Austin: The Formula One paddock recognised the generosity of Best Water Technology (BWT) today as Europe’s leading water technology company donated $150,000 to breast cancer charities in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
BWT’s Chief Marketing Officer, Lutz Hübner, was joined on the podium of the Circuit of The Americas by Sahara Force India’s Chief Operating Officer, Otmar Szafnauer, and the team’s drivers, Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon, to make the donation. The funds will be used to support breast cancer charities, including the team’s charity partner, Breast Cancer Care.
Lutz Hübner, Chief Marketing Officer of BWT: “Everybody at BWT applauds the work done by Formula One to raise awareness of breast cancer on a global stage. When we heard about the idea to ‘turn Austin pink’ we felt it was important to get behind the cause and pledge our support to all the people around the world who are affected by breast cancer.”
Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Operating Officer of Sahara Force India: “It’s been fantastic to see Austin turned pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s a cause that we have been supporting this season through our partnership with Breast Cancer Care and we are hugely grateful to BWT for making such a generous donation.”
