Pinktober Was All Smiles for Breast Cancer Awareness at 21 High Street

To support the Qatar Cancer Plan 2023-2026, which aims to ensure that everyone in Qatar has access to accurate information and the highest quality cancer care, 21 High St, the ultimate outdoor shopping destination in Katara, launched a 360-degree photo booth. Visitors took fun and creative pictures and videos to show their support for breast cancer awareness.

The booth was prominently located in 21 High St. and was open from 5pm to 10pm on weekdays and 5pm to 12pm on weekends, starting on Thursday, October 5th and running for two weeks.

Decorated with white flowers and pink ribbon which are universally recognized symbols of breast cancer awareness, the 360-degree photobooth was both eye-catching and meaningful.

“We are proud to partner with Qatar Cancer Society to support their important work,” said Evelyn De Croutte, General Manager, 21 High Street. “Women often have to juggle many different roles, from running the household to working full-time jobs. Therefore, we need to look at our well-being from a 360-degree angle taking into consideration our physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health.”

Shoppers had a lot of fun at the 360-degree photo booth and captured some amazing memories with their friends and family! They were also able to receive their photos and videos via AirDrop or email, and were encouraged to post them on social media using the hashtag #SmileForBreastCancerAwareness to support the fight against breast cancer.

Throughout the month of October, the Qatar Cancer Society is partnering with various organizations across the country to raise awareness.
