Babalu Launches Susan G. Komen Fundraiser
Restaurant Donates Portion of Cinnamon Bread Pudding Sales Starting Oct. 1
Beginning on Oct. 1, all eight locations of Babalu are launching an ongoing partnership with Susan G. Komen in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The restaurants will feature an all-pink menu and donate $1 from each sale of their signature dessert, the cinnamon bread pudding. The goal of this partnership is to increase awareness of the disease, support families that are emotionally affected, save lives by ensuring all people receive the care they need and find breakthroughs to prevent and cure breast cancer.
“Giving back to the communities we serve is a very important part of Babalu’s mission, and we’re thrilled to be partnering up with an organization that has made such an incredible impact,” says Babalu CEO Abe Ruiz. “This fundraiser begins in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it will continue on throughout the year as we’re committed to help make a difference.”
Known for its Latin-inspired tapas menu, fabulous cocktails made with freshly squeezed juices and a fun, hospitable atmosphere, Babalu believes sharing great food leads to the sharing of great times. The restaurant’s house-made cinnamon bread pudding is served with Patron XO chantilly cream, Kahlua caramel and strawberries for the perfect finale to a Spanish-meets-Southern-style meal.
With eight locations throughout the Southeast, all Babalu restaurants offer lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. For more information or to find the nearest location, visit www.eatBABALU.com.
