FIVE And Plastic Surgery Group Partner For #DrinkPink

Proceeds To Benefit Local Susan G. Komen Group

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness for a disease that impacts millions of people. To show support in the fight against breast cancer, FIVE and the Plastic Surgery Group have joined together to launch #DrinkPink.

During the month of October, FIVE will offer pink mimosas to restaurant patrons with proceeds benefiting the local chapter of Susan G. Komen.  

“Breast cancer is a terrible disease that unfortunately affects so many," said FIVE owner Cris Eddings.  "We hope this campaign will not only bring awareness, but will also help save lives." 

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women. It is estimated about one in eight women born in the United States will get breast cancer at some point, but it is treatable if detected early.  

“Lives are being saved every day thanks to early detection," said Dr. Jimmy Waldrop of the Plastic Surgery Group.  "We hope through campaigns like #DrinkPink we can raise awareness in the community regarding breast cancer, the value of early detection, and resources available to those affected by this disease." 

#DrinkPink will be offered at FIVE at One North Shore through the end of the month.
