Help Electrolux Support Ovarian Cancer Research

There are many causes that are near and dear to my heart. The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is one of them. For the last 8 years, I have attended the amazingly-cool Super Saturday event in Hamptons (a huge designer garage sale) where 100% of the proceeds from all sales go to the OCRF. It means that much to me to be there and support the cause.

When I heard that Electrolux Appliances was supporting the Ovarian Research Cancer Fund, I knew I wanted to help spread the word. And Electrolux is doing it in the most unique of ways!

Kelly Ripa (who is the Electrolux brand ambassador) and Buddy Valastro (love him!) from TLC's "Cake Boss," have teamed up with Electrolux to host Kelly's Cake Off for a Cause in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. On February 9th, 5 teams of baking lovers took part in Kelly's Cake Off by decorating their own cakes. (My husband... yes, my husband would have loved to have been there watching the "Cake Boss" himself give some decorating direction!)

Well... starting TODAY, if you head over to Kelly-Confidential, you can cast your vote for your favorite cake from Kelly's Cake Off. This is the ultra-amazing part:for every vote cast, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer . How incredible is this? You can also check it out at the Facebook page or follow them on Twitter (hashtag #CakeOff).

You can also get into some virtual cake decorating, too, and get tips/tricks from Buddy himself! My sons will absolutely love this! All visitors to can decorate and send virtual cakes to friends and family. Each day you send a cake, Electrolux will donate another $11 to OCRF and YOU’LL be entered to win a new induction range, every baker’s dream!

Everyone has the ability to truly play a huge role in this effort.

So helps us spread the word! Every $1 helps in the fight against Ovarian Cancer. If you mention this information on your blog, please email me ( with the link. Everyone who blogs about this amazing cause will be entered to win a new a brand NEW Induction Range from Electrolux!
