Brasserie Louis, located at 101 Market Street in Lewisburg, will host a month-long Pink Party in October to benefit the Ta-Ta Trot. As the largest 5K run/walk event in the Susquehanna Valley, the Ta-Ta Trot is working with Brasserie Louis to raise money to support breast health awareness with proceeds donated to Evangelical Community Hospital’s Thyra M. Humphreys Center for Breast Health, Geisinger’s Marie Lamey Fund, and the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.
Throughout the month of October, Executive Chef Jeremy Coleman will be creating special dishes with pink components such as pink potatoes, pomegranates, pink salt, beets, and watermelon, just to name a few. Ten percent of all nightly specials, all featuring a pink component on the plate, will be donated to the Ta-Ta Trot.
To formally kick off the Pink Party, members of the Ta-Ta Trot Committee will be joining Brasserie Louis on Friday, October 3, 2014 from 8 – 9:30 pm after the Cards of Hope Fundraiser at Fero Vineyards and Winery; which also benefits the Ta-Ta Trot. This formal kickoff party will feature pink drink and dinner specials with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Ta-Ta Trot as well.
Executive Chef Jeremy will also be participating in the Cookin’ Men Event on behalf of the Ta-Ta Trot. Cookin’ Men is hosted by Evangelical Community Hospital and will be held at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club on Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 6 – 8pm.
The Ta-Ta Trot, founded in 2010, has raised over $237,000 for breast health awareness. About one in every eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2014, an estimated 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed. Join us to help our communities and the women in Pennsylvania to promote breast health awareness.
