PHOTOS: HARD ROCK CAFE LAS VEGAS KICKS OFF MONTH LONG PINKTOBER® INITIATIVES WITH CLAIRE SINCLAIR
Month long initiatives to Benefit American Cancer Society and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer as Part of 15th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness and Fundraising Campaign
Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip turned the building pink today in honor of breast cancer awareness by hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring PLAYBOY’s 2011 Playmate of the Year® and star of PIN UP at Stratosphere, Claire Sinclair. While at the cafe, Claire unleashed her inner artist by decorating a commemorative pink guitar, an activity that many of the bands scheduled to perform at Hard Rock Live will take part in as well. Proceeds from the auctioned guitars will benefit American Cancer Society, an organization that invests in breast cancer research to find, prevent, treat and cure the disease as well as providing free information and services to people fighting the disease and helping women get potentially lifesaving breast cancer screening tests.
Hard Rock’s 15th Annual PINKTOBER program continues throughout September and October with breast cancer awareness walks, pink fashion shows, high-energy concerts, PINK menu offerings, “PINK Sheets Rooms” and more. Guests are invited to join the fight against breast cancer at Hard Rock Cafes, Hotels and Casinos worldwide by raising awareness and funds for a cause that affects millions. Proceeds from the campaign will support research and awareness-driving efforts for various breast cancer charities around the world.
