Mohammed Al Habtoor, Vice Chairman and CEO of Al Habtoor Group says, “Hosting our first-ever Ladies Charity Cup is a proud moment for us. Through the collective support of the playing teams, our staff and all the guests joining us on the day, we give our contribution to breast cancer awareness advocacy on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of women who are diagnosed with every year.”
“We love that we can use the beautiful sport of polo to bring fans together at this exciting event while supporting a cause that impacts so many of us and our families,” added J. Michael Prince, President and CEO of USPA Global Licensing, the exclusive worldwide licensor for the USPA’s global licensing program and parent organisation to the U.S. Polo Assn. brand. “Today, women are making such a huge, positive impact on both the sport and on our brand, so we are supporting events such as this around the world as part of own Women’s Initiative Program.”
Dr Sawsan Al Madhi, Director General of FOCP and Head of the Pink Caravan’s Medical and Awareness Committee said: “As an organisation dedicated to promoting and raising cancer awareness in the UAE, we believe in the power of partnerships to expand the scope of our work to improve the standards of breast cancer screening and treatment within the UAE, and highlight the critical importance of early detection.
“We are delighted to be joining hands with well-known U.S. Polo Assn. to further our goals for this worthy cause and extend the benefits of our work to a larger population across the UAE. Such meaningful collaborations reflect on our nation’s humanitarian spirit, and will boost our efforts in bringing early detection to the forefront and to serve as a key resource for cancer patients, their families and caregivers.”
A portion of the proceeds raised will be donated to benefit Pink Caravan under the non-profit organisation Friends of Cancer Patients.
