I’ll admit it—I’m a grump about most breast cancer fundraising events. I’m a grump about the high overhead and I’m a grump about all of the pinkwashers that find their way into the mix.
But I am thrilled to be genuinely excited about an upcoming event hosted by Breast Cancer Action, which promises to be an evening of culinary delight, with nary a pinkwasher in sight.
In fact, I don’t think you’ll ever see a pink ribbon the same way again.
If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area on October 20th, I hope you can join me:
Enjoy a multi-course dinner prepared by executive chefs from premiere Bay Area restaurants, including Millennium Restaurant’s Eric Tucker, Locavore’s Jonathan Merritt and Poquito’s Richard Vila. Be deliciously entertained by a one-of-a-kind performance by The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. And don’t miss exciting silent auction items from Jardinière, Americano, Cliff House and others.
Thursday, October 20, 2011 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Horatius, San Francisco, CA
