Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood to Kick Off PINKTOBER® with Collaboration Dinner at Abiaka Featuring Famed Chef Dominique Crenn

Part of Hard Rock International’s annual campaign to support breast cancer awareness and research; proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood is kicking off PINKTOBER with a five-course dinner at Abiaka with celebrity Chef Dominique Crenn on Tuesday, Sept. 27. A portion of the dinner sales will benefit Hard Rock International’s annual PINKTOBER campaign benefitting American Cancer Society.

French Chef Dominique Crenn’s Atelier Crenn earned three Michelin stars in 2018, making Crenn the first and only female chef in the United States to have her restaurant awarded three Michelin stars. A breast cancer survivor, Crenn is also a known advocate for women’s rights and the LGBTQ+ community. In collaboration with Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s property chefs, Tram Vu (Executive Chef of Cipresso), Lissette Valle (Sous Chef of Hard Rock Sports Bar), Abelardo “Tito” Vargas (Executive Chef of Abiaka) and Jason Morales (Executive Pastry Chef), Chef Crenn will wine and dine guests to kick off Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood’s efforts in supporting breast cancer awareness and research. Welcome reception to start at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets for the five-course dinner start at $200 per person (inclusive of tax and gratuity). Reservations are required and can be made by calling (954) 316-2900.

As part of the resort’s PINKTOBER efforts, various food and beverage outlets will feature limited edition pink menu items with a portion of all sales going to breast cancer research. The PINKTOBER cocktail, Bouquet of Rosé, will be offered at all four fine dining restaurants (Abiaka, Cipresso, Council Oak Steaks & Seafood and Kuro), L Bar and Oculus Bar. The gin-based cocktail combines Luxardo Liqueur and lemon, topped with Chandon rosé, Peychaud’s Bitters and a candied hibiscus flower. At Council Oak, the classic cheesecake will be pink and served with seasonal garnish. Kuro will offer pink doughnuts with a pink fruit sauce, while Cipresso will showcase a pink clam shell pasta with lobster and herbed ricotta cheese and also pink cheesecake. Constant Grind will offer raspberry champagne fizz bonbons, ruby peach cupcakes and two specialty gelato flavors. Rise Kitchen & Deli will offer pink cheesecake with berry compote and pink pancakes.

Other PINKTOBER initiatives include a luxurious pinked-out Bora Bora cabana, an overwater villa experience overlooking the Guitar Hotel poolscape. Each rental is equipped with personal plunge pools, a private bathroom and butler service. Proceeds from the rental will benefit the cause.

Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood is also bringing back the official PINKTOBER social wall for a photo opportunity in front of the Guitar Hotel lobby, where guests can upload their pictures and show their support on social media by tagging @HardRockHolly and #PINKTOBER.

The Guitar Hotel façade will be lit in a PINKTOBER theme every night during October.
