GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- In 1979, CRAVE founder Kam Talebi and his family came to Minnesota from Iran to seek medical treatment at the Mayo Clinic for their mother Shahnaz who had been diagnosed with breast cancer and was given only a few months to live.
In honor of their own mother and all of those dedicated to finding a cure, CRAVE created the Pink Carpet Event to benefit the Minnesota affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
On Friday, May 11, the downtown Minneapolis CRAVE location will close for this unique ticketed event featuring fantastic food, fashion and plenty of fun.
Guests of the inaugural celebration will enjoy CRAVE menu favorites, complimentary bar service, music, dancing, and a fashion presentation of custom pink looks created by top local designers and produced by Ignite Models.
A limited number of tickets are available, with packages ranging from $125 to $500. The latter "VIPink Ticket" includes preferred rooftop access, all-access to reserved VIP lounges, premium complimentary beverages, and round-trip limo service or one-night stay at a downtown luxury hotel.
Tickets are available for purchase online or at any Twin Cities CRAVE location.
