The month of October has arrived, and with it all the pink gear. Probably the most jarring reminder that this month is for the Cure is seeing the splashes of pink colors on the NFL players’ jerseys, but you’ll see pink everywhere this month if you look. October is the biggest month of fundraisers for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and several restaurants are getting in on the action to raise money for breast cancer research.
We’ll begin with Tijuana Flats, as theirs is unique from the others on this list. Tijuana Flats offers two ways to help raise money for the Cure this month. For starters, you can buy a bottle of Just in Queso Hot Sauce to “add fire to the fight.” A bottle costs $5, and Tijuana Flats will donate $3 from every bottle purchased to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Alternatively, you can “make it pink” by ordering your meal with a pink tortilla. The pink tortilla costs $1 extra, and the revenue surplus will also be donated. You’ll be helping those battling breast cancer, while also enjoying a taco with a cool pink shell.
The other restaurants offering fundraisers for the Cure this month are all under the same banner of Lux Restaurants. These restaurants include Binkley’s, Broad Ripple Tavern, Elbow Room Pub, Meridian Restaurant, and Nickel Plate Bar & Grill. Come in every Tuesday in October (October 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29) with flyers and Lux Restaurants will donate 15% of your meal to Susan G. Komen.
While each restaurant’s donation and rules may differ, the general idea is to download and print off this flyer and bring it to any of the participating restaurants between 11:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. on the Tuesdays of October. Every little bit helps in this fight for the Cure, and you’ll be doing your part while enjoying a great meal at any of these quality restaurants.
