National Breast Cancer Awareness is celebrating 25 years this October. The good news is that this organization has been providing awareness, information, education and support about breast cancer for a very long time. The bad news is that still 25 years later a cure hasn’t been found. Great strides have been made though and will continue to be made as organizations, businesses and individuals contribute and support the fight against breast cancer. With October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (don’t forget to get your mammograms ladies!) two Houston area restaurants are pledging this support to this worthy cause.
RA Sushi will be honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month with ONEHOPE Pink Roll and donation to National Breast Cancer Foundation
In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, RA Sushi’s Highland Village and CITYCENTRE locations will be offering a wine and sushi special to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation® (NBCF). From Saturday, Oct. 1 to Monday, Oct. 31, RA Sushi will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of the ONEHOPE Wine and Pink Roll combination to the Foundation.
The combo includes a glass of ONEHOPE California Chardonnay and the Pink Roll, which features shrimp, kani kama crab mix and sriracha combined with lettuce, avocado and cucumber wrapped in pink soy paper and served with a pink ribbon of strawberry sauce.
The ONEHOPE Wine and Pink Roll special will be offered for $15 at RA Sushi’s Highland Village and CITYCENTRE locations.
CITYCENTRE: 12860 Queensbury / 713.331.2792
Highland Village: 3908 Westheimer / 713.621.5800
The NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early cancer detection and to provide mammograms to those in need. ONEHOPE is a California wine company that donates half of its profits to a variety of causes, including the fight against breast cancer. ONEHOPE Wine’s award-winning portfolio is produced and bottled by Rob Mondavi Jr. in Napa, Calif.
