October is here, and it's that time of the year when we come together to raise awareness and support the fight against breast cancer.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mandarin Oriental, Miami will offer a series of special initiatives aimed at raising awareness and funds for the fight against the disease. The luxury hotel is directing a portion of proceeds from several exclusive offerings available throughout the property to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. To set the stage, starting October 1st and throughout the month, the façade of Mandarin Oriental, Miami will glow in soft pink lights, symbolizing their support.
Offered exclusively throughout October, La Mar by Gastón Acurio’s specially crafted dish—
Pink Causa for a Cause—is priced at $38 and incorporates an exquisite blend of flavors and textures.
Executive Chef Diego Oka, known for his award-winning culinary expertise, has created this terrine of potato puree, artistically shaped as a ribbon and colored pink by the addition of beets. The artful dish includes decadent layers of crabmeat, sunchokes, Peruvian trout, shrimp cocktail, avocado, smoked trout roe, and creamy Huancaina sauce for diners to order and enjoy throughout the month. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
MO Bar + Lounge, known for its elevated cocktail and culinary offerings located within the sleek lobby of the prestigious hotel, is also contributing to the cause with a
signature cocktail, the Pink Paloma.

Elegantly served up in a martini glass, the cocktail is garnished with frozen watermelon and adorned with pink glitter and a pink salt rim. A percentage of proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
