Twenty-six company restaurants featured several innovative pink cocktails — like a Bacardi Rum Pink Pineapple Mojito, Tito’s Pink Cosmo and Hendrick’s Gin Strawberry Ginger Pink Fizz — with $1 from each purchase being donated to the ACS.

“Our donation of over $19,000 to the American Cancer Society will be appropriately distributed back to each local restaurant’s community to help their all-important initiatives,” said Dave Iverson of The RAM Restaurant Group.

Added Jennifer Brauer, Program Manager, Corporate Account Operations for the American Cancer Society, “The work that RAM team members do in helping raise funds for breast cancer truly makes a difference in each of their communities. We are excited to be able to put these funds towards our local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks across the nation.”

This marks the fourth consecutive year the company has partnered with the American Cancer Society. During that time, it has raised nearly $50,000. The funds raised by The RAM work to assist those going through a cancer diagnosis, to fund research, and to educate our communities on early detection and prevention.

The RAM Restaurant Group is a Washington-based, team-member owned restaurant and brewing company. The RAM opened their first restaurant location 48 years ago in Lakewood. In 1995, the company opened its first brewery location and now most restaurants have on-site breweries.
