Three Ways to Celebrate Mom and Take a Stand Against Breast Cancer
BENTON HARBOR, Mich., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — A decade after introducing the now-famous, soft pink Stand Mixer that helped raise millions for the fight against breast cancer, KitchenAid has launched a new, hotter pink model celebrating the 10th anniversary of Cook for the Cure, its philanthropic partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the leader of the global breast cancer movement. Together with the original pink version and a white model with pink trim band, this bold, eye-catching Raspberry Ice Stand Mixer brings to three the number of choices for celebrating moms, and celebrating the cause, with this enduring Mother’s Day gift.
Available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma, the 5-quart KitchenAidÃ‚® ArtisanÃ‚® Series Stand Mixer in Raspberry Ice features a metallic finish and glass bowl, and carries a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $399.99. The 5-quart pink model, with a non-metallic finish and stainless steel bowl, is available at retailers nationwide and via ShopKitchenAid.com at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $349.99.

Today, the KitchenAid brand offers virtually every essential for the well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars. This year marks the brand’s 10th anniversary of Cook for the CureÃ‚®, a partnership with Susan G. Komen for the CureÃ‚® that has raised over $8 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.
