The Art of Pink Charity Gala Dinner

November 19, 2015
Benefits Keep a Breast Japan®
Pink was the preferred color at The Peninsula Tokyo throughout the month of October 2015, as the hotel showed its commitment to the fight against breast cancer with pink-themed fashion, art and dining events. One highlight was “The Art of Pink Charity Gala Dinner” held on October 19, which raised more than JPY 1.8 million in support of Keep A Breast Japan® and its initiatives to promote awareness of early cancer detection and treatment.

Co-sponsored by luxury fashion publications 25ans and Richesse, the Grand Ballroom event featured talks by kimono expert and essayist Taka Kimura, who shared her views on the art of Japanese beauty, and by Anteprima Creative Director Izumi Ogino joined by the two magazines’ editor-in-chief, Hiromi Sogo.
The 121 guests in attendance mingled and conversed amid displays of 20 colorfully designed breast casts by international artists, and were treated to a five-course dinner by Chef Laurent Poitevin, who flew in from France to showcase the signature tastes of Le Lobby restaurant at The Peninsula Paris along with a stellar selection of French wines and Champagnes. Before the evening’s close a raffle was conducted for six Anteprima wirebags, five of which were one-of-a-kind, all-pink accessories created by the coveted fashion brand expressly for the occasion. Other enticing prizes included a one-night stay in a Deluxe Room at The Peninsula Tokyo, a strand of Mikimoto Akoya pearls, and a Tag Heuer Professional Sports Watch of brushed titanium with a pink mother-of-pearl face.

Part of a global program launched in Hong Kong in 2010 and now supported by all 10 Peninsula hotels worldwide, The Art of Pink in its Tokyo edition celebrated an evening of timeless feminine joy, playfulness and glamor while supporting the global pink ribbon campaign.
