. Grand prize drawings for $100,000 in FREEPLAY and a 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS550 giveaway will be held on November 1. Details are available at the Mlife desk and online. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz is on display in the atrium and includes a removable pink pinstripe.
The ultra-cool lounge EIGHT75 will feature a Pretty in Pink specialty drink menu during October. $1.00 from every Pink Drink sold goes to the Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. Guests can select a Pink-casso, Pink Sangria, Pink Passion, Pink Pucker, and the signature Pretty in Pink. Beringer White Zinfandel is also available on the specialty menu.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in women in the United States for 2015 are:
? About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer
? About 62,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
? About 40,290 deaths from breast cancer
Beau Rivage is proud to bring breast cancer awareness to the community in various ways across the property.
