Love to cook? Interested in supporting the fight against breast cancer?
Invite your family, friends or colleagues for a get-together from July 15-24, 2011, asking them to bring a donation in any amount for Komen for the Cure in lieu of wine, flowers or some other token of appreciation.
Called 1,000 Cooks for the Cure, this nationwide event is part of Cook for the Cure, a partnership between Komen and KitchenAid that has raised over $8 million. The goal of this initiative is to enlist 1,000 cooks to host gatherings during this time period.
The host of any party registered at CookfortheCure.com that raises more than $50 will receive a special Villeroy & Boch “Pass the Plate” serving platter (valued at $24.95) designed by Jacques Pépin as a thank you receipt of the contributions.
These platters were created to be “re-gifted” again and again, along with a homemade culinary creation from the giver. Each time the individually numbered plates are registered online at CookfortheCure.com and passed along to others, KitchenAid will make a $5 donation to Komen, ensuring that parties keep on giving long after grateful guests have gone home.
KitchenAid has committed to donating a minimum of $450,000 to Komen in connection with Cook for the Cure in 2011. For more information on 1,000 Cooks for the Cure and other waysto participate, click here.
