Go Pink for the cure - db Bistro Moderne joins in with dessert

What a pleasant surprise, after having an amazing dinner at db Bistro Moderne, to be offered a "pink" dessert to benefit The National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Of course we had to have it and did a little digging to see what exactly this was about.  They brought us a flyer with the dessert that reads:

Month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Think pink at db Bistro Moderne and indulge in Chef Jerome's inspiring Frozen Macaron paired with a refreshing Guanabana Rose/ RaspberrySorbet and Lemon Curd.

During the month of October, the Pastry Teams at Chef Daniel Boulud's DB Bistro Moderne, Miami & Cafe Bouloud Palm Beach have created a delectable pink dessert in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  The Frozan Macaron features refreshing Guanabana-Rose & Raspberry Sorbet framed between Two Pink Macarons Cookies accompanied with Lemon Curd.  The sweetest part of course is that db Bistro Moderne & Cafe Boulud will donate a portion of proceeds from the dessert to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

I hate to link the Miami Herald because they archive their articles and links go dead after a few days, but were exstatic to find out that there are other restaurants joining in this great cause.  As per The Miami Herald:
