In support of breast cancer awareness month, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa has started its month-long campaign. Last year, the property raised over $57,000 to help fund research for the prevention and a cure for breast cancer. Most of the funds will once again be raised in support of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk as the $50,000 Pin Premier Sponsor. The walk is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20 at Tampa’s Amalie Arena.
Throughout the month of October, the retail shop will be selling limited edition bracelets, pink guitar pins, men’s ties, socks, slippers and other merchandise with a portion of the proceeds going to ACS.
The restaurants will also be supporting the cause this month with Rise Kitchen & Bakery offering pink themed pastries including cupcakes and cookies.
The Rez Grill will also be hosting a Pinktober Dinner on Thursday, October 25, featuring Beefeater London Pink Gin with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society. Finally, Hard Rock Cafe will host “Hard Rock Rock ‘n’ Roll Trivia” on Tuesday, October 23, at 7 p.m. to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. It’s open to the public on a first come, first served basis. There’s a $10 entry fee per person and Hard Rock will match the dollar amount raised from entry fees and donate it to the American Cancer Society.
