Weekends in October: Think Pink Themed Afternoon Tea

To commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness, Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley is hosting a special Think Pink themed Afternoon Tea to drive awareness in its [esc] lobby lounge. This October 2023 on Fridays and Saturdays, a curated selection of eye-catching, pink-inspired patisserie and tea offerings will be available at [esc], and a portion of the proceeds of all Think Pink October specials will be donated to support ­HERS Breast Cancer Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Guests can sip on soothing teas and indulge in an array of pink-tinted delicacies while knowing that a portion of the proceeds will go towards a noble cause. Together, the intention is to raise awareness and support those in their fight against breast cancer. The luxury Hotel will donate five dollars from each Think Pink Afternoon Tea to HERS Breast Cancer.

A new collection of house-made treats infused with a touch of pink, imagined by the pastry team is offered. Spend time with loved ones over a decadent afternoon tea that includes an indulgent feast of Raspberry Lychee Rose Macaron, Strawberry Cheesecake, Pink Glazed Scones, Raspberry Hazelnut Financier, Pink Guava Mini Tart with savoury items such as Mini Lobster Roll, Brokaw Avocado, Chioggia Beets Crostini and Smoked Salmon offering a complete experience.

“Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women worldwide. Hence awareness about this deadly and silent disease is very important. The sooner it is caught in its tracks, the better it is. Therefore, it is important to spread awareness.  We encourage our staff and guests to educate themselves and to get regular mammograms done. Prevention is always better than cure,” says Adora Manalo, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley.

“Facing breast cancer and the road to recovery requires great strength," says Tina Fernande Steckler, Executive Director of HERS Breast Cancer. "This is why prevention is so important. Being aware of, and caring for, our bodies is incredibly important. One way of prevention method is regular mammography screenings:  every two years or annually, depending on one's physician’s recommendation. Breast health changes should be brought to the attention of one's health care provider, and a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a whole foods diet are also key to breast cancer prevention," she further added.

About HERS Breast Cancer Foundation

HERS Breast Cancer Foundation (“HERS”) was founded in 1998 by three dynamic women who were inspired to meet the unique needs of breast cancer patients before and after mastectomy surgery. Now in its 25th year of community service, HERS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and operates three Bay Area program locations, employs 16 staff members, is supported by dozens of dedicated volunteers, and completes over 2,000 patient visits annually.

HERS is accredited by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics; its Breast Care Specialists provide direct patient services and undergo extensive training and testing to earn their “CFm” (Certified Mastectomy Fitter) designation.

The HERS mission is to support all individuals healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of financial status. While HERS serves patients from all walks of life, its assistance programs are specifically designed to bridge the gap between low income and under-insured patients and the post-surgical products they need and deserve.

Products provided include post-surgical camisoles, breast prosthetics, pocketed bras, compression sleeves and gloves, and wigs. Its locations in Fremont, Livermore, and San Leandro are beautifully appointed spaces where patients are welcomed and served with compassion. HERS also handles insurance billing for patients so they may concentrate on what matters most:  their healing process.

The nonprofit’s program and services are supported by foundation grants, private donations, community-led fundraisers, and two major events hosted by HERS each year – its People with Purpose Gala and its 5k/10k Walk/Run and Yoga Fundraiser & Community Expo. Major funders include Fremont Bank, Washington Hospital Healthcare System/UCSF, Stanford Healthcare Tri-Valley, Star One Credit Union, and To Celebrate Life Foundation.

Donations are always welcome via PayPal; checks may be mailed to HERS Breast Cancer Foundation, 2500 Mowry Avenue, Suite 103, Fremont, CA  94538.
