Pop of Pink at Bellissimo Galway in aid of Breast Cancer Research

Pop Of Pink Fundraiser Hosted by Bellissimo  

After the success of last years event Mini Media was delighted to assist Bellissimo in hosting a ‘Pop Of Pink’ fundraiser in aid of Breast Cancer Research on Friday June 30th 2017. The local hair and beauty complex welcomed everyone between 11am and 2pm to enjoy light refreshments, kids face painting by Chloe & Keisha and aroma hand massages by Dolores from Irish Health Hour.  

With the support of local businesses including R.Dent, The g Hotel, Nimue Skin Ireland, Elverys, Ór Jewellery, Suzie Mahony Designs and Anthony Ryans there were lots of amazing spot prizes up for grabs.  The first 20 people to donate also received a little gift.   

Award winning milliner Suzie Mahony had a selection of hats and accessories on display and sponsored a fabulous gold clutch worth €65.  The team from Rdent Cosmetic and General Dentistry also support this event by sponsoring the fantastic selection of cupcakes, cookies and cake pops created by Nicci's Cake Labs and a hamper worth €150.

Mike O’Connor Owner of Bellissimo, explains why he chose to support the charity “Bellissimo are only too delighted to support BCRI helping to raise much needed funds and of course bringing more local awareness to this amazing organisation.  An extremely high proportion of our clientele are female and I personally don't know one family who hasn't been affected by cancer. Doing our 'little bit to help' is part of our ethos here at Bellissimo and we hope it will be supported strongly by our friends and clients on the day... last year was a great success and we hope this year will be even better!”

A total of €733.17 was raised on the day with all funds donated to Breast Cancer Research. Thank you to everyone that support this very worthy cause and donated so generously.  You support is very much appreciated. 


Breast Cancer Research is a national charity celebrating 25 years of positively impacting future outcomes for breast cancer patients by funding world-class breast cancer research at NUI Galway. In Ireland, 1 in 10 women will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. Breast cancer is more common in women over the age of 50, however women (and men) of any age can develop breast cancer. Early detection is the best defence against breast cancer and research has improved the diagnosis, treatment options, and outcomes for those who develop the disease.
