Greenwood, Miss. (October 2012) – Viking Range Corporation is teaming up with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to auction off a pink Viking D3 range and pink D3 ventilation hood in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  100% of the proceeds will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  The winner of this Ebay auction will have their choice of a Viking D3 gas or Viking D3 electric 30”W. range and a 30”W. ventilation hood as well as their choice of pink, stainless steel or any other Viking exclusive color finish. The Viking D3 series is a brand new product line from Viking that was introduced earlier this year.

This is the second year Viking and NBCF have teamed up to auction a pink Viking range and hood as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Additionally, since 2005 the Viking Cooking Schools, a subsidiary of Viking Range Corporation, have donated $5 for every participant who signed up for the “Girls’ Night Out” cooking class at participating Viking Cooking Schools.  To date, the Viking Cooking Schools and Viking Range Corporation have donated over $64,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and hope to significantly increase that amount at the completion of this auction.

The Ebay auction, hosted by NBCF, will begin on October 15, 2012, and will run for 10 days, ending on October 25, 2012.
