Suncadia Resort Partners With Susan G. Komen To Honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Susan G. Komen Foundation states that in 2013, it estimates that there will be 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 64,640 new cases of in situ breast cancer cases for women in the U.S. The statistics are staggering, but the battle to cure breast cancer wages on.

Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Wash. is partnering with Susan G. Komen to help raise money to find a cure. Suncadia has created a Pink Room in The Lodge featuring pink walls, lamps, bedding, bathrobes, tablecloths, towels, coffee mugs and much more. Guests who book the Pink Room will receive complimentary pink cupcakes and a bottle of pink sparkling wine. In addition, from 8 to 9 p.m. each evening, Suncadia’s Fifty-6 Degrees will be featuring a Pink Hour offering a selection of pink cocktails including a Magenta Cosmo, Pink French 75, Pommery Pop and Blanc de Noir pink sparkling wine.

Suncadia is donating all the proceeds from its Pink Room and 50 percent of the proceeds from the pink cocktails to Susan G. Komen.

Komen was founded in 1982, launching the global breast cancer movement. Today, it is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
