The Mint, the swanky restaurant and ultra-lounge in Scottsdale, might have gleaned its name from its former bank location, but at its Paint it Pink benefit for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the former financial institution is going the giving route.
Starting at 3 p.m., this Thursday, October 6, The Mint invites philanthropists and party people alike to "paint the night pink" for a special breast cancer benefit.
Along with Asian-style eats courtesy of chef Johnny Chu, The Mint's Paint it Pink benefit also includes two pink cocktails, live music, a pink fashion show, and a huge blank canvas that guests will help turn into a charitable work of auction-ready art with the help of local Phoenix artist, Banding Hendrix.
Get the details and find out how to make reservations after the jump.
