Starting September 26th and throughout the month of October, Mellow Mushroom will be going pink in a big way:
This year, close to 300,000 individuals will be diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 44,000 people will die from the disease. The work to find the cures is showing progress as the breast cancer mortality rate decreased by 43% from 1989 to 2020 mainly because of improved breast cancer treatment and early detection.
"Go Pink" Cocktail Sales in October Support Komen Efforts
The "Go Pink" cocktail was created by the Mellow Mushroom beverage team to support the "Go Pink" fundraising campaign. The cocktail is a perfect balance of sweet and tart featuring Casamigos Reposado Tequila with lime and cranberry juices. It is garnished with a lemon twist and a pink ribbon shaped stir stick. Mellow Mushroom has also created breast cancer ribbon-shaped pretzels to accompany the cocktail. The "Go Pink" cocktail and ribbon-shaped pretzels will be available September 26, 2023 through October 31, 2023.
"Mellow Mushroom's long history of creativity and innovation doesn't stop at their delicious food; it extends to their culture of giving back to their communities in a generous way," said Ciarra McEachin, Vice President of Komen's Southeast region. "We're so grateful for their support of Komen and breast cancer patients across the country. When you enjoy Mellow Mushroom this fall, you'll also be helping to create a world without breast cancer - it's a win-win!"
Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has donated $1.1B to breast cancer research and supports the more than four million breast cancer survivors and those living with breast cancer in the U.S.
