Pretty In Pink at Knott’s For the Cure

Have you been to Knott’s lately? If you have, you may have noticed a lot of pink and hearts decorating the park. No, it’s not for Valentine’s Day, but for something even more special and important. Knott’s Berry Farm is proudly partnering up with Susan G. Komen Orange County for the second year in a row to offer a very special Pink Ticket” through March 27th, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Susan G Komen Orange County, your local breast health organization helping to serve women and save lives.

At the kick off event for Knott’s Pink for the Cure,  we were able to honor an amazing fellow blogger and dear friend, Jaime Jenkins of Polka Dots on Parade, who’s currently fighting breast cancer and is a beautiful, positive woman! She is such a ray of sunshine and brings joy and happiness wherever she goes. Her strength and bright spirit has inspired many of us; her smile will light up the room, her hugs will lift your spirit with how powerful they are, her energy and enthusiasm is contagious.

“Pink Tickets”

Through March 27, Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen Orange County are offering special “Pink Tickets” (order online) and a limited edition of specially designed Knott’s for the Cure “pink” merchandise. The merchandise is super cute and very affordable.

At the kickoff event, many of the amazing women who are Pink Warriors, survivors of breast cancer, rode on the Jaguar ride at Knott’s.  Many of these courageous ladies will fight every day of their life to make it through this. Their strength and positivity amazes and inspires me. I just love Jaime’s contagious smile here. It is just full of pure joy! 🙂

Mimi’s Power of Pink: Rooted in Hope + 2 $25 Gift Certificates Giveaway


As I am sure everyone is well aware of by now, that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Mimi’s Cafe and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) are teaming up this month to create and spread awareness for breast cancer. This past Monday, on October 1st, I was honored to partake in the kickoff of this years campaign at a pink ribbon tying ceremony at Mimi’s Cafe. Most of us know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease: whether it be a mother, sister, wife, cousin, aunt, friend, or perhaps you yourself are a survivor or are currently fighting breast cancer. I am teaming up with Mimi’s Cafe to help kickoff and support their Power of Pink campaign.

Every Mimi’s Cafe across the nation had their pink ribbon tying ceremony at the exact same time.

Toast to Mimi’s Power of Pink campaign.

Mimi’s introduces two new drinks during the month of October – Sparkling Pink Passion Mimosa and Pink Passion Sparkler. I got to try these out, and boy are they delicious! I love anything with passion fruit in it, so these drinks did not dissapoint. It also makes me feel good knowing that a portion of the proceeds from these drinks will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Here’s what’s happening at Mimi’s Cafe during the month of October and what YOU can do to help:

Each Mimi’s Cafe will have a Giving Tree like the one seen above. Guests who donate $1 dollar will get to place a leaf on the tree with their name and recieve coupons to use on their next visit. There are some awesome deals with these coupons, such as buy one lunch or dinner entree and get one free and a $10 off $30 coupon. That’s a pretty nice deal if you ask me! Guests who donate $5 will also receive a pink ribbon pin (see below as I could not resist donanting to such an amazing organization). Guests not able to visit a Mimi’s Cafe can donate via an online donation and will be able to place a digital leaf on the digital Giving Tree. Guests can also purchase the two drinks mentioned above as a portion of the proceeds from those drinks will also be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Loving all the PINK!!!
