Take a Bite Out of Breast Cancer

Pink Jams! Announces
Second Annual Take a Bite Out of Breast Cancer

Take a Bite Out of Breast Cancer is an outreach and fundraising campaign focusing on educating Washington, DC area residents about the importance of early detection and breast cancer awareness. For the entire month of October, chefs and restaurateurs commit their establishments to helping us in our mission – reaching tens of thousands of men and women in our area. For one day, a week, or the entire month, participating restaurants also generously donate a portion of their food and beverage sales so that we can continue our work to save lives. Join us as we "take a bite" out of breast cancer!

We love our foodies!
Meet Our 2012 Ambassadors
