There was a bevy of good will Mother’s days weekend in support of research for the cure of breast cancer, including not only the highly publicized Revlon Run/Walk but top celebrity chefs were involved with “Cook for the Cure.” Presented by KitchenAid, it is an effort by the culinary community and cooking enthusiasts to support and raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure .
Lidia Bastianich, Mario Batali and Sara Moulton (Gourmet magazine executive chef and Good Morning America, food editor) appear in the May issue of Gourmet to raise awareness and give credit to the women who inspired them: their mothers. All three chefs signed the popular pink KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer, which is being auctioned on Charity Folks through May 15th.
In order to create breast cancer awareness, celebrity chefs and waitstaff wore pink aprons over the holiday weekend which read “I cook for mom.”
Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and launched the global breast cancer movement.
