Last call for cancer appeal designs

Thursday September 10, 2015 Written by Release Published in Entertainment

The Cook Islands Breast Cancer Foundation is making a last call to all local designers and would-be designers to craft designs for t-shirts, singlets and pareu commemorating this year’s annual breast cancer appeal in October.


The competition is open to anyone and the only stipulation is the design should incorporate both the CI Breast Cancer Foundation logo (a pink CIBCF bow), and the 50th Celebrations logo. 

CIBCF chairwoman Jaewynn McKay says, “We want the one-off clothing we sell during this year’s Pink October to do the talking for all those who can’t. Cancer is an insidious disease that strikes too many of our women folk, some are often too shy or live somewhere too remote, to seek early help. Early detection is the key to better survival. “

“In keeping with the celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of self-government, this year we’re asking designers to show their support for breast cancer survivors, patients and their families and come up with a suitable design or maybe a logo that incorporates the CIBCF and 50th logos. We want them to let their creative juices run wild and to come up with something that will be fun and appealing, but to the point and in keeping with the foundation’s work.

“We’re looking for local designs that boys and girls and women and men would feel proud and comfortable wearing.”

Entries will close on September 24. The winning designs will be modelled and available for sale at a Pink Ribbon celebrity breakfast launching Pink October, to be held at Café Salsa on October 1.

The reward for the winning designers will be seeing their designs being worn and knowing that they have contributed to a great cause.
