April 24, 2013 – RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – (PRWEB) Bialetti—the leading Italian coffee and cookware brand known for its forward thinking in both innovation and style—announced today that its Aeternum Pink royalty program raised more than $55K in 2012.
In 2011, Bialetti selected the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which is committed to spreading knowledge and fostering hope in the fight against breast cancer, to receive a donation on all net sales of the Aeternum Pink 2-pack sauté pan set (9.5” and 11”), which is sold for a MSRP of $59.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond and bialettishop.com. The Aeternum Pink royalty program raised over $55,000 in 2012, which was donated to the NBCF.
“Breast cancer is one of the leading health crisis for women in the U.S.,” says Janelle Hail, president and CEO of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. “We are very grateful for Bialetti’s financial support, which helps us educate women about life-saving techniques of early detection and provide free mammograms for the underserved.”
“We’re proud to do our part in continuing the quest to not only end breast cancer, but prevent it,” said Brett Bradshaw, president, Bradshaw International. “Our Aeternum line of sauté pans are very popular with consumers and creating the Pink color version was just a perfect fit to help contribute to this worthy mission. We look forward to donating more royalties as our Aeternum Pink program continues.”
The Aeternum Pink Cookware incorporates Bialetti’s innovative white, ceramic technology with its iconic style. Its easy-to-clean coating paired with a heavy-weight aluminum base provides excellent thermal properties and even heat distribution so dishes are cooked to perfection every time.
Aeternum Pink is also PFOA free and its non-stick coating is applied at a low temperature, leading to a lower emission of CO2 into the atmosphere. In addition, the pan heats up quickly requiring les energy. Plus clean up is so easy that less soap is required, making the Aeternum Pink a “greener” choice that supports a great cause.
