To do its part in helping beat breast cancer, BlackFinn American Grille will host a series of happy hours each Friday in October, with proceeds benefiting various local breast cancer-related charities.

BlackFinn Think Pink Happy Hours will take place the next three Fridays, October 7, 14 and 21 from 7 – 9 p.m., with each event benefiting a different featured charity. Anyone who makes a contribution to the evening’s featured charity during the Think Pink Happy Hours will receive complimentary passed hors d’oeuvres and the opportunity to purchase special BlackFinn Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts and bracelets. 100% of the proceeds raised from the Think Pink Happy Hours and sale of Think Pink t-shirts will go to the featured charity each week.

The events culminate on Friday night, October 28 with a Think Pink Party, where attendees are encouraged to dress in pink. The charity that raises the most money during its Think Pink Happy Hour will receive an additional donation from BlackFinn.

The first Think Pink Happy Hour on October 7 will benefit Making Strides for Breast Cancer, the October 14 Happy Hour will benefit Bands Against Breast Cancer and proceeds from the October 21 Happy Hour will go to Susan G Komen for the Cure.

According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women in the United States, behind only skin cancer. Each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 deaths are attributed to the disease. Since 1985, October has been recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). The aim of NBCAM is to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer. Additional information about the National Breast Cancer Foundation is available at nationalbreastcancer.org and more information about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is available at nbcam.org.

BlackFinn American Grille is located at 4840 Big Island Drive, Suite 05, adjacent to St. Johns Town Center in the Markets at Town Center.
