The main entrance of Terranea is bathed in a rosy pink every October for Beast Cancer Awareness Month. This is the 9th year the oceanfront luxury resort provides blush colored cocktails and a variety of enrichment activities to guests. Proceeds for the month’s worth of activities, plus food and beverage specials benefit Play for P.I.N.K and Cancer Support Community South Bay.
“Women continue to change and enhance the hospitality industry” said Ralph Grippo, president of Terranea Resort. “We are proud to demonstrate our support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with our Terranea Turns Pink initiatives.”

Drink Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness
Nature also contributes to the pink theme, as sunsets in Southern California seem to be more beautiful and stunning during the month of October. Sit in one of the dining venues or outdoor bar lounges to soak up the beauty of the sun setting into the Pacific Ocean.
Throughout October in the Lobby and all dining destinations, a signature “Florecita” pink cocktail will be available and $1 of every purchase will support breast cancer.
The rose-tinted cocktail is made with Tanteo Blanco Tequila, Rishi Lavender Mint Tea, cranberry, peach, lemon and lavender bitters. It’s served in a large, rounded goblet with ice and garnished with delicate, beautifully colored edible flowers floating atop.
