“Shake It for the Cure” is the brainchild of Mix Lounge and 2nd Floor Restaurant owners Sam Nativo and Mike Bienz.
“I’ve wanted to do this for years,” said Sam, who has organized the month-long event to raise money for the The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.
“All of a sudden it’s late and October is here, but this year I’m going to do it.
Beginning this Thursday, October 2nd The Mix and 2nd Floor will be offering the “TaTa Tini” a pink martini made with Three Olive Marilyn Monroe strawberry-flavored vodka.
Anyone who would like to be supportive is asked to wear pink when they go to the 2nd Floor or The Mix to enjoy a delicious TaTa Tini.
You can also show your support and talent by sending a video of yourself shaking it for the cure to SNJR66@aol.com. Be creative!
It’s all in fun for a serious cause.
This month-long event is for everyone. You can be a breast cancer survivor, a friend or an activist.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from TaTa Tinis sold during the month of October will be donated to The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Breast Center at Monmouth Medical Center. There will be pink t-shirts for sale with proceeds also going to the center.
