Each summer, members of the Harvard Square community renew their commitment to their breast cancer campaign, Think PINK, Drink PINK, Shop PINK by designing new pink items and promotions. With each pink drink, menu item, or product/service ordered, establishments make donations to breast cancer charities including The Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn Hospital, the Susan G. Komen Foundation and The Breast Man Walking Team in the Komen 3 Day.
While thinking, drinking and shopping PINK in Harvard Square, we hope you enjoy the pink lights adorning the trees in Degugliemo Plaza on Brattle Street, the pink flower baskets gracing historic Winthrop Park and the lovely pink flower boxes aligning Brattle and JFK Streets.
In addition to the PINK promotions listed below, Harvest Restaurant hosted a dinner on July 11th inspired by the PINK Campaign. Proceeds from this four course meal were donated to The Hoffman Breast Center at Mount Auburn Hospital.
