The Power of Pink

In case you’ve been under a rock for the last few years, you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here’s what you can do this weekend to help the charitable cause.

The Fontainebleau Miami Beach gets into the Breast Cancer Awareness spirit.

1. Roll For The Cure
Who knew being an advocate could also delicious? Chef Subin Chankesorn of SAIA Sushi has been a longtime activist when it comes to breast cancer causes. This year, he’s hosting Pink Roll for a Cure, which means he’s created a special dish in honor of the cause: a delectable roll composed of shrimp, mango, bell pepper, spicy crab salad and topped with pink miso uzu sauce. Proceeds from the dish go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and its efforts in breast cancer research. SAIA Sushi, 999 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954.302.5252, saissushi.com

2. Bleau Goes Pink
The Fontainebleau is going pink for the entire month of October with a slew of promotions that will all directly support the Susan G. Komen Foundation. All signature restaurants will extend their Miami Spice menus through the end of the month and Lapis Spa will offer two $99 spa treatments. A portion of the proceeds from those initiatives will go to the SGKF. To further show its support, the hotel's facade will be illuminated in pink for the entire month of October.
