NOLA Goes Pink chefs present final check to Susan G. Komen

New Orleans, La. - This Friday at 1:00 p.m., NOLA Goes Pink chefs and restaurateurs will present a final check for their efforts to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research to Susan G. Komen New Orleans during their annual Salute to Survivors luncheon. Join us this Friday as the chefs and restaurateurs reveal the final tally, which exceeded their goal, on behalf of the culinary community of New Orleans!

NOLA Goes Pink was the first city-wide, month-long, chef-driven event to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. Chefs from thirty-six (36) restaurants across the metropolitan area donned pink chefs coats and created healthy menus for the entire month of October (2011) with ten (10) percent of the proceeds of each sale being allocated to Susan G. Komen New Orleans. Ritz-Carlton Executive Chef Vinny Russo appeared on the Today Show in October of 2011 with Hoda Kotb to promote the citywide event and show the world that the New Orleans' culinary community cares!

The luncheon's keynote speaker is NBC's Hoda Kotb and the master of ceremonies is WWL-TV's Karen Swensen. Information on the Salute to Survivors luncheon can be found at this link: http://komenneworleans.org/. On Friday, NOLA Goes Pink and Susan G. Komen New Orleans will announce their plans for the second annual event to be held in October of 2012.

WHO: NOLA Goes Pink Chefs and Susan G. Komen New Orleans

WHAT: NOLA Goes Pink Chefs Present FINAL Check to Susan G. Komen New Orleans

WHEN: FRIDAY, APRIL 27th at 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: Komen's Salute to Survivors Lunch at City Park's Pavilion of the Two Sisters (http://www.neworleanscitypark.com/mapofpark.html)
