As a twist to the celebrated event, Smith & Wollensky will be “pouring pink” in support of breast cancer awareness. Each year, nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die because of the disease according the National Breast Cancer Foundation.NCBF_web1.jpg

To help uncork the cure, the restaurants will offer a special Smith & Wollensky Pink Ribbon
Pin for $10 during National Wine Week through October, with proceeds benefiting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

RoseWineFinal_web.jpg“National Wine Week is so highly anticipated that we are excited to use this event to support and raise awareness for breast cancer,” said Kim Giguere-Lapine, Vice President of Marketing. “We’ll be featuring ‘pink’ wine and Champagne options as part of the wine lists. We are also very excited to partner with J. Lohr who will donate $2 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation from every bottle of J. Lohr “Carol’s Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc or Cabernet poured at Smith & Wollensky restaurants across the country through October.”

 The J. Lohr Touching Lives Program began four years ago in memory of Carol Waldorf Lohr, late wife of founder Jerry Lohr, who passed away unexpectedly due to complications related to breast cancer.

“Our partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation enables J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines to contribute in a meaningful way to help raise awareness for the importance of early detection,” said Cynthia Lohr, J. Lohr Vice President of Marketing. “Through sales of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from my mother’s namesake vineyard, Carol’s Vineyard, we’ve been able to fund more than 2,500 mammograms. We are thrilled that the premier steakhouse, Smith & Wollensky, is highlighting the need for early detection with initiatives in September and October that involve J. Lohr and that benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation and, ultimately, women and their caregivers facing a breast cancer diagnosis.”

Smith & Wollensky would like to thank our partners:
