Final week to Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK

Each summer, our members renew their commitment to our “Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK”  breast cancer awareness campaign by designing new pink items and creating new pink promotions.  With each pink drink, menu item, or product/service ordered, proceeds are donated to various breast cancer charities including The Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn HospitalDana Farber and others.  At the end of the campaign, when the funds are tallied, we are always touched by the outpouring of financial support from our members and the public.  The 8th Annual "Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK" campaign runs from July 10th until August 31st.
