STIR IT 28: Food Bloggers Align For Haiti Relief On February 21


I am pleased to help spread the word on a great charity event coming later this month!

Bloggers Bren Herrera (Flanboyant Eats), Courtney Nzeribe (Coco Cooks) and Chrystal Baker (The Duo Dishes) have joined forces to organize STIR IT 28: Food Bloggers Align For Haiti Relief.  The multi-city culinary event will be held on Sunday, February 21 in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.  All proceeds from STIR IT 28 will go to Yéle Haiti and Share Our Strength .   This event is part of a month-long initiative to raise funds for the nation as it recovers from the devastating earthquake which struck last month.  The ladies are looking for food bloggers, home cooks, chefs and restaurants (28 per city) who are willing to donate 2-3 dishes that will feed 15-20 people each. It's not too late for you to contribute your culinary creations to the cause!  If you like to contribute dishes or volunteer at the Atlanta event, click here to contact Bren.  Here are the folks who are already on board for STIR IT 28 Atlanta:
**Just added: A special raffle hour.  Raffle items include a delicious personal chef dinner catered by Bren, C.B. Herrera jewelry, 3-piece custom candles, and special packages of "Stir It Up" gourmet coffee beans (courtesy of Marley Coffee).

Advance tickets to the Atlanta STIR IT 28 event are now on sale at a cost of $30 per person (a very limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $40).  There'll be a variety of scrumptious dishes to enjoy, complimentary wine courtesy of Montaluce Winery, two (cash) bars, and entertainment provided by DJ Rev Lee.  There will also be a special performance by a popular Atlanta-based artist (it's a surprise)!   The STIR IT 28 event promises to be a great evening of food and fun for a worthy cause.  To purchase your ticket(s), please click here to visit Bren's site and click on the STIR IT 28 logo on the right side of the page.  When you purchase, be sure to indicate that you are attending the Atlanta event.   If you would like to make a monetary donation towards STIR IT 28, please follow the same link.  Again, all funds raised will go directly to Share Our Strength and Yéle Haiti.

Even if you are unable to attend the event on the 21st, there are still other ways you can help.  Please visit Bren's STIR IT 28 Page for all the details.

  2. Keep Haiti in your hearts on Valentines Day! Instead of a traditional card, I’ve posted a photo of my better half on the Haiti: Wall against Hunger – at http://wall.wfp.org
