Introducing: 1,000 Cooks for the Cure

1,000 Cooks for the Cure

Susan G. Komen® and KitchenAid are uniting for the 13th year in a row to support the fight against breast cancer. The Cook for the Cure® program gives people with a passion for cooking a way to support a meaningful cause. From pink products and celebrity chef auctions to home-based fundraising events, this partnership between KitchenAid and Susan G. Komen® has raised more than $9.5 million over the past decade.

1,000 Cooks for the Cure

If you enjoy cooking and entertaining, we invite you to host a gathering that supports a meaningful cause this July. Called 1,000 Cooks for the Cure, the initiative aims to enlist 1,000 cooks from the U.S. to host a get-together with friends, family or colleagues anytime from July 18-27. In lieu of a host gift, guests are encouraged to bring a donation in any amount to support the fight against breast cancer. Those interested in hosting a party can visit Cook for the Cure to register and obtain a unique host identification number.
