Hyatt Regency Trinidad Partners with Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society to Honor Breast Cancer Survivors and to Raise Awareness

hyatt_1Hyatt Regency Trinidad, located in downtown Port of Spain, is sporting a new color this month – pink. From pink spotlights and flags displayed on the exterior of the hotel to pink ties and pins worn by staff, Hyatt Regency Trinidad is showing its support for cancer survivors and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“October is a very dear month to Hyatt Regency Trinidad. Along with supporting the efforts of Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society to raise awareness within our community, the hotel is offering a series of internal events to educate our staff about breast cancer and preventative care,” said General Manager Russell George.

Here are a few ways the hotel is raising awareness during this special month:

  • Hyatt Regency Trinidad hosted the sixth annual Survivors’ Breakfast on October 3.

In partnership with Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society, the event celebrated 50 breast cancer survivors with a musical performance by H2O Phlo & Lugo, a presentation by Ms. Brafit Ltd., and a motivational speech by Don La Foucade.

  • The hotel will host a series of events to promote wellness amongst Hyatt Regency Trinidad team members.  On October 27, the hotel will be the temporary home of a mobile cancer screening unit, where both male and female employees can seek preventative health testing. A cancer awareness lecture will follow on October 29.
  • Throughout the month of October, guests can enjoy afternoon tea at Cinnamon, and 50 percent of sales will be donated to the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society. Tea is served on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m., along with sweet treats and desserts decorated in pink. Reservations can be made by calling 868-821-6550.
