Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2016
Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room and Above SIXTY Beverly Hills will host a month long breast cancer awareness and fundraising campaign beginning May 1, 2016. In honor of owner Ron Marino’s mother, Janet Marino, both venues will donate 100% of the profits from their specialty cocktail, F CANCER, to AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer.
Last summer Marino’s mother was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer during a routine mammogram. Although shocked and devastated, she immediately began to fight back. The remainder of her year consisted of countless hospital visits accompanied by weekly rounds of vigorous treatment. With the support of her family, and a fantastic team of doctors and nurses, Janet officially reached remission in January of 2016. Just a few months later, Marino learned his good friend, Toni Vlaovich, had also been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. After facing a grueling 7-month battle, Vlaovich now has her sights on helping raise money and awareness by participating in AVON 39’s challenge this upcoming September. Caulfield’s and Above SIXTY will donate directly to Toni’s AVON 39 fundraising campaign in honor of Janet Marino.
AVON 39 The Walk To End Breast Cancer is the largest fundraising event for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. Since its launch in 2003, more than 207,000 participants have trekked 6,868,000 miles and raised $550,000,000 in the fight to end breast cancer. Funds raised at each event provide direct impact locally, and help ensure that care and research programs nationwide have adequate resources to make the most progress possible.
“What many people don’t realize is that once someone’s diagnosed with breast cancer, and lucky enough to beat it, they have to live every day knowing it may come back again,” says owner Ron Marino. “This is a reality not only for my mother and Toni, but for many women, men and families around the world. We may not be able to eliminate breast cancer entirely, but myself, and the entire team at Caulfield’s and Above SIXTY, are honored to support the cause.”
With generous product donations provided by Corralejo Tequila, Marino and his team created a specialty cocktail—aptly named F CANCER— to raise awareness and funding for the cause. Mixed with Corralejo Tequila, Triple Sec, prickly pear puree, mango, and lime juice, the drink is shaken and served over ice with a salted half rim. F CANCER is available for purchase at both Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room and Above SIXTY for the entire month of May.
Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room and Above SIXTY are located in the SIXTY Hotel at 9360 Wilshire Blvd. Beverly Hills, California 90212. To learn more about AVON 39 please visit AVON39.org.
