October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  In honor of this important cause, we have  many local area restaurants joining in the fight. We have the list of where you can wine, dine and help the fight against breast cancer.
Dandelion —  to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Chef Piscitelli has created the ‘Proper Pink Scones’: Dandelion’s homemade scones topped with festive pink sprinkles and served with Devonshire cream, lemon curd and raspberry jam. Proceeds from every order of the Dandelion’s Proper Pink Scones will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation,and the scones will be available throughout the month of October during brunch, and Afternoon tea on Saturday and Sunday.
Dish & Dram— they are highlighting wines from female-owned and operated wineries on its exclusive monthly Kensington Wine Club list as well as available for all restaurant guests on Wine Down Wednesdays throughout the month of October. Also featured will be the restaurant’s local, woman-owned and operated Southeastern Roastery Coffee. A percent of these wine and coffee sales will be donated to The Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Osteria Morini and Nicoletta Italian Kitchen —  will feature the pop-of-pink Royal Blush cocktail from October 1st through October 31st. The Royal Blush was created by beverage director Rob DeFelice, and is made with vodka, fresh, muddled mint, lime zest and juice, morello cherry, and crisp prosecco. The rose-hued cocktail is $13, and a portion of the proceeds from the Royal Blush cocktail will benefit the American Medical Women’s Association’sBreast Cancer Task Force.

The raspberry macarons featuring fresh raspberry puree enfolded into the center filling, encased by delicate almond and meringue shells, will be sold in bags of 6 for $5. Parc will be donating a $1 from the sale of each bag to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization that provides programs and services to help people whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer.
Petite Loulou —  in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the petit piece of Paris will be painting its pastries pink and donating funds to support sister survivors and families battling the disease.
