KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Party and Giveaway

Congratulations, Stacie! I hope you like your prize package and I can’t wait to hear how your party goes!

Look at this pretty plate! It was designed by Jacque Pepin and made by Villeroy & Boch for KitchenAid’s support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure via Cook for the Cure events. I want one and I’m telling you right now…I’m getting one. How? I signed up to participate in the 1,000 Cooks for the Cure event between July 15-24 and I committed to raising at least $50. Being one of the first 1,000 participants to raise $50 (for Susan G. Komen for the Cure) will guarantee you a 2011 Pass the Plate platter. I know you want one too!

Here’s some information about Pass the Plate:
Each plate is specifically numbered and every time you pass the plate on to a friend or family member, they can go online and register that it’s been passed and KitchenAid will then donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure!

And there’s another KitchenAid giveaway. This time a bunch of great kitchen tools! I’m doing my part by planning a party in conjunction with my Bunko group. But I also wanted to go a step further and encourage people like you to hold one of your own parties. If you promise to hold a party and register, you can enter in this giveaway!

Why am I doing this? Because I care about breast cancer…if you have visited my blog before, you may have seen me mention that my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. I also have a good cake decorating buddy who was diagnosed last year. I care about finding a cure for breast cancer. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is a great organization and I volunteer for my local Affiliate.

Hosting a 1,000 Cooks for the Cure event is very easy. While some hold a Cook for the Cure party in their homes and schedule the event specifically for this very purpose, others like me hold it in conjunction with an already planned event. You can ask your book club, church group, bowling group, scrapbook crop or any other get together and ask your guests to donate $5 or more. You can have pink themed desserts or just pink themed decor. It’s completely up to you and doesn’t have to be super complicated. I will be encouraging my guests to donate at least $5 and for every $5 they will be able to be entered into a raffle for some great KitchenAid products.

KitchenAid Prize Pack includes:

This package is valued at more than $100. They are the perfect items to get your party started. This giveaway is being done a little different than other giveaways, so please read carefully. The purpose of this giveaway is to encourage people to sign up to host a Cook for the Cure party and raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Thanks for your help in spreading the word!

Disclosure: I received a similar (not exactly the same) gift pack that the winner will receive. I have a lot of the stuff already because I’m a huge KitchenAid fan so I’m using some of these items as a raffle to raise even more money at my Cook for the Cure party. I <3 KitchenAid products and just so you know, I only work with brands that I love. All opinions are my own, of course.
