Let's Eat Cake!

A few of you may know that I had the most amazing internship ever a couple years ago. It wasn't the traditional one-semester internship (though that's the way we told UF it was!). I helped Melissa at MasterPiece Weddings out with the wedding planning and coordinating for a little over a year. It was my dream internship. Weddings and romance and all things fun. Melissa's area of expertise is weddings, but she's done countless events of other kinds, and now she's branching out into some major charity fundraising. She is working to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and the event is just over a month away with the goal of $50,000 yet to be met. So MasterPiece Weddings has put their money where their mouths are (where the cake will soon be), and they will contribute $1 for every blog that mentions the fundraiser. If you would like to help by spreading the word, simply copy and paste the text below in a blog post, then e-mail Melissa at Melissa@masterpieceweddings.net so she can verify.

Masterpiece Weddings, an event coordination agency founded by Melissa Margarita-DiStefano, is working really hard to put on an amazing fundraiser in February called Let’s Eat Cake! - which will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital - an incredible organization that’s dedicated to treating children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

Let’s Eat Cake! is a wedding cake competition, featuring Wedding Cake confections from all over the United States. Bakers will feature their cakes to be judged by Local and National Culinary Celebrities. In addition bakers will be asked to make enough cake to feed the general public, so that they may judge the cakes as well!

Our Goal is to raise $50,000 for this extremely worthy cause. We know times are tough for everyone out there. But that doesn't mean that doesn't mean that kids still aren't getting sick. Please help spread the word about our goal, and our mission. If you can help financially, that'd be great. If you're blogging about this right now.... your spreading the word - and that's all we can ask for!

Thank you!

So to also post a blog about it we need to copy and paste the following information, send an e-mail, & then tell others to e-mail her so that she can verify?

All you need to do is copy the text that starts with "MasterPiece Weddings, an event coordination agency..." You don't have to urge other people to post as well if you don't want to. But if you do, be sure to mention that the last day to do it is the 12th (I forgot to mention that!).
