PINKtober in Abu Dhabi 2022

It’s time to THINK PINK this October for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women with 1 in 8 women being diagnosed in their lifetime - we all know someone who's got it or had it and the fight they face. The month of October sees the world go pink and raise awareness and raise funds for breast cancer treatment, support, and research. 

Here in Abu Dhabi, donations go towards Al Jalila Foundation and its partner charity “Brest Friends”, the UAE’s first breast cancer support group which not only raises awareness of the importance of early detection and invests in local breast cancer research but also provides essential support for patients and survivors.  

If you fancy supporting this worthy cause, read on to discover some amazing places to get your PINK on.



This beautiful new wine bar has just opened at Marriott Al Forsan and we're in love with its swanky interior, small-bites menu and stylish vibes. 

A perfect spot for a girl’s night, out this October you can raise a glass to the amazing, brave women in your life with their specially curated cocktail list: 5 Shades of Pink.

All profits from these very pink drinks will be donated to support Al Jalila's breast cancer awareness campaign.
