- Maverick Southern Kitchens, which operates Slightly North of Broad, High Cotton and the Old Village Post House, is donating $1 to MUSC's Hollings Cancer Center for every glass of Segura Viudas Sparkling Rosé purchased in October.
- Fish is also pouring pink drinks for the Center, donating $1 for every pink cocktail and glass of pink wine sold during its Wednesday, Oct. 23 happy hour, which runs from 4:30 p.m.-8 p.m. As extra incentive to support the cause, the first 10 guests to arrive will receive a free glass of sparkling wine.
- Cupcake DownSouth has created a special “Cupcake for the Cure,” described as “a chocolate cake with cream cheese icing and a pink sugar heart.” For every cupcake sold, the bakery will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Customers who make an additional $1 donation will also receive a $1 coupon for use on future visits.
