SAN DIEGO – July 11, 2016 For one delectable day only, local restaurants and patrons across San Diego will participate in Susan G. Komen San Diego’s fourth annual Dine Out for the Cure on Thursday, Oct. 13. This fundraiser will allow San Diegans to enjoy a delicious meal all while supporting the fight against breast cancer.
“By enjoying a meal at participating San Diego restaurants, you will be making a difference in the lives of local women and their families affected by breast cancer,” said Laura Farmer Sherman, president & CEO, Susan G. Komen San Diego. “The money raised from this event will help take the burden off the shoulders of the women we serve who are often too weak from their treatments to make dinner for their families.”
Participating restaurants as of June 29 include: Grant Grill, Milton’s San Diego, Nicolosi’s Italian Restaurant (multiple locations), Nothing Bundt Cakes (various locations), Oceana Coastal Kitchen, Oggi’s Pizza and Brewing Co. – Mission Valley, Pielogy Pizzeria (multiple locations), Sally’s Seafood on the Water at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, with more restaurants being added weekly. Making dining plans at a participating restaurant will support San Diego breast cancer patients and help them become breast cancer survivors.

“Last year we raised $20,000, which is equivalent to almost 6,500 warm meals delivered to women struggling to put food on the table. This year, we are hoping to exceed that amount,” said Farmer Sherman. “Invite your friends and family, put on your pink and enjoy a night out that supports those who need it most.”
Participating restaurants will donate 10 to 25 percent of the day’s proceeds to Susan G. Komen San Diego to support education, free mammograms, financial and food assistance, transportation and more. Komen San Diego continues to be the County’s largest funder of free breast cancer services and support and is the only organization providing qualified women the free services they need for every step of the breast cancer journey.
