Hard Rock's PINKTOBER campaign allows fans to dress up and give back to the cause with the 2014 PINKTOBER merchandise line, including a women's and men's T-shirt ($26 each) and a collector's edition PINKTOBER pin ($12). The women's PINKTOBER V-neck T-shirt is blue to symbolize strength in mind and body and features a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon embellished with roses. The men's PINKTOBER T-shirt is navy blue and features a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon wrapped around two guitars to symbolize support and strength. Hard Rock's collectable PINKTOBER pin features a pink butterfly shaped guitar, which symbolizes rebirth, evolution and beauty.

All PINKTOBER products, including the women's and men's T-shirt, are sold exclusively online at www.hardrock.com. Proceeds from the sale of PINKTOBER merchandise benefits various breast cancer charities with 15 percent of the retail price going directly to the cause.

Flight for the Cure
Hard Rock is also "raising the bar" for the cause with special limited-time beverage offerings, including "Flight for the Cure," a flight of Hard Rock's pink margaritas – Watermelon, Pomegranate and Wildberry – served with pink tortilla chips and house-made salsa. Other featured PINKTOBER drinks include Hard Rock's new Red Berry Press, a sweet fruit cocktail served in a coffee-press style vessel that infuses fruit into the cocktail throughout the drinking process and a fresh, non-alcoholic Wildberry Smoothie.

Get Into Bed for the Cause
Hard Rock Hotel locations are inviting guests to "get into bed for the cause" as part of Hard Rock Hotel's Pink Sheets Rooms. Hard Rock Hotels in the United States and Latin America are supporting this year's PINKTOBER campaign by offering special rooms dressed with Hard Rock's pink sheets.
