Paying tribute to Pink October, Doha Festival City and The Teal Society held a Ribbon Cutting ceremony to raise awareness on Breast Cancer and women health in Qatar
Doha, Qatar – 18 September 2021: Doha Festival City, Qatar's one and only choice for shopping, dining and entertainment, held an in-mall Ribbon Cutting ceremony dedicated to raising awareness on women health, in collaboration with Qatar’s branch of the Teal Society organization.
As part of Festival City’s commitment to Qatar’s community, the Mall has partnered with the Teal Society for the second year in a row, ahead of the Breast Cancer awareness month. The ceremony was dedicated to shed light on women health and breast and gynecological cancers, as well as on the importance of preventative measures to fight the diseases.
The event was held in the framework of The Teal Society ‘Travelling Teal Ribbon’ initiative. After the opening ceremony, the Ribbon will remain on display in the Squares Node at Doha Festival City until 19th September.
Robert Hall, Doha Festival City’s General Manager, said: “We are delighted to partner again this year with The Teal Society on this major issue that affects every member of the society. As part of our commitment to social responsibility, Doha Festival City strongly encourages the community to become more familiar with issues related to women health as well as the preventive measures.”
The Teal Society is a Los-Angeles-based non-profit organization focusing on all things related to gynaecologial cancer and aiming at building a tightly-women community to support those who are suffering. Founded by Qatar-based behavioural therapist and entrepreneur NickiJean Alexander, The Teal Society made its mark in the Middle East with the launch on 8 March 2020.
