The only time the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s (4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2000) Chateau Tower’s curvilinear facade—a symbol of Miami Modern architecture—has ever been any color other than white is perhaps at sunset with the sky and ocean reflecting onto its blank canvas. On Tuesday October 1, to kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Fontainebleau will light up in pink, both inside and out, for its “Bleau Goes Pink” initiative in partnership with the Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale chapter.
That evening, a special lighting ceremony and reception will take place after sunset on the poolscape. Fontainebleau Miami Beach President and Chief Operating Officer Phil Goldfarb and Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale Executive Director Cathy McCarthy will flip a ceremonial switch and turn the Chateau Tower pink with the help of 100 high-powered lighting fixtures, thanks to Southern Audio Visual.
The tower will glow pink the entire month of October from dusk to 10 pm nightly. The resort’s lobby, including Bleau Bar and the James Turrell light installation at the concierge and front desk, will also be lit pink for the evening’s festivities.
Additionally, the resort will extend its Miami Spice and Miami Spa Month savings to patrons throughout the month of October while donating a portion of the proceeds to Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale. The Lapis Spa Wellness Series will offer special programming in collaboration with Zumba Party in Pink, and for the retail-oriented, the shops at Fontainebleau will offer special apparel available for a donation to Susan G. Komen Miami/Fort Lauderdale.
