Eegee’s and Tryst Cafe raise funds for cancer research with pink drinks in October
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and restaurants in the valley are getting creative with drinks and cocktails to raise funds.
Tucson Sandwich Chain eegean has created a pink lemonade flavor of its famous frozen drinks. The flavor is available at stores statewide and raises funds for the University of Arizona Cancer Center.
The eegee fundraiser focuses specifically on breast cancer awareness, as the UA Cancer Center is a leader in the research, prevention and treatment of breast and ovarian cancers.
In 2021, the eegee “Drink Pink” fundraiser raised over $6,000 for the centre. Proceeds from every Pink Lemon Eegee purchased in October will be donated to benefit breast cancer research.
Specifically in the Valley, another local channel is also fundraising in October. Coffee meetinga health-focused restaurant that has locations in North Phoenix and Chandler, is running a “Pink Drink for a Cause” campaign throughout the month, donating proceeds from the sale of select pink-colored cocktails.
Some cocktail options available with the fundraiser include a Strawberry Daiquiri, Raspberry Gimlet, Pomegranate Mojito, and Prickly Pear Margarita.
Proceeds from the cocktails will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to support pediatric cancer treatment and research.
