Fla. --- Del Webb Communities, hosted “Cook for the Cure” fundraisers recently and helped raise more than $13,840 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure cancer foundation.

Sean Strickler, vice president of sales of Del Webb, said Del Webb hosted “Cook for the Cure” simultaneously in five Del Webb Florida communities, including  Del Webb Stone Creek in Ocala, Sweetwater by Del Webb in Jacksonville, Riverwood at Nocatee by Del Webb in Ponte Vedra, Del Webb Orlando in Davenport, and Del Webb Southshore Falls in Apollo Beach near Tampa.

Residents contributed donations and bid on silent auction items, Strickler reported.

1,000 Cooks for the Cure is part of Cook for the Cure®, a decade-long partnership between Komen and KitchenAid, which has raised more than $8 million for the cause through the sale of pink cooking products, celebrity chef auctions and grass-roots initiatives. Now, Del Webb is lending its community amenities centers and enlisting enthusiastic residents for the cause. While Cook for the Cure offers ways to support the cause year-round, the goal of this initiative is to enlist 1,000 cooks to host gatherings during these specific dates.
