The Miss High Tide ‘Think Pink’ meet and greet event was not only a quirky concoction of specialty cocktails, bubbles and balloons, but also a fundraiser for breast cancer.
All proceeds from ticket sales and a running pizza competition went to the Cook Islands Breast Cancer Foundation (CIBCF), a cause close to High Tide owner Kelly Jones’ heart after losing her grandmother to the disease.
Proudly representing her home island of Mangaia, Miss Cook Islands contestant Adoniah Lewis was excited to have so much support from friends, family and guests.
The other six Miss Cook Islands contestants also showed their support for their comrade by making an appearance before their rehearsals.
The event is over, but Jones is still encouraging everyone to ‘think pink’ as their pizza competition runs through September.
She hopes people will let their imaginations run wild to create a breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert pizza with the toppings of their choice.
Entry forms are available at High Tide and are limited to one per person.
Prizes for the winning pizza include a bottle of wine sponsored by CITC Liquor, a High Tide t-shirt and a free pizza.
Pizza lovers have until September 28 to describe their dream pizza before the winning topping is chosen the following day and put on the menu for the month of October.
All proceeds from the sale of that particular pizza will be donated to the CIBCF.
