Pink For a Purpose

[trip style = urban + luxury] Like a crisp rosé savoured with a creamy rocchetta cheese, when an afternoon or overnight break is paired with good cause, it is that much more rewarding. This month, eating and staying with a purpose comes in a shade of pink in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation {CBCF}.

Here are a few eat + stay + support opportunities at hotels in BC* embracing breast cancer awareness month: *if you reside outside of Vancouver or Seattle, and want to support pink, check with your favourite hotels and resorts for pink partnerships
