NOLA GOES PINK (NGP) PRESS CONFERENCE- FRIDAY
Top Chef Event to Benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, La. - Join dozens of chefs in pink attire along with Mark Romig (NOTMC), Kelly Schulz (NOMCVB), Lisa Plunkett (Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans), Celebrity Chef Susan Spicer (Bayona and Mondo) and Executive Chef Vinny Russo (The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans) for the official kick-off press conference for NOLA Goes Pink (NGP) 2012 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. this Friday, September 28, 2012!

Throughout the month of October, New Orleans' top chefs will wear pink chef's coats and designate an existing healthy menu item or create a NOLA Goes Pink (NGP) dish with ten percent (10%) of the proceeds of each sale going directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans. Get hungry for the cure! In a city renowned for its sauces and spices, menus will feature healthy alternatives. Wait staff at other participating NGP restaurants will wear official Susan G. Komen for the Cure pink ribbons and the same pink ribbons will be made into decals, so that patrons will know that they are dining in an establishment that supports raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

NOLA Goes Pink (NGP) is the only month-long, city-wide, top chef-driven promotion in support of breast cancer awareness in the United States, so get hungry for the cure! Chefs and restaurateurs can still sign-up for this second annual event.
