The beauty industry has been championing it since 1993, NFL teams pink up their gear in its honor, the Empire State building goes rosy for the cause – so it’s only fitting that New York’s dining circles get involved with October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Participating B.R. Guest restaurants will be offering special dessert items during October, with 75% of the proceeds from each decadent morsel being donated to the Breast Treatment Task Force, a local nonprofit that facilitates free mammograms, diagnostic follow-up, surgeries, and cancer treatment for patients without health insurance in NYC. That means the desserts are calorie free, right? Maybe not calorie free, but certainly guilt free.
Each dessert will be priced at $10 and served at both lunch and dinner at these BR Guest locations:
Dessert: Pink Velvet Cake with Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. Ruby Foo’s
I think tonight, instead of carelessly reaching for a calorie-ridden late-night snack to soak up the evening’s imbibery, I’ll be noshing on a feel-good dessert, prepared by an award-wining chef.
