October 7, 2005 (Redmond, Wash.) – The month of October carries new significance for Bite Golf as it continues the fight against breast cancer, one pair of shoes at a time. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so Bite Golf is asking women around the country to help fund breast cancer research by simply purchasing a new pair of golf shoes.
After the sell-out success of the Pink Ribbon Deuce golf shoes this spring, Bite Golf added another shoe style and sandal to the fundraising mix. The golf footwear manufacturer now donates 5% of the proceeds from every pair of Pink Ribbon Golf AC II, Deuce and Tempo OS G golf sandals sold to the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, an organization that provides grants to those researching the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer.
"We are thrilled about the initial funds generated by the Pink Ribbon Deuce," comments Dale Bathum, owner and founder of Bite Golf. "Additional contributions from Golf AC II sales, as well as sales from the golf sandal, should make our overall donation to breast cancer research even more sizeable."
The newest addition to Bite’s DXL collection for women, the Pink Ribbon Golf AC II combines an important national health cause with lightweight comfort and support sure to be a favorite among consumers. To purchase a pair of Pink Ribbon shoes, locate your nearest dealer at www.biteshoes.com or call 800.248.3465.
