TEMECULA – Wondering what to do this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month to honor a loved one or someone battling the disease? The Cove at Pechanga Resort Casino will host a Twilight Candle Send-Off Thursday, Oct. 24. Doors open at 5 p.m. The lantern release will be at sunset, and the event will conclude at 7 p.m. Guests can decorate a lantern for their loved one who was or still is affected by the disease in any form. All together, the lit lanterns will be released into the pool in remembrance and thought of the family member or friend.
The event is $15 and includes all materials to create the special lanterns. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Hair We Share, an organization that makes and distributes wigs free of charge to eligible patients with a medical hair loss condition.
Guests who donate hair at the “hair-a-thon” in the morning and choose to stay until the Twilight Candle Send-Off will receive a 50% off day pass to the Cove for Oct. 24.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, affecting one in eight. The organization statistics show more than 200,000 women develop breast cancer and more than 40,000 women die from the disease each year.
The Twilight Candle Send-Off is a time for the community to gather, share stories of those they love and show their support. The pink-themed event will offer pink wine donated by the locally based Callaway Winery.
To attend the Twilight Candle Send-Off, just show up. For questions, visit http://www.pechanga.com or call the Cove concierge line at (951) 770- 8450.
