Good morning. I'm Brian Maynard. I'm from KitchenAid. We started
a program several years ago called Cook for the Cure,
and through the generosity of people like Jacque and Claudine,
people who have attended this event, done all kinds of
things, we've raised over $8 million to fight breast cancer.
[APPLAUSE] So, normally what we do is we auction off
a mixer that Jac and Claudine will sign for you.
And we'll do that today. But we're also going to
auction off the plate. We started a program to get
people to cook and to support the cause of fighting
breast cancer called Pass the Plate. You can find more
information about it at cookforthecure.com but the idea is Each
of those plate has a unique serial number on the
back. You cook something, you present it to your friend,
you register the plate at cookforthecure.com, you take a picture,
you talk about why you did it, and a contribution
gets made and then you ask them to pass it
on and on and on. So it get's people to
cook, so what you're going to buy is the plate
that is going to be passed to you by Jacques.

of $1,000? Come on, it's breast cancer, it's a tax
write off, come on, $1,000, thank you. I have $1,000,
