Teller's Gives Back To Local Breast Cancer Initiative

A fifteen foot Pink Ribbon will fill Hyde Park Square during the month of October as Teller’s of Hyde Park, a restaurant serving the Cincinnati community for over 12 years, joins forces with the Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund’s Pink Ribbon programs to increase breast cancer awareness. On Thursday, October 9, Teller’s will be donating all proceeds from its food and beverage sales to the Pink Ribbon. To continue supporting the cause throughout the month of October, Teller’s will donate an additional two dollars to the Pink Ribbon whenever a signature “Pink Ribbitini” cocktail is purchased.

The Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund is a non-profit organization that helps women in the Tri-State area by educating them about early breast cancer detection, providing support services for women who have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer and also providing funded mammogram services and additional breast services for low-income and uninsured women. In a time when health care issues are highlighted throughout the United States, the Cris Collinsworth Proscan Fund is helping to provide services that should inherently be a part of existing health care.

Teller’s is located in the heart of Hyde Park Square in the historic Hyde Park Savings and Loan building. The restaurant has a menu with a wide variety to please any palate as well as an extensive wine list and 30 beers on tap. Teller’s is extremely dedicated to increasing breast cancer awareness and is committed to supporting the Pink Ribbon because it provides women an opportunity to be given the best support and proper care regardless of their economic status. “We’re hoping that because it’s such a simple way to give, people will find it’s something they can easily get behind. All they need to do is come in on the 9th and dine here and they will be making a difference for a very important cause,” says Brendan Hurley, Managing Partner of Teller’s of Hyde Park. “We hope the ribbon will give people something to talk about and make them come in to find out what is going on,” says Hurley.
