slide_3A luxe Zen palace perched high above New York City’s Columbus Circle, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York is a glorious escape in the center of Manhattan. With the re-launch of the Spa for a Year program, guests have the opportunity to keep coming back to the spa every month for a little urban renewal. In support of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Spa for a Year is a raffle that entitles the winner to a two-hour treatment every month for twelve months. Starting on October 1st, guests will be able to buy a Long Life Raffle Token at the reception desk for $50 a piece. If people would like a little more luck (and tokens) on their side, they can purchase 10 tokens for $450 and 20 tokens for $900. All of the proceeds will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). According to Denise Vitello, spa director at Mandarin Oriental, New York, this promotion helped raise $3,500 for the BCRF last year. “We are very excited to be continuing this program in support of breast cancer research,” she states “Last year, guests bought tokens in bulk to give to loved ones, friends, and breast cancer survivors.”’s Pretty in Pink Breast Cancer Campaign Benefits Both Spa Enthusiasts and the Fight Against Breast Cancer
