July 2018

Dear Chefs,

Hold onto your hats – The Pink Brigade 2018 is coming soon!

Can you believe that it’s already 5 years and counting since Chef Robbie kicked off The Pink Brigade?  And what an achievement it has been so far, uniting Chefs across the UAE and beyond in raising important awareness for the early detection of breast cancer.

We are absolutely tickled pink to let you know that thanks to the incredible efforts of our Chef family, The Pink brigade in 2017 raised an incredible AED 105,000 which is our highest total yet!  100% of the money raised has been donated to our chosen beneficiary, The Pink Caravan and was very gratefully received. Our donation goes a long way towards raising awareness and helping those affected by breast cancer.  Therefore, a huge thank you to everyone who has continued to support this Chef driven breast cancer awareness initiative.

We have teamed up, once again this year, with our incredibly generous friends at A.Ronai who be supplying this year’s new 2018 jacket design.  We will also have our popular Pink Aprons, head scarves for the ladies in our teams as well as a fancy new pink t-shirt! Watch this space for more updates.

The Pink Brigade Jacket remains at an affordable AED 100 per piece and the Pink Aprons and headscarves at AED 50. T-shirts we will launch at just AED 75.

Please note that in order to get the jackets and aprons to you on time, the deadline for all orders will be the 15th September!

So how to get involved?  Attached to this email are the order forms and size guidelines – please fill out and return to Cherry.Alfonso@medsdubai.com

Payment, is the same as last year and can be made by either cash or cheque at Galeries Lafayette, Dubai Mall.  Please make your cheques payable to French Department Stores LLC and get in touch with Cherry to arrange beforehand.

As with last year, we shall build an exciting social media campaign to give you all credit for your support which you are invited to tag and share.  More details to follow.

The latest bit of news is that with Robbie and Julie now back in the UK, Russell departs for London where he takes up a great position as Executive Chef!  Along with the team at Galeries Lafayette, Dubai, Chef Mick Kitts and Chef Luigi from Galvin will offer support becoming our Chef Ambassadors for 2018.  As The Pink Brigade steadily grows to become a successful international campaign, we hope that we can rely on your continued support.

Let’s make this year our most successful yet!

With our best wishes,

Chef Russell, Chef Robbie and the Pink Brigade Team
