The Summit Lifestyle Center is going pink throughout October in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention. Show your support for breast cancer awareness by joining Go Pink at The Summit in a series of events including a Pink Pumpkin Fall Festival and Farmers Market, a Corks and Cleavage Wine Walk and Restaurant Week in addition to other month-long events.
To kick things off, throughout the month of October for every “Like” that The Summit receives on their Facebook page, a $1 donation will be made to the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
On Saturday, October 13 The Summit invites families to the Pink Pumpkin Fall Festival and Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Highlights will include a youth fall fashion show, pink pumpkins, a coloring contest, spooky stories, face painting, guessing games and an autumn harvest photo scene. Guests can enjoy food and drinks from The Tuscan Tomato, local food trucks and wine from L’uva Bella Wine Gallery. Activities are individually priced from $1 to $5, or passes for children ages 5 and up are $10. All proceeds benefit the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
A Farmers Market during the Pink Pumpkin Fall Festival event will feature fresh, local fall produce including grapes, apples, corn, potatoes, garlic, onions and squash. Just in time for the holidays, fresh chicken, eggs and local honey will also be available for purchase through local independent family owned farm, Rise and Shine Farms.
The Corks & Cleavage Wine Walk on Sunday, October 14 invites participants to sip wine from L’uva Bella Wine Gallery while enjoying special store activities, music and entering to win prizes. The event will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. and the cost is $20 per person, with $5 from each ticket sale to benefit the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
Restaurant Week takes place Monday, Oct. 15 through Sunday, Oct. 21, with The Tuscan Tomato offering 50 percent of the proceeds from the Pink Coconut Cake to benefit the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund. On Oct. 19, Wasabi Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar will donate 10 percent of all sales to the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
Throughout the month, shoppers will be able to purchase pink paper bras at select locations around The Summit to show their support for breast cancer awareness, with proceeds benefitting the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund. Other month-long events include a Garden of Hope in the Pink Plaza, sponsored by Moana Nursery, giving visitors the opportunity to write a message of love and healing to honor those who have been touched by cancer.
Benefitting from much of the month’s events, the Renown Health Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund helps to ease the financial and emotional burden on uninsured and under-insured breast cancer patients throughout northern Nevada. Joel Muller, Vice President of the Renown Health Foundation, shares, “Our patient assistance fund benefits those in our area who are battling cancer while struggling with financial hardships. These dollars provide desperately needed prescription, care and travel expenses for our patients. Renown Health is grateful to The Summit for its help.”
