"We are thrilled about the important, collaborative research supported by The Entertainment Industry Foundation to fund promising breast cancer research. Clarisonic is proud to partner with this great organization by donating $200,000 raised through our 'Pink Ribbon Campaign,'" said David Giuliani, CEO of Pacific Bioscience Laboratories Inc. "Unfortunately, nearly everyone in the country has been touched by breast cancer in some way -- if not personally, through a friend or loved one. In the shared spirit of the thousands of runners, walkers and supporters who have come out today, it is our hope that this donation will help in the fight against breast cancer, serve as a means for our company to give back, and offer our customers an opportunity to continue this journey with us because the advancements being made are so promising."

First introduced in October 2007, Clarisonic's "Pink Ribbon" campaign has raised over $400,000 to help fight breast cancer. With every purchase the "Pink Ribbon" Clarisonic raises funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer.

"We are grateful to Clarisonic for its generous donation and its commitment to the fight against breast cancer," said Lisa Paulsen, president and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. "Every contribution makes a difference. It's wonderful that Clarisonic's Pink Ribbon campaign makes it easy for consumers to support our cause."

The annual women's cancer fundraiser was hosted by Emmy-nominated star of ABC's "Samantha Who," Christina Applegate, actress, singer and star of "Hannah Montana" Miley Cyrus, her mother Tish Cyrus, special guests star of "Fast & Furious" Jordana Brewster, star of ABC's "Desperate House Wives" Marcia Cross, star of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Carrie Ann Inaba and Revlon brand ambassador Beau Garrett. "Dancing with the Stars" star, Derek Hough lead the race - which took place at Los Angeles Exposition Park - in the event pace car, while GRAMMY(R) Award-winning recording artist Michael Bolton headlined the event's celebration concert in the Los Angeles Coliseum as the runners and walkers participants crossed the finish line.
