Conrad Macao also acknowledged the support of ARTĒ Madrid who helped make this year's fund-raising campaign even more successful by donating an exquisite Glorioso necklace featuring 49 pear-shaped and 13 marquise-shaped white stones valued at MOP7,000.
ARTĒ Madrid, an internationally renowned Spanish jewellery designer whose shop is located at Shoppes at Venetian donated a beautiful Glorioso Necklace with white stones to support the campaign. Guests who stayed at the hotel during the campaign and purchased a PINK upgrade package, including making a donation to this worthy cause went in the prize draw to win the beautiful necklace; and with more than 450entries received during the campaign and the lucky winner was announced on 2nd November.
Hotel guests were able to support ‘Pink Inspired' by making a MOP10donation upon check-out from their room, booking a PINK Afternoon Tea experience, opting for PINK room upgrades, or purchasing an exclusive Conrad Pink bear or rubber duck. The hotel's award-winning signature restaurant Dynasty 8 also had a special PINK menu.
One of the highlights of the campaign this year was a Pink charity lunch co-organized with the International Ladies Club of Macao (ILCM) on 15 October, with emcee Hong Kong television personality Sean Lee-Davies and guest speaker Ms Zita Ong, CEO of media company Edipresse. More than 200 guests dined on a Pink themed menu and were able to purchase raffles to be able to win more than MOP174,000 in raffle prizes thanks to the support of many of the retail partners at Sands Shoppes Cotai Strip Macao including Shanghai Tang, Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren, Maryling, Sabon, Furla, AntePrima, Butani Jewellers as well as luxury hotel stays at Conrad New York, Conrad St James London, Conrad Beijing, Conrad Singapore, Conrad Maldives and the Rome Cavalier, a Waldorf Astoria hotel.
