Serrano’s October Specials Support Local Breast Cancer Nonprofit
Restaurants to Host ‘Pink Out’ in Memory of Stephanie Serrano on Oct. 16
CHANDLER, Ariz. (Oct. 4, 2021) – In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Serrano’s is rolling out three specials with a portion of the sales proceeds benefiting local nonprofit Check for a Lump.
Check for a Lump was founded in 2009 with the simple goal of encouraging women to perform monthly breast self-exams. Their mission has since expanded to providing free breast health education, mammograms, testing and direct assistance to breast cancer patients with wigs, support and resources in Arizona.
Additionally, the Serrano family will host a “Pink Out” at all four restaurant locations on Sat., Oct. 16, in memory of former Serrano’s co-owner and past Chandler City Councilmember Stephanie Serrano, who lost her battle to breast cancer in October 2019.
“We all miss Stephanie and know that she would be proud of our efforts to honor her memory and support a local nonprofit dedicated to making a difference in the fight against breast cancer,” said Ric Serrano, CEO of Serrano’s Mexican Restaurants. “There are too many families who have been impacted by this terrible disease, and we are proud to support Check for a Lump’s efforts.”
