In an effort to raise money for breast cancer awareness projects and research, the Hard Rock Cafe hosts the 17th edition of the Pinktober campaign, with events, merchandise, live music and more throughout the month. Hard Rock venues around the world ‘go pink’ in honour of the campaign, from pink hotel amenities to pink drinks, and various Pinktober products, which can also be purchased online. The Hard Rock Café Barcelona participates annually in the campaign, with concerts every Thursday throughout the month by female artists, in partnership with various media outlets and organisations across the city. The lineup for 2016 includes Olivella White, the vocalist from Barcelona punk-rock band Buck, newly-formed Barcelona alternative-rock group Silhouet, and the George Lascon Project, a collection of international jazz and funk musicians who met at the Valencia Campus of Berklee College of Music. Metropolitan also shows its support, sponsoring American singer-songwriter Tori Sparks, joined on stage by jazz trio, Calamento, on October 13th. Proceeds raised internationally for Pinktober go to the Caron Keating Foundation, while locally they will benefit Barcelona-based breast cancer charity, FERO (Fundació privada d’Estudis i Recerca Oncològica).
