A decade ago, Pink Polo was created by Val de Vie Events. They saw the need of women suffering and recovering from breast cancer and wanted to help. The event pays tribute to survivors of breast cancer and serves as a platform to raise awareness for a disease that is most prevalent in women, but also affects a high number of men. Today, the event is so well established that it is seen as a highlight on the Western Cape’s social calendar! Guests can enjoy a day out in luxury with gourmet snacks and wine for days! The polo games serves as a distraction for celebrities to relax with guests that travelled from all over the country to enjoy the day in the summer sun.
It was only natural for Viljoen Juweliers Worcester to join the party and to become the official jewellery sponsor. We stand for family traditions, making memories, love and new beginnings. Val de Vie nurture the same values, and this year’s event proved to be the steppingstone to a long relationship with the Val de Vie enterprise!
With the celebration of 10 years of Pink Polo, Viljoen Jewellers Worcester found it fitting to sponsor a 1.0ct diamond to the value of R 103 000. The beautiful diamond was successfully auctioned at the Pink Rise event in August. This event is one of the pre-Pink Polo build-ups and all the proceeds that was raised with this auction were donated to the breast cancer.
We are excited for the future and the next Pink Polo!
