Six years and $76,000 later the BOHLSEN Restaurant Group and Eat, Drink and Think Pink October is still a triumph!
Last Thursday, owners of Bohlsen Restaurant Group, Michael and Kurt Bohlsen, presented a check in support raised for four of Long Islands finest. Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition along with Babylon, West Islip and Islip received a $6,000 donation as a result of their Eat, Drink & Think Pink month long campaign. This marks a grand total of $76,000 since the event began six years ago.
“We are proud to say, thanks to the patronage of our diners, we continue to host our annual Eat, Drink and Think Pink October. The purpose is to raise funds for local breast cancer coalitions and at the same time raise awareness about breast cancer prevention. The cause is close to our hearts as a family and employer... It also serves our customers well. The work these coalitions do locally is very helpful to those in the communities where we were born, raised, live and work,” says Michael Bohlsen.
For every dish or drink ordered from Prime throughout October, the group donated $1- $2 to benefit the Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition (www.hbcac.org). Each year, chefs from the group’s leading Long Island restaurants create dedicated pink-themed menu items comprised of antioxidants.
"Breast cancer organizations depend on support from the business community. We are very grateful to our friends at PRIME RESTAURANT for their support and long term partnership," HBCAC President, Karen Miller.
The November 14th event took place at Monsoon: Asian Kitchen and Lounge in Babylon Village. HBCAC advocates took part in the evening and were able to enjoy the great food, atmosphere and company.
