Pink Drinks Empower Families Fight Cancer


Representatives from Quaker Steak & Lube and Chevys Fresh Mex restaurants owned and operated by local franchisee, Doherty Enterprises, present a check for $2,000 to the Tinton Falls-based Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care, an organization dedicated to helping inspire courage, strength and confidence needed to those affected by cancer. To raise funds, Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants in Brick, Edison and Pohatcong and Chevys Fresh Mex restaurants in Clifton and Linden donated a portion of proceeds from sales of “Pink Drinks” sold during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The donation will help support Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care’s goal of easing the overwhelming financial and emotional strains associated with cancer treatments of those suffering from cancer.
