Breast cancer help

Throughout October, proceeds from “The Sure Thing” fixed-price menu at Sullivan's Steakhouse will be donated to breast cancer research. (Each October for the past five years, Sullivan’s has offered special menus at its 19 locations across the country and has raised more than $500,000 for breast cancer research.) The menu is three courses, with choices, for $39. 1928 South Blvd.; 704-335-8228.

FS Food Group, which includes Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, Mama Ricotta’s, Paco’s Tacos and Midwood Smokehouse, is taking part in Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with Boar's Head: The restaurants will display survivor stories on tables along with a special dish named for each survivor. For every specialty dish that is ordered, the FS Food Group and Boar’s Head will donate $1 to Susan B. Komen for the Cure.

Burger 21 also donates 10 percent of its proceeds to a charity or school on the 21st of each month. The Oct. 21 donation will go to Carolina Breast Friends. 14825 Ballantyne Village Way;
