Carrot Top, Pinktober, Hard Rock Cafe
Hard Rock Cafes in Las Vegas, NV welcomed comedic icon and Luxor headliner, Carrot Top, to the Hard Rock Cafe strip location today in support of the brand's 13th annual PINKTOBER breast cancer awareness campaign.
Carrot Top made an appearance to show his support for the month-long PINKTOBER campaign which comes to an end today. The comedian was shopping for limited-edition merchandise which includes a PINKTOBER 2012 T-shirt, bracelet, pin and more.
Proceeds from the sale of PINKTOBER merchandise benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and The Caron Keating Foundation (U.K.) with 75 percent of the retail price of each pin and 15 percent of the retail price of other products going directly to the cause.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, is an independent not-for-profit organization committed to funding scientific research to achieve prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. In October 2012, BCRF will award $40 million to 197 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and China. With 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. For the tenth time since 2002, it has earned 4 stars from Charity Navigator. Additionally, BCRF is the only cancer organization rated an "A+" by CharityWatch.
