    Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK in Harvard Square
    Breast Cancer Community Awareness
    and Fundraising Campaign
    from July 5th through August 31st 2010
    ICECREAM5.JPGMembers of the Harvard Square Business Association (HSBA) have joined together for the 5th year in a row for a Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraising Campaign featuring PINK themed window displays, PINK DRINKS and PINK SHOPPING opportunities from July 5th through August 31st 2010.
    The first Think Pink, Drink Pink, Shop Pink event was held in 2006 when Kari Kueltzer, owner of Grendel’s Den and Pam Giller, a Grendel’s Bartender, decided to host a fundraiser to help sponsor Pam’s entry into the The Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. Pam’s team “Breast Man Walking” in support of Pam’s father. Kari and Pam concluded that Pink Drinks were a great summery way to raise funds and awareness and they brought the idea to the HSBA, who in turn asked all the Harvard Square restaurants to participate, and the enormously successful Think Pink, Drink Pink, Shop Pink community-wide event developed.
    Now in its fifth year, the HSBA is pleased to announce its Think Pink, Drink Pink, Shop Pink line-up featuring old favorites such asGrendel’s Den’s Elaine’s Lime Rickey” and new entries Hippo_Pink.jpg
    Each summer our businesses renew their commitment to “Getting Pink for the Cause” by designing new pink items and promotions. With each Pink Drink, or menu item, or product/service ordered our businesses make donations to Breast Cancer charities including Dana Farber, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn Hospital. At the end of the Think Pink season we tally up the funds raised by the community and we are always impressed by the enthusiasm of our HSBA members, as well as the incredible reception from the press and the public.
