Shopping for kitchen gear, cooking and entertaining have joined walking and running as ways to actively support the fight against breast cancer.
Throughout October, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, "foodies" nationwide can generate donations to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation by purchasing select KitchenAid appliances, taking classes at Art Institutes cooking schools in 19 cities, or throwing a dinner party with help from Gourmet magazine.
All three initiatives are part of Cook for the Cure®, a KitchenAid- sponsored program that has generated more than $2 million in donations to the Komen Foundation since its launch in 2001. For details, visit http://www.cookforthecure.com/ . For more information about breast health or breast cancer, visit http://www.komen.org/ or call 1.800.I'M AWARE® (1-800-462-9273).
