Sanctuary Cove Unites in the Fight Against Breast Cancer this October
Sanctuary Cove will be blushing in shades of pink this October as the precinct presents a series of events to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club has teamed up with the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort, Sanctuary Cove Marine Village and Sanctuary Cove Body Corporate Services to raise money throughout October to support the cutting edge breast cancer research being conducted at Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics.
Starting with a Ladies’ Pink Competition Day on 1 October at Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club’s esteemed golf course The Pines, throughout the month there will be something for everyone.
With everything from golf tournaments to cocktail parties, Spring Fashion events and even fitness challenges throughout the month-long calendar of events.
Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club Executive General Manager Paul Sanders said that the charity events were an opportunity for local businesses and organisations to celebrate within the community while raising awareness and funds for a cause close to their chest with funds going to the world renowned research facility at Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics in Southport.
“Sanctuary Cove is open for business and we’re all operating under COVID-Safe plans so as much as it’s a really good cause quite literally close to the chests of the important women in our lives, these events are also a great opportunity to connect as a community and celebrate the good things in life together while raising much needed funds for vital research and commemorating those who lost the battle against breast cancer,” Sanders said.
Based within the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct on the Gold Coast, the Institute for Glycomics is home to the Australian Centre for Cancer Glycomics (A2CG), a unique national resource dedicated to cancer glycomics research. The Institute’s unique research approach centred around glycomics makes it the only institute of its kind in Australia and one of only a handful in the world. The state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure, coupled with the brightest scientific talent in the field of cancer glycomics, makes the A2CG an exciting hub of truly revolutionary cancer research.
“The Institute for Glycomics comprises over 200 multidisciplinary researchers and support staff who work tirelessly every day to find new ways to diagnose, prevent and cure cancer. We’re really pleased to be able to come together through a unique, local partnership to support this research happening right here on our doorstep.”
“With chic boutiques, bars and restaurants nestled amongst two championship golf courses as well as a five-star resort and world-class marina, Sanctuary Cove is renowned for being a lifestyle and leisure destination and our signature events showcase the relaxed, resort experience. As a precinct we’re looking forward to collaborating on such an extensive event calendar for a really important cause,” Sanders said.
The pink themed October events offer a vast variety of things to do for all ages. Major fundraisers include a Splash of Pink – Fashion & High Coffee Afternoon; Sanctuary Cove’s Biggest Morning Tee; a Golf clinic, tournaments and more.
