Let’s Eat Cake, an amazing fundraiser hosted by the equally amazing Melissa Margarita-DiStefano, is coming up quick: Tuesday, February 17th at the Plaza Paramount Hotel! Let’s Eat Cake is a cake decorating competition with all proceeds going to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Learn more about the fundraiser right here.

In an effort to make sure we get the word out to everyone (and raise money), we are starting this chain-blog (Ok, not sure if that is correct terminology. But it’s like a chain letter so let’s just go with it, shall we?)

Here’s what we need you to do…Repost this post (or create your own new version) on your blog and ask others to post it on their blogs. Melissa will donate one dollar to the fundraiser for EVERY BLOG that posts on Let’s Eat Cake this week! With the power of the blogosphere, that can QUICKLY add up! Let’s make Melissa Pay! Once you have reposted it, leave a comment letting us know that you posted it along with the url to the blog. It’s for a great cause and it will be fun to see how far it will go! So lets do it… Lets blog it forward and raise money for a great cause!!!

**Kudos to Unique Designs for creating this fun chain-blog effort!**

P.S. Ok, Melissa… time to kick in another $1! ;)

P.S.S. If any business wants to help out with a matching challenge, Melissa would love to hear from you!


American Idol Party Inspiration

32771

American Idol starts back January 13 at 8/7c on Fox!  Sounds like a good idea for a party to me!  Get everyone together to laugh over the first auditions and then have them over when the voting begins.  Drop the names in a hat and vote right in your living room.  Announce who "your" winner is at the end of the season and see if its the same as the "actual" winner.  I would serve light food and make it a casual gathering.  If you wanted to go all out, you could buy some red fabric and make it a "Red Carpet" event.  Bonus-if you have Rock Band or Guitar Hero, that would be awesome to play after the show and have your own competition.

Here is the schedule for the upcoming shows from americanidol.com:
