Tulsa restaurant "rose" to the occasion to fight breast cancer
TULSA - A Juniper is a tree known for its blue berries, but blue is not what you'll find this week at Tulsa's Juniper restaurant. That's because they're turning pink.
From the ribbon outside to their floral centerpieces, General Manager Heather Dusenberry has decked the place out in pink to raise money for Turn Tulsa Pink, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness for breast cancer.
"We want guests to know when they walk in we support the charity," said Dusenberry.
The pink doesn't stop at decorations. It's feature menu for the week is blushing as well, with entrees like lobster beet pasta with red wine cream sauce. The chef used beets to dye the pasta a light pink color. The menu also includes achiote pork with red quinoa, and a red grapefruit and pancetta salad with raspberry vinaigrette.
The drink menu features a pink pinot grigio.
The benefit runs through October 27.
