The new flavor has been released as part of 5-hour ENERGY®’s continuing effort to support breast cancer causes, most notably with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national non-profit education and support organization serving women and families affected by breast cancer. From now through Dec. 31, 2013, 5-hour ENERGY® will donate five cents from the sale of every specially marked bottle of the new raspberry flavor to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The minimum guaranteed donation is $75,000. “Our company has a strong history of supporting causes that fight breast cancer,” said Melissa Skabich, communications director for 5-hour ENERGY®. “This year we chose LBCC because we’re so impressed with the great work they’re doing to empower women affected by breast cancer, and we are working hard to help support the organization both financially and by raising awareness for the cause.” “We’re excited to join with 5-hour ENERGY® in supporting all of the great work that Living Beyond Breast Cancer does for so many women and families,” said Michael Tatoian, executive vice president and COO of Dover Motorsports, Inc. “This race weekend, we’ll be ‘painting the property pink’ to show our support for such a noble cause.” Dover Motorsports PR
