Parallel Post's "Hello Kitty" Dessert Combo benefits CT Breast Health Initiative


I'm thinking PINK for the month of October - how about you? 

And so is Parallel Post  at the Trumbull Marriott!

Throughout the month of October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Parallel Post will be serving up the "Hello Kitty" Combo for a dessert and after dinner cocktail.

The decadent combo will feature a steaming spiked cappuccino cocktail, made with Godiva Chocolate Liquor, Compari and Onyx 111 Moonshine in organic Shearwater Coffee. accented with pink foam and pink chocolate shavings. The Coffee Cocktail will be accompanied by a Pink Cupcake filled with pink pudding, topped with pink buttercream frosting and garnished with pink ribbon sprinkles and pink chocolate shavings. 

With every $15 Hello Kitty sold at Parallel Post throughout the month of October, a percentage of sales will be donated to the Connecticut Breast Health Initiative http://ctbhi.org located in New Britain.  

Parallel Post is overseen by James Beard nominated Chef Dean James Max, and is a modern-American restaurant based in Trumbull, CT. focused on seasonal and regional cuisine.  

Below are some key facts regarding CT Breast Health Initiative and breast cancer statistics in Connecticut.

The CT Breast Health Initiative, Inc. was founded in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Their mission is to make a difference locally in the fight against breast cancer through education and research.  Their desire is to find a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. 

Connecticut is currently ranked 35th in the nation for breast cancer mortality and for a small state, this is a huge challenge. That’s why 100% of the money raised in Connecticut stays in Connecticut. CT BHI has focused all of its considerable energy and resources on education and research, funding forward thinking programs that have yet to qualify for federal grants. And it’s all happening where it matters most – right here at home!  To date, CT BHI has awarded $2.3 million to fund important breast cancer research and education projects in Connecticut. Thus far, they have funded 20 researchers at various Connecticut hospitals and organizations. 

Six have reported on their progress at national meetings and one research project is patent pending.

They strive each year to surpass this milestone with the help of their supporters, sponsors and fundraising events.  And here's where you come in! You CAN make a difference! 

Join your friends for this sweet treat combo - and help support a great cause!
