The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town will team up with CANSA (Cancer Association of South Africa), Le Creuset and Pongrácz to present an exclusive ‘Cuppa for CANSA’ Pink High Tea fundraising event on Thursday 1 October 2015 to mark the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Taking place in the hotel’s Atlantic Terrace Marquee overlooking the ocean, 70 guests will be able to enjoy this glamorous high tea in honour of the fight against the disease.

Guests are encouraged to round up female friends and family, dress up ‘pretty in pink’ and indulge in the pink themed delicacies on offer. During the event a breast cancer survivor will share her courageous story, while guests can also take part in a lucky draw to stand the chance to win special prizes.

After a welcoming glass of pink Pongrácz Rosé a scrumptious selection of pink treats will be presented, some of which feature cancer fighting ‘super-foods’ that are high in antioxidants. The choice includes freshly baked scones with strawberry cream, Pink velvet cupcakes, Strawberry macaroons, Rose panna cotta, Raspberry crémeux, and of course Bea’s famous cheesecake, served with forest berry gel.
