For the month of September, many local restaurants will be featuring pink desserts on their menus to support breast cancer research and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure in Kelowna.
Say “yes” to dessert guilt-free since partial proceeds from sales will be coming directly back to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation!
“You can satisfy your sweet-tooth and support a future without breast cancer,” said volunteer Run for the Cure co-director Kate DeKruif.
“Tickled Pink Desserts is a great way for restaurants and the customers they serve to give back to their community!”
The participating restaurants include:
Bonfire Grill at The Cove, La Cucina Pasteria and Nineteen Steakhouse
Cabana Grille, Christopher’s Restaurant & Lounge, La Bussola, MiMi’s Italian Grill, Minstrel Café & Bar, Olympia Greek Taverna, Organic Sunset Bistro, RauDZ Regional Table, Ricardo’s Mediterranean Kitchen, Ric’s Grill, The Bread Company, The Grill at Black Mountain Golf Course, The Rotten Grape, Twisted Tomato Kitchen, Wild Apple Restaurant & Lounge
Participating restaurants will also be identified by table cards on each table and a full listing is available on the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, BC/Yukon Region website.
The Run for the Cure in Kelowna will take place at City Park on Sunday, Oct. 2, at 10 a.m. To register, or for more information visit www.cbcf.org.
The annual Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure is the largest single-day, volunteer-led national event in Canada in support of breast cancer.
Last year, the Run for the Cure raised $33 million to fund innovative and relevant breast cancer research, education and awareness programs.
The event takes place in 59 communities across Canada.
