Local eateries are thinking pink this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the whole month, these Valley venues will donate a portion of the proceeds from select menu items to various breast cancer foundations. Here are six places to sip and sample for a good cause.

All October long, Farm & Craft is running a special fundraising promotion called “Save Your Melons,” which will donate a portion of every Forbidden Fruit sold to Impact One, a local organization providing financial and emotional support to women with breast cancer.
