Have you been impacted by breast cancer? I have. In 1994, I lost my grandmother to the horrific disease. A coworker battled it in 2003. Another coworker is waging her own war against it now. So, when it comes to organizations that support breast cancer research, I am all for it.
I was recently contacted by Del Webb, an active adult community builder, about the Cook for the Cure events they are hosting across the country to benefit the Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation. The Susan G. Komen For the Cure foundation is dedicated to education and research in the search for a breast cancer cure.
The folks at Del Webb asked me to share some information about the Cook for the Cure events, which are happening through the 24th (see the Del Webb Facebook page for a full list of events). If you are in the neighborhood, drop by one!
Here’s some information about the events from Del Webb:
From July 15-24, 45 Del Webb communities across the nation will be hosting the events. They are free, open to the public and will feature:
- Food samplings
- Live entertainment
- Silent auctions
- Raffles, prizes and more
Attendees are invited to come eat, enjoy the Del Webb lifestyle and enter to win KitchenAid® small appliances. Those interested in attending can find a community nearby and RSVP on Del Webb’s website.
Cooks for the Cure challenges America to host 1,000 dinner parties to raise money for breast cancer research and community outreach programs. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the event has raised a collective $8 million for the foundation since 2001.
