Take a Bite out of Breast Cancer this October

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year, breast cancer awareness is served on a plate in Washington, DC. For the entire month, chefs and restaurants are donating a portion of their sales to Take A Bite out of Breast Cancer and supporting Pink Jams!, an outreach and fundraising campaign focusing on early detection in young women under 40 years old. There are more than a dozen establishments in the D.C. area that have signed on and they have enlisted the help of local food bloggers to get the word out. They have been partnered with different restaurants on different nights:
Other participating restaurants include Proof on Sunday October 2nd, Hank’s Oyster Bar (Alexandria location on October 3-4 and DC restaurant October 4-5), Piccolo Restaurant (October 12th), Madam’s Organ (October 27th) or Bankok Joe’s. As for me, I have signed on to be the Ambassador at Luna Grill and Diner. The owners, who have a personal connection to the cause, have kindly agreed to donate 25% of sales every Tuesday in October. I will be there on October 11th and 18th and I hope you will too! 😉
