Popworld, on Prince of Wales Road in Norwich, is hosting a Pink Party to raise money for the breast cancer awareness charity,Coppafeel!, on Friday 15th November. The much-loved party venue will be kitted out in all things pink for the event, as they fundraise for the charity that encourages both men and women to regularly check their breasts for symptoms of the disease.
Popworld has committed to donating 50p from every WKD Pink and Gordon’s Pink they sell throughout the night, as well as organising party games and a dance and selfie competition, to help bolster funds. The bar’s regular DJ, DJ Jake Rusko, will be treating customers to his selection of party hits, with an emphasis on the most iconic girl bands tunes, and for a small donation, customers can get involved in the selection process, picking their own anthems to dance the night away to.
Entrance is free before 11pm, but those wanting to secure their spot for the night, can put their names on the guest list and buy anytime entry tickets for £3 from the Popworld website. There will also be a raffle on the night for customers to get involved in, with a range of prizes up for grabs, from a luxury hamper, to some chocolates and a bar tab.
Danny Duong, General Manager of Popworld and organiser of the event, said: “We all need to be more aware of the signs and symptoms of cancer, and I think the work that Coppafeel! have done in a few short years, has been incredible in remedying that. For me the Pink Party is as much about raising awareness, as it is about raising money – although there is nothing wrong with donating a handsome bit of cash to a good cause.
“We’re all really excited about our event and we’ve already started putting together a collection of decorations for the bar… from pink drapes, to pink balloons and glitter stars, we’ve got it all. The place is going to look fantastic. The team and I will be donning our pinkest finery and encouraging customers to join in as well – so to everyone out there, get into your pink and come and join the party!”
