PRESS RELEASE:

TAO GROUP HOSPITALITY CARES STRENGTHENS MISSION FOR WORLD BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

This October, Tao Group Hospitality Venues Create “Pink” Themed Food and Beverage Specials with Percentage of Proceeds Donated to the American Cancer Society

(October 2019)

Tao Group Hospitality and its charitable arm, Tao Group Hospitality Cares, announces its mission for October’s World Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once again, for the entire month of October, all of Tao Group Hospitality’s restaurant brands nationwide, including TAO Uptown, TAO Downtown, LAVO, Bodega Negra, Vandal, Beauty & Essex, Legasea, Egghead, and Feroce in New York City; TAO, LAVO and Beauty & Essex in Las Vegas; TAO, Beauty & Essex, The Highlight Room and Luchini Pizzeria & Bar in Los Angeles; TAO in Chicago; as well as nightlife brands such as Avenue, Marquee, TAO Nightclub, LAVO Nightclub, PHD Rooftop Lounge, PHD Terrace, Magic Hour, and The Fleur Room, will raise money by donating 10% of proceeds from their #DRINKPINK campaign and specially created pinkthemed food specials to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

 

Tao Group Hospitality was a leading team in 2018 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in New York and Chicago with 624 total walkers. For the first time in their 12 years of support for the American Cancer Society, Tao Group Hospitality is excited to be walking in each of their cities this year: New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

 

“The opportunity to participate in company-wide fundraising efforts, specifically raising money for cancer research, has always been one of the proudest moments for our company,” said Tao Group Hospitality co-founder Jason Strauss. “Watching the New York team participate in and lead the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk every year has been an inspiration. We are excited to finally join the walk in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Our initial team feedback has created a company-wide buzz that rivals a new venue opening, and we’re thrilled to be walking together for such a great cause.”

 

Each restaurant will offer a special menu dedicated to supporting Breast Cancer research, with 10% of proceeds from all specials being donated to the American Cancer Society. Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella and Chef/Partner Chris Santos challenged the chef team for each restaurant to create new specials that will help in Tao Group Hospitality’s fight against Breast Cancer.

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
