Blackhouse Turns To Pinkhouse In Support Of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and, in support, Living Ventures BLACKHOUSE Restaurants will become PINK for the duration. Each year Breast Cancer Care decoratively "hijacks" a famous landmark and turns it pink. These have included... the Houses of Parliament, the Eiffel Tower and Mr Obama's residence. If the White House can do it, then so can BLACKHOUSE!
From the 1st of October right through to the 31st, seven of the BLACKHOUSE restaurants will officially be PINKHOUSE and will support Breast Cancer Care with events and ongoing initiatives throughout the month.
All guests dining will have the opportunity to donate to the charity, by a discretionary £1 being added to each table's bill throughout October.
Additionally, 25p from every glass sold of rosé wine or pink Champagne from a specially selected list will go to the charity. So, if PINK is your tipple, it's for a very good cause!
Regular diners will notice a few "not so subtle" differences on arrival at a "PINKHOUSE" restaurant. The servers will be sporting pink ties and pin badges. All the menus will be pink so it will be pretty hard to miss what going on!
A Living Ventures spokesperson said: "The creation of PINKHOUSE has been a unique opportunity for us to be involved with something as worthwhile as Breast Cancer Care.
"There has already been so much excitement about PINKHOUSE from guests and staff alike. We hope to have a lot of fun, whilst aiming to raise a large amount of money for this amazing charity."
BLACKHOUSE restaurants are known for throwing a good party so it is no surprise that there will be some unusual Pinkhouse events to raise additional funds.
