Beginning on April 1st and continuing throughout the month, Baldwin’s Station in historic Sykesville is proud to support the Blossoms of Hope annual pink season by participating in their Pink Plate Specials program. During the blossoming season of Howard County’s cherry trees (each April) local restaurateurs think pink by adding “Pink” Plate Specials to their menus to help raise cancer awareness and support the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital.
Baldwin’s Station, named Maryland’s favorite restaurant by the Restaurant Association of Maryland, will be adding their own spin to the pink plate promotion by offering a specially designed PINK DRINK MENU – A portion of the proceeds from every drink sold will be donated to the charity.
Baldwin’s Station owner Stewart Dearie said,
“We’re excited to be able to support our community by doing what we do best—serving great food and drinks! We’re the only restaurant that designed a drink menu because we wanted to do something a little different. And--my staff and I want to be the top fund raising restaurant for the event so we’re encouraging everyone to DRINK PINK! We’re also selling raffle tickets--the first prize is a wine dinner for 4, 2 cases of wine, a case of beer and a fabulous basket of cheer—valued at over $1000.”
Baldwin’s Station offers fine dining in Sykesville’s historic 1883 train station, overlooking the scenic Patapsco River. Located at 7618 Main Street in Sykesville, the station sits on the border of Howard and Carroll Counties. For reservations, call 410-795-1041 or go to www.BaldwinsStation.com.
Blossoms of Hope’s annual pink season brings a month-long celebration of activities that honor the beauty of the trees and help raise cancer awareness.
