SINT MAARTEN (CAY HILL) - Kooyman is happy to once again team up with the Elektralyets and the Positive Foundation to host the 4th Annual “Paint It Pink” Makita ladies Workshop this Saturday October 19th, 2019.
The event has gained popularity over the last few years and the hype surrounding the event is growing stronger every year.
Travel Planners joined in on the Fun in 2018 and Sponsored 50 individuals, they have now teamed up to PAINT IT PINK once again this year and have made it possible for an additional 100 ladies to register and join in on the fun.
“We started with 200 ladies, which then grew to 250 and 300 last years, said Kooyman Commercial Officer Evencia Carty-Seabrookes. And now thank you Zaida and the Team at Travel Planners we have managed to offer 400 participants the opportunity to PAINT IT PINK!”
This year is the 4th edition of the MAKITA PAINT IT PINK Workshop and it’s also the biggest tally of ladies to participate in the workshop thus far. “Hosting 400 ladies will be quite a task this year, said Evencia Carty-Seabrookes, Kooyman Commercial Officer. But we do have a great team including staff, partners and fans who have supported this event from the very beginning. And every year the event gets even bigger and better”.
“The registrations for this event was filled very quickly due to the support of its fan base and growing popularity as one of the feature workshops on the Breast Cancer Awareness Calendar of events, said Elektralyets Foundation President, Mercedes “Elektra”van der Waals-Wyatt. Thanks to Zaida Urvina- Franca and her team at Travel Planners we are now able to open up 100 more coveted spots to some lucky ladies who will now get to experience this interactive workshop and take part in an event which really relies on the sisterhood and support among women. When it comes to Breast Cancer many women need that support from their community, family, friends, loved ones and co-workers to help them go through this tough disease.
This DO IT YOURSELF workshop will offer ladies the opportunity to build their very own “LOVE Shelf “which they will be tasked to “PAINT IT PINK”. The Positive and Elektralyets Foundation feel this interactive workshop offers ladies a time to have fun, love themselves, be breast aware and support other ladies including breast cancer survivors and warriors as we continue our Breast Cancer Awareness Campaigns in the near future.
After completing their work of arts, ladies will be treated to free cocktails in the “PINK LOUNGE” courtesy of the team at CC1 beverages as well as Free Beauty Makeovers by Vanity First and Black UP, Fashion & Jewelry exhibitions and Skin Care demonstrations.
