September Update For Cookie Central's Great American Bake Sale Campaign

National Baking Week Follow Up

Did you know we ran a promotion for Great American Bake Sale's National Baking Week August 29th-September 4th?  If you answered "No" you are not alone!  While we had three of our lovely customers participate by joining our new rewards program The Fat Baker Club, all of us here in the Cookie Central kitchen think that we can do better.  With that said, get ready for the month of October when we will be revisiting our Fat Baker Club/National Baking Week promotion.

During the entire month of October we will be donating 100% of all the membership fees for The FBC to our Great American Bake Sale campaign!  Have plans to thank your clients with our corporate baskets, send a few gift baskets to friends and family, or order some of our wonderful decorated cookies?  With the holidays coming, everyone can benefit from the 5% discount, free cookie basket and monthly giveaways.

Cookie Central on The Friends Of Kevin Radio Show
 That's right folks, we hit the airwaves to promote our upcoming golf tournament and talk about Cookie Central's 2011 Great American Bake Sale season.  A special shout out to WSMN Radio and the incredible Kevin Willet, founder of Friends of Kevin and host to the show! Make sure you check out some of our other YouTube videos we have posted.  PLEASE NOTE*** The Cupcake Wars audition video is not suitable for all audiences.  There's your disclaimer, consider yourselves warned ;)

"Driving For No Kid Hungry"

Well, it's getting close people. Plans for our tourney are rolling right along and boy do we have some awesome prizes!  Tourney winning teams will each receive a foursome to one of three local golf clubs. Raffle prizes range from restaurant gift cards to Adobe products.  We will be joined by Lowell Spinners VP for a silent auction of sports memorabilia.  Whiskey and wine tasting will take place on the course and don't forget the incredibly awesome band we will have during the reception (Dinner & A Show tickets are available for non-golfers).  Needless to say, it's going to be an amazing event, BUT registration closes this Friday. So if you are coming, register now!!

Do You Dine Out?
September 18th marks the beginning of Dine Out For No Kid Hungry.  Restaurants will will support Share Our Strength's efforts to fight childhood hunger in America by offering specials, gifts and promotions from 9/18-9/24.  This is a nationwide event that many of your favorite restaurants may already be involved in, so make sure you check out the Dine Out Map to see who's participating in your area. 


Excuse Me While I Take Off For......
It's that time of year and Cookie Central will be closed October 14-18 as we attend Share Our Strength's Conference Of Leaders and Taste Of The Nation Baltimore.  I'm thrilled to say that I've been nominated for the 2011 GABS Community Leadership Award...and not by my mother (whoop, whoop!).  I can only imagine I will be pouring out a whole boat load of tweets during the conference, so if you would like to follow along please follow me on Twitter

As always, thank you for reading! ~ Michele Gorham :)
