For the entire month of October, Traditions On The Beach is encouraging guests to ‘drink pink’ in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Recently awarded ‘Best Martini’ on the Islands’, Traditions’ master mixologist, Carlo, has created a line up of themed cocktails that are sure to tempt your taste buds and whose proceeds will be donated to the Florida Cancer Specialist & Research Institute.

The staff at Traditions on the Beach recently participated in the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Healthy Hair Give Back program. Long-time island locals and Traditions bartenders, Carlo Mucciga & Kris Kilgore, worked to grow out their hair to donate to the program. Their contributions were passed on to the American Cancer Society who distributes wigs to at no cost to female cancer patients in need. “Kris and I didn’t hesitate when challenged to do the Beautiful Lengths grow out competition,” stated Mucciga. “We’ll do just about anything for a great cause,” he finished.
