Offers Pink Beverages, Cups To Benefit Breast Cancer Charities.
DALLAS (Oct. 19, 2009) – In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to raise much needed funds for breast cancer research, 7-Eleven
, Inc., offers two ways to “drink pink” this October. The retailer that sells more than 1 million cups of coffee each day has created an attractive refillable stainless steel mug.
At a price of $6.99, the pink 16-ounce coffee mug features a splash-resistant lid and understated pink-ribbon art. The mug offers the first hot beverage included, and refills are just 99 cents (suggested retail price). A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each cup will be donated to support breast cancer research.
For those who like their beverages a little stronger, Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co. has brewed up a pink version of its popular mike’s hard lemonade, called mike’s hard pink lemonade™. The limited edition flavor is available at participating 7-Eleven® stores
for a suggested retail price of $7.99. Mike’s, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, is contributing $250,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which will fund a researcher for one year. The donation was made in memory of a long-time Mike’s employee who lost her battle with breast cancer last December.
