Cintron Pink Polo 2016 at Val de Vie Estate
 
01:01
Pink was the order of the day as Cape Town A-listers gathered at Val de Vie Estate for Cape Town’s top breast cancer awareness event – the 7th Annual Cintron Pink Polo. The Val de Vie Polo Pavilion was abuzz this past Saturday with polo lovers, local and international VIP guests and celebrities such as Leigh-Anne Williams, Lee-Ann Liebenberg, Tanya Van Graan, Rosette Ncwana, Twala Ngambi and Chad Saaiman. The Cintron Pink Polo has garnered mass support over the past 7 years and 2016 was no exception. Polo is synonymous with fashion, and this year guests were captivating in their polo chic Serenity and Rose Quartz inspired outfits. As guests ushered in, they walked into a transformed Val die Vie with the décor paying homage to this year’s theme and pantone colour of the year. From delicate pinks to blue and violet hues that could be spotted almost everywhere, Val die Vie Events together with the décor company, Something Different Concepts and Shows, creatively translated the theme while ensuring that every lounge had a different touch to it. The Official Fashion Partners at the 2016 event – Luisa Spagnoli South Africa - showcased their latest resort collection of classic looks on the catwalk with some sophisticated and timeless pieces. Admired for their sophistication, this iconic Italian fashion brand brought style, quality and elegance to the polo runway. Cars, more like fashion are an essential part of polo and this year Paarlberg BMW, the Official Car Partners, had a grand display of the latest top of the range models – the true definition of horse power. The MC for the day, Nico Panagio, entertained and captivated guests with his style and charm while the Polo Commentator for the day, the animated Matthew Pohl, kept guests on the edge of their seats during the riveting high scoring 14 goal polo. Team Cintron, under the captaincy of Leroux Hendriks went home with the trophy with a 10-8 win against Julius Baer. George Morgan put on a stellar performance thus deserving the Most Valued Player Award. The best playing pony was Martin Venter’s Special. Swiss luxury watch brand, Jaeger-LeCoultre were the official Time Keeper and not a single beat was missed – not on their watch. Guests enjoyed stylishly curated experiences such as the Sisley and Tosca Salon Hair and Beauty beauty activations, Vodacom Wi-Fi and charging station, the Samsung flower photo activation station, couture style cocktails by headline sponsor Cintron World and the Gin Sponsor, Musgrave Gin Pink Gin. This year, attendees had the opportunity to take a piece of the Pink Polo home by purchasing limited edition Cintron Pink Polo shirts and cocktail cups. Fujifilm gave away cameras to two lucky guests during a fun divot stomping competition where guests had to look for tokens in the divots. “We are proud to continue our association with this event which not only allows guests to experience world class 14 goal polo with all the embellishments, but also creates awareness and empowers women who are bravely facing all the challenges of treatment. This year was a major success and through our work with the Pink Polo and other initiatives we have been able to raise close to a R100 000.00 for breast cancer. Each year is a different experience and a wonderful combination of luxury and lifestyle. At Cintron World, we consider ourselves to be part of a global community and South Africa is a very essential part of our community,” said Chelsea Brehm, Director of Marketing, from Cintron World. This year the Cintron Pink Polo partnered with Fynbos Valley Gift Boxes, a Paarl local business that is steadfast in their fight against breast cancer. The Blossom Box Boutique was brought to life on the day with a beautiful pop-up experience and gifting initiative of bespoke gift boxes. These contained locally sourced beauty and therapeutic products which inspire, motivate and treat women who are bravely fighting breast cancer. Polo lovers could select a gift, write a note of encouragement making the initiative a more personalized experience. These will be delivered to the St Stephen’s Oncology Centre (Premium Social Care) in Paarl. As the day drew to an end and the sun set behind the magical pink mountains, guests danced their hearts out to Jimmy Nevis’s electrifying performance. Sport24hrs Taxis & Shuttles ensured that Cintron’s guests arrived home safe and sound – the perfect ending to an incredible day. Save the date for the 8th Cintron Pink Polo at Val de Vie Estate and keep an eye on our pages to not miss out on tickets in 2017: 4 November. Contact Val de Vie Events at events@valdevie.co.za

After Childhood Cancer, My Big Life  | Sammi Janower | TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet
 
10:04
As a 3-year-old child, Sammi was diagnosed with a brain tumor, requiring brain surgery, two years of chemotherapy, and many months in the hospital. Now, at age 16, Sammi has gone from being the inspiration for bike riders in the Pan Mass Challenge (a ride for Dana Farber) to riding in the race herself. This petite, 4’10” high school junior demonstrates some pretty outsized strength. My name is Sammi Janower. I am 16 years old and currently a rising Junior at the Noble and Greenough School. When I was 3, I was diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor. I spent much of my childhood feeling nauseous and tired as the result of my treatments, some of which have had undesirable long term side effects. For my TEDx talk, I would want to focus on the idea that everything happens for a reason. Although I went through a terrible experience, I am now able to help others in the same situation and try to use the story of my cancer journey to inspire others. I have spent years helping to raise money for research into less toxic and more effective treatments for brain tumors. In addition, I have trained for two years to ride the Pan Mass Challenge on a tandem with my dad. As a result of our efforts over the past decade, this formerly orphan disease is much closer to a cure, helping many children and their families find hope for a better future. I believe that I am making a positive impact in the world by advocating for an orphaned disease and for the support of cancer research. Speaking at the Pan Mass Challenge Heavy Hitter’s dinner in May, I helped raise awareness for such a great organization and raise more money for the cause. Similarly, by working with our family’s foundation, A Kids Brain Tumor Cure, I have helped to raise money in order to find non-toxic cures for pediatric brain tumors, some of which are being by patients today. I want to share my story now because I believe that the sooner we raise awareness, the sooner we can find a cure. Additionally, in this point in my life, I am a 16 year old girl, just starting Junior year of high school, a place where my parents never thought I would get to. For me, to be able to stand here and tell my story, is amazing. I am far enough away from the experience to reflect upon its impact on my life but still young enough and close enough to the experience to be able to feel the long-lasting effects that cancer has had on my life and my future. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
