June 29th, 2012 marked the first Microlise Goes Pink Day in support of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer foundation.
This event was in support of Val Love who lost her mother to breast cancer and whose sister is now fighting the illness along with the other members of the Microlise staff that have been affected by this terrible disease.
Supporters were in abundance on the day wearing pink, buying cupcakes, purchasing raffle tickets and participating in all of the charity events (i.e. Guess the Teddy’s Name, Guess the weight of the cake and Guess How Many Sweets).
Microlise carried on the success of the day with a barbeque where supporters could eat, listen to the Hot House Jazz Band, jump around on a bouncy castle, purchase balloon animals and have their faces painted.
The day ended on a high with the announcement of the raffle ticket winners who received prizes that were donated by local businesses, friends of Microlise, and Microlise colleagues. Some of the prizes included a Dambusters Tiger Moth Flying Experience (donated by Blue Eye Aviation), Portable Bluetooth Hands Free Kit (donated by SM Fleet), Ipod Nano 16GB (donated by CCS Media), 125 Years of Raleigh Limited Edition Book (donated by Raleigh UK), George Forman 4 Portion Family Grill (donated by Microlise), Starbucks Hamper (donated by Starbucks Giltbrook) and much much more.
