While October is the official breast cancer awareness month, local restaurants are starting to gather support this month with special events.
The Real Men Wear Pink campaign is taking over the Hilton West Palm Beach through Oct. 27. When you order from the special pink menu, proceeds from the items—both food and drinks—benefit the Real Men Wear Pink campaign and the American Cancer Society.

The other specials are from the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach, where a portion of the proceeds from sales of pink frose (pictured) will support Glam-A-THON. This organization assists underfunded women undergoing breast cancer treatment.
The Conrad is also hosting a Beating Breast Cancer Benefit Dinner on Sept. 27. It’s a progressive dinner, which is something different. Diners start in the hotel’s Terra Mare venue with frosé and beach views, then cocktails and bites in the Atlas Cocktail Lounge, followed by music and dishes from Executive Chef Jorge Ramos in the penthouse. What a great idea! Tickets are $125, and all proceeds will benefit Glam-A-THON. Get your tickets here.
Eating Toojay’s cake helps Feeding Florida
During September, every slice of cake you order at a Toojay’s gives $1 to Feeding Florida during Hunger Action Month. You can also offer to round up your check, with that money also going to Feeding Florida.
We’re thinking that eating a slice of this moist coconut cake would be a yummy way to contribute to this cause!
