Representatives from Quaker Steak & Lube – the award-winning casual-dining concept known for its Best Wings USA and more than 25 signature sauces – present a check for $1,000 to the Tinton Falls-based Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care, an organization dedicated to helping inspire the courage, strength and confidence needed to fight cancer while easing financial strain. To raise funds, Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants in Brick, Edison and Pohatcong donated a portion of proceeds from sales of “Pink Drinks” sold during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
