As part of its continues social responsibility initiatives, Qatar’s iconic hotel Marriott Marquis City Center Doha hosted Fight Against Breast Cancer event in partnership with Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) to raise awareness and fund for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The monthly health campaign aims at constructing awareness about the disease, raising funds for QCS and enforcing the importance of early detection.

Hosted in the lobby of the hotel, the event was held in the presence of QCS representatives, a breast cancer survivor, media and hotel guests. The occasion commenced with an informative Breast Cancer speech by QCS. The panel highlight was for women to learn more about their risk of breast cancer as well as ways to prevent, screen and treat this disease. The breast cancer survivor guest shared her journey – one filled with faith, hope, determination and gratitude for the support she received from QCS.

To mark this special occasion, the hotel is not only offering Think Pink Items’ at Quick Bites and Pink Fika Time at West End Cafe throughout October, but it has committed to donating 10% of the proceeds from the sale of Pink Concept for QCS.

Multi-Property General Manager at Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel, Rick Enders, said:

We are delighted and proud to partner with Qatar Cancer Society for the fourth consecutive year to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness. With this campaign, we aim to increase awareness of breast cancer and raise funds for research and honor those who have fought against it. We trust that our contributions have a part in helping both expanding awareness, and helping towards early detection.’

Pink Fika Time in West End Cafe, priced at QAR55 per person, will be served daily from 10 am to 5 pm until 31 October, complete with homemade Swedish pastries. For a true break with friends and family.

Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel guests will enjoy either West End Cafe or Quick Bites pink offerings, and the satisfaction of knowing that a portion of their meal tab will go directly to QCS.
