Brunswick Billiards Goes Pink to Benefit Breast, Ovarian Health Education

Sales of Exclusive Products to Kick-Off New Partnership with Bright Pink

BRISTOL, Wis., Oct. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- By adding a splash of pink to your game room, you can help educate young women across the country about breast and ovarian cancer prevention and empower them to take charge of their health.

Brunswick Billiards is introducing two limited-edition pink cue sticks as well as the Smash 7.0 – Pink table tennis table  – available now via www.brunswickbilliards.com and at select Brunswick dealers nationwide – with proceeds from the sales to benefit Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals. Proceeds from product sales will help positively impact the hundreds of thousands of young women who rely on Bright Pink's education and support programs each year.

"Bright Pink's team is incredibly focused in their efforts to help young women understand their health risks, truly empowering them to take change of their health," said Brent Hutton, president of Brunswick Billiards.  "Brunswick Billiards is proud to join forces with an organization that shows such an undeniable passion for its mission. These new pink Brunswick products are just the first step in what we see as a long-term partnership with this growing, impactful non-profit organization."

Brunswick Billiards will donate $10 from the sale of each pink cue stick and $50 from the sale of each pink table tennis unit to Bright Pink.

  • Retailing for $100, the pink cue sticks are part of Brunswick's Smoke Series, which features a range of expertly balanced two-piece cues designed for recreational billiards players. The limited-edition pink cue stick is available in two shades – a dark, solid pink and a light, marbled pink.
  • The Smash 7.0 - Pink table tennis table features a bold pink playing surface, a net with pink trim and pink net clips as well as a sturdy 25mm playing field for every loop, flip and (of course) smash you make. A solid undercarriage ensures exceptional strength and stability, while the easy fold up design makes moving and storage quick and convenient. The table retails for $899.

"This collaboration provides us with a critical opportunity to reach more women with education and support that can empower them to save their lives from breast and ovarian cancer," said Lindsay Avner, founder and CEO of Bright Pink. "We're incredibly grateful for Brunswick Billiards's commitment in support of our mission and look forward to creating life-saving impact with them this fall and beyond."
