During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Hilton San Francisco Union Square and the Parc 55 – A Hilton Hotel, are offering special “pink cocktails” at their dining and cocktail venues. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the cocktails will benefit the Breast Cancer Emergency Fund, dedicated to providing emergency financial assistance to low-income women and men battling breast cancer.

For the fourth consecutive year, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco will be going pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Ritz-Carlton will also be helping the BCEF provide emergency financial assistance to low-income women and men battling breast cancer via a host of unique offerings created by their hotel’s culinary team.

“BCEF is honored to once again be partnering with the Ritz-Carlton and its staff for this vital funding of our financial assistance for low income breast cancer patients and their families”, said Maria Sousa, BCEF Executive Director. “When the landmark hotel lights up pink during the month of October, it’s a wonderful symbol of the commitment of the Ritz-Carlton and its team members to our community and a stellar example of corporate-based philanthropy for those who are actively battling breast cancer.”
