In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many hotels across the country are joining the cause with pink-themed promotions and fundraising events. Here are a handful of rosy delights and destinations to consider.
At the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, customers can dine on sweet, conscientious confections, such as the pink lemon roulade cake filled with strawberry-lemon mousse. Ten percent of the price each dessert sold will go to Susan G. Komen Puget Sound, the Puget Sound area affiliate of Susan Komen for the Cure.
Across the country at Four Seasons Hotel New York, the Fruitful Cause cocktail benefitting Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is made with Moët & Chandon rosé, fresh lime and grapefruit juices, Bootlegger vodka and locally distilled Greenhook Ginsmiths Beach Plum Liqueur.
Guests can also raise a glass down in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., at the il Lugano all-suite luxury property. Bartenders at the in-house restaurant da Campo Osteria have combined watermelon liqueur with blueberry vodka, fresh squeezed lemon and a strawberry to create the Pink Lugano, with $2 of each libation sold benefitting Susan G. Komen.
The Pink Apple Spice Manicure and Pedicure at the Seagate Hotel and Spa in Delray Beach is calorie-free but just as indulgent, featuring a lower-leg apple spice rub and hot stone massage with essential oils. Ten percent of proceeds are donated toward the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign.
Over at the Omni Bedford Springs resort in Bedford Springs, Pa., hotel employees have been putting their heels to the pavement at the local Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk, where last year the Omni Army group raised more than $16,300.
The 3.1-mile walk concludes at the resort, where visitors can also learn about an in-house raffle to benefit breast cancer awareness and a "Pink on the Links" golf outing.
