Smashburger is helping raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation by donating a portion of the sales of their new, limited-time only, Raspberry Sorbet Shake.

The restaurant has several San Diego County-based locations, including Del Mar, La Mesa, Oceanside and San Clemente. Its owners and operators announced today they will donate 40 cents from the sale of every shake, which costs $4.49.

Restaurant officials describe the Raspberry Sorbet Shake as “hand-spun and combines Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream with Häagen-Dazs Raspberry Sorbet for a perfectly blended treat.”

“Komen has made it their mission to work hard every day towards discovering and delivering the cures for breast cancer and we are pleased to help support this important cause,” Dave Prokupek, CEO and Chairman of Smashburger, said through the written statment. “Our Häagen-Dazs shakes are a favorite among customers at Smashburger and now guests can enjoy our delicious limited time Raspberry Sorbet Shake while making a contribution to a great organization. To help in the fight again breast cancer, Smashburger has committed to donating a minimum of $25,000 to Komen this fall.”

In support of the limited-time promotion, the restaurant’s owner said through the news release that all Smashburger employees will wear a Komen pin in honor of Komen’s mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever. Each Raspberry Sorbet Shake is served with a matching pink straw and customers have the opportunity to make their own donation to Komen online. Customer donations will be incremental to Smashburger’s minimum guaranteed donation of $25,000, officials added.

“We are excited to be partnering with Smashburger this October,” said Dorothy Jones, vice president of Marketing at Susan G. Komen. “By purchasing a Raspberry Sorbet Shake, customers are making a real impact in the lives of women and men facing breast cancer in their communities and around the globe.”
