This year marks the 10th anniversary of Cook for the Cure, a program benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. If you're unfamiliar, Susan G. Komen is an organization dedicated to ending breast cancer by “empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.” To raise funds and encourage awareness for the cause, Del Webb and KitchenAid are sponsoring “1,000 Cooks for the Cure,” a program striving to host 1,000 dinner party fundraisers across the United States between Friday, July 15th and Sunday, July 24th. Del Webb has organized a selection of scheduled dinner party events that are open to the public, featuring cooking demos, live entertainment and prizes. For a listing of these events or to RSVP online, visit their web site. If there isn’t a pre-planned event near you, consider hosting your own! You can register your party on the KitchenAid site.
To spread the word about this initiative, Del Webb has offered to give one of my lucky readers a brand new Cook for the Cure Pink KitchenAid Blender (pictured above - retail value $129.99)! This 56 oz blender has five speeds, plus additional pulse and ice crush modes and comes in the color for the cure, pink!
I’m giving you FIVE chances to win your very own Cook for the Cure Pink KitchenAid Blender:
Entry: “Like” the Del Webb Facebook Page and post your favorite “pink” recipe (or a link to the recipe) on their Facebook wall. The recipe does not have to be pink in color, it just needs to be fabulous and inspiring to people hosting/attending their 1,000 Cooks for the Cure dinner parties/potlucks. Share any recipe you'd like!
