Otis Spunkmeyer Pink Cookies for Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Otis Spunkmeyer, Inc. has donated over $100,000 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the fight to end breast cancer through sales of its limited-edition Pink Cookies.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure is one of the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activities. The organization works to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cure.

The Otis Spunkmeyer Pink Cookie is available now through October 31 through the Otis Spunkmeyer fundraising program and can be purchased by restaurants and other foodservice outlets through regular distribution channels. The Pink Cookie is a 1.33 oz chocolate cookie loaded with pink candy-coated chocolate pieces. 

“At Otis Spunkmeyer, charitable giving and community service is at the heart of our culture,” said John Schiavo, President and CEO of Otis Spunkmeyer. “Breast cancer affects so many families and we hope that by providing special cookie moments through our Pink Cookie and partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, we can make a positive impact on those battling this disease.”

“Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s partnership with Otis Spunkmeyer offers consumers a sweet way to support the breast cancer movement,” said Katrina McGhee, senior vice president, global partnerships and business development. “One in eight women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime and this program is providing funds that are vital to our promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever."
