"Pie it Forward"

If you don't have this on your calendars already, I want to make sure you all are know that next Friday, January 23rd, is National Pie Day. We are celebrating all week long by sampling different pie flavors and if you purchase a whole pie, you will receive a 10% off coupon towards your next pie purchase!
On Friday, we will deliver 20 free apple pies to "Pie it Forward" to celebrate National Pie Day. These pies are not from me, but can be from YOU!
Just tell us why you want to "pie it forward" to some one special or to a certain business or organization. Maybe you just want to say "thank you" to a friend for always being there to help, or "I am thinking of you at this difficult time", or perhaps there is a special organization that is always giving, without asking for anything in return. This is your chance to "pie it forward" to someone for doing something nice for you. We will deliver these pies on your behalf. Here is what you need to do:
  • Tell us in 100 words or less why your friend, family member, business or organization is deserving of a special "pie it forward" pie. What have they done for you?
  • Send us their name, address and where we can find them on National Pie Day, Friday, January 23rd. Don't forget to give us your name and daytime phone number so we can contact you if you are selected. We will take requests until 5:30 on Wednesday, January 21st.
  • E-mail us your information. Our address to receive the requests is PUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE, PIE IT FORWARD. (This is only for receiving requests, we do not take orders from this address.)
  • You may also fill-out a form here at the bakery.

We are going to choose 20 deserving entries. All requests can not be filled. Delivery times are up to Cheri's Bakery and unfortunately, if we are not able to reach someone at the time of delivery, another entry will be selected.

I can't wait to see the surprise of people's faces when the get their pie. I hope this goes well and we can make it an annual event.

Why not start 2009 in a positive way! No dessert evokes a warmer memories and goodwill than pie.

Have a super day!
