Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa has started its annual month-long support of PINKTOBER — its breast cancer awareness campaign.

Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will once again be the Pink Premier Sponsor for this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, scheduled for Saturday, October 2, at Raymond James Stadium. For details about the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, please visit www.makingstrideswalk.org.

Throughout the month of October, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa will be participating in the campaign through fundraising efforts supporting the Hard Rock Heals Foundation®, the charitable arm of Hard Rock®.

“Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is honored to support those in need, especially those in our local community, during PINKTOBER,” said President Steve Bonner. “It’s a privilege to bring our guests and community members together through fundraising events that deliver a unifying message of strength, hope and awareness for those affected by this disease.”

This year, Hard Rock International will be offering uniquely designed, limited-edition merchandise in support of breast cancer awareness and research, which include a PINKTOBER-themed Hard Rock t-shirt and a newly designed PINKTOBER pin. Additionally, through the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, a percentage of all proceeds will be going to charities that help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
