Pinktober at Sonesta

All over the US, Sonesta has gone pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Earlier this month we shared some of the food and beverage specials being served up to help raise money and awareness toward finding a cure, but we have so much more happening for Pinktober!

A visit to Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island in October offers a “Think Pink” experience in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, starting with the logo on the main entrance illuminating with a pink glow. Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island will be honoring survivors, remembering those lost to the disease, and supporting the progress in defeating breast cancer by offering its guests unique ways to encourage fundraising for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Book the best available rate and qualify for the “Think Pink” package, which features a $20 donation to the Foundation for each night stayed and a 10 percent discount on food. To book, visit the resort online.

The resort is also featuring an honorary “pink table” at its popular onsite restaurant, Heyward’s. 10 percent of proceeds raised from all meals at this table in October will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  $1 from every “Think Pink” specialty cocktail available at all dining outlets will be donated. Cocktails include the below:

  • Tickled Pink – a delightful mixture of gin, muddled cucumber, fresh lemon, simple syrup and a touch of cranberry splash
  • Strawberry Smash – a fruity combination of citrus vodka, elderflower liquor, fresh lemon and muddled strawberry topped with a dash of soda
  • Raspberry Lemon Drop – citrus vodka paired with Chambord, muddled raspberry, fresh lemon, simple syrup and soda
