If you don't have this on your calendars already, I want to make sure you all know that Saturday, January 23rd, is National Pie Day.

Last year, we held our first "Pie it Forward" event with huge success and we want to do it again this year. On Friday, January 22nd, we will deliver free apple pies to celebrate National Pie Day. These pies are not from me, but are from YOU!

Just tell us why you want to "pie it forward" to someone 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 an apple pie 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 Friday, January 22nd. Don't forget to give us your name and daytime phone number so we can contact you if your entry is selected. We will take requests until 5:30 on Thursday, January 21th.
  • 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 12 deserving entries. Unfortunately, all requests can not be filled. Delivery times are up to Cheri's Bakery and , 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. This was so much fun last year, we have made it an annual event.

Why not start 2010 in a positive way! No dessert evokes a warmer memories and goodwill than pie.
