Berry-Licious Pancake to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Cure

Berry-Licious Pancake to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Cure

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and a popular eatery has created a special pancake to help raise money for a cure.

Hash House a Go Go created a 'cake for a cure made with berries that some studies have suggested have cancer-fighting phytochemicals, including raspberries, cranberries and strawberries. The pancakes also have cherries and pomegranates which are high in antioxidants.

The restaurant will donate $1 from the sale of every 'cake for the cure through the entire month of October to a group of Las Vegans who will be walking in a breast cancer fundraising walk.

"It's great to be able to assist Las Vegans participating in Susan G. Komen's 3-Day walk with our very berry-licious 'Cake for the Cure pancake," said Jim Rees, owner of Hash House A Go Go. "Our Chef created a delicious and health-conscious pancake for everyone to enjoy."

Town Square Restaurants Supporting Kids With Cancer in September

Town Square Restaurants Supporting Kids With Cancer in September

Several Town Square restaurants are showing their philanthropic side this September by partnering with Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and offering a way for the public to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

A portion of sales from various items on the menus will go to Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that funds the Children's Specialty Center. It is the only nonprofit pediatric cancer outpatient treatment center in the state of Nevada.

Unfortunately, families throughout southern Nevada learn everyday that cancer is a life-changing event.  Many will also learn that the health insurance they thought would cover their children's diagnosis doesn't begin to address all of their needs. Those without any health insurance will see their options for treatment severely limited.
