TULSA, Okla., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever waited in the pouring rain to get an autograph from your favorite celebrity, only to end up going home empty-handed? Never fret. Nonni's Biscotti announced today the first-annual celebrity autographed coffee mug auction; 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the leader of the breast cancer movement.

More than 50 celebrities -- comprised of movie and television personalities -- autographed pink coffee mugs to support Komen for the Cure's promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever. During the first week of October, in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the collector items will be listed in a charity auction on the eBay Giving Works site.

"Nonni's Biscotti, as a brand, has always had a strong connection with women," said Matt Duffy, marketing manager, Nonni's Biscotti. "We formed a partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure because of the impact breast cancer has on so many women across the United States. We are proud to help raise funds for research, education, screening and treatment that will hopefully eliminate this disease one day. We hope this charity auction will not only help raise funds, but also increase awareness about breast cancer."

Nearly 50 coffee mugs were autographed by many of today's hottest celebrities during the Haven House Gifting Suite including: Sasha Cohen, Neve Campbell, James Woods, Lil' Kim, Josh Henderson and Tyler Hilton.* One hundred percent of the final sale price of each mug will be donated to Susan G.
