St. Petersburg, Florida -- October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One in eight women will be diagnosed with the disease and from retailers to restaurants, you'll see an assortment of pink products.

While you're thinking pink, look for items that donate a majority or all proceeds to a breast cancer charity.

On this Taco Tuesday, Tijuana Flats rolled out pink tacos. Customers can make a dollar donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through out the month to get the designer shells.

The Seminole Hard Rock is hosting PINKTOBER for the 14th year, and are donating funds to BCRF and other local charities.
