Mantra Pledges Support for Field of Women Breast Cancer Event
When thousands of people touched by breast cancer stand united within the famed grounds of the MCG in May, leading accommodation provider, Mantra Group will be there in spirit with a pledge to attempt to raise $25,000 towards the ongoing battle against the deadly disease.
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is planning to stage a mammoth show of tribute for those affected by breast cancer, with a 'Field of Women LIVE' event on May 7 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground before the AFL match between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs. BCNA hopes to have 14,100 men and women participate to bring breast cancer statistics to life.
To show support and encouragement for such a huge and meaningful endeavour, Mantra Hotels, Resorts and Apartments hope to raise $25,000 for the cause by donating half of the best available room rate for stays at Melbourne City properties, booked through our 13 15 17 call centre and online via www.mantra.com.au/field-of-women
“Breast Cancer Network Australia's mission is to inform, empower, represent and link together Australians affected by breast cancer, and we at Mantra Group believe they deserve as much support as they can get for such a valuable service to our community,” says Bob East, Mantra Group CEO.
“Mantra Group takes our corporate social responsibility seriously, and sincerely believes in BCNA's work to ensure that those diagnosed with breast cancer and their families receive the very best information, treatment, care and support possible,” says Mr East.
“We are hoping the community will in turn support us in our efforts to reach our target donation of $25,000, by staying in one of our Melbourne properties on May 7- that way they can be sure that 50 per cent of their room rate goes directly towards backing this noble cause.”
