RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Sept. 14, 2016– The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month in October in a variety of ways while supporting Desert Cancer Foundation. From the Jazz in Pink concert to other exclusive specials at the spa and throughout the resort, money will be raised to combat cancer. In addition, resort employees are actively participating to raise awareness by participating Desert Cancer Foundation’s 10th Annual Paint El Paseo Pink Walk.
The specials available during the entire month of October, created specifically to support Desert Cancer Foundation with proceeds, include Pamper Yourself Pink spa treatments; Pink Drinks purchased at the restaurant, lounge and pool; and “create your own tie dye T-shirt for a cause,” which include The Westin logo.

A highlight of the month-long celebration is the “Grooves at The Westin” concert on Friday, Oct. 29, featuring the band Jazz in Pink, an all-female world-class jazz super-group. A portion of the ticket proceeds from this show will be provided to Desert Cancer Foundation. As a Halloween weekend performance, guests are invited to attend in costume. The concert takes place in the outdoor Masters Plaza, weather permitting, at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $40 to $85.
