About Project Pink
Project Pink was developed in 2010 by Red Rock’s executive pastry chef Jaret Blinn, who together with the executive team at Red Rock Resort, have become active in the fight against breast cancer after Blinn’s mother lost her battle with the disease. The response by the public was so overwhelming that the company expanded those efforts to several areas throughout each property to raise even greater awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. \
