The Pampered Chef, LTD
The Pampered Chef® began their collaboration with the American Cancer Society in 2000 with the Help Whip Cancer® campaign. Each May, independent Pampered Chef consultants raise funds from the sale of pink limited-edition products and through Help Whip Cancer Fundraiser Cooking Shows. Since the program began, Help Whip Cancer has raised more than $10 million to help the Society save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
In addition to their Help Whip Cancer efforts, Pampered Chef coworkers and independent consultants can be found each October in their communities supporting their local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® walk. As one of the largest and most successful Making Strides National Partners Program members, the company has raised the bar on recruitment and fundraising. The Pampered Chef also supports the Making Strides event by offering select pink products online each October.
The support and encouragement shown by leadership has made the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer an important part of The Pampered Chef culture. Since 2008, the company has raised nearly $1 million and was last year’s third-largest Making Strides Against Breast Cancer National Partners Program fundraising team in the country.
As a testimony to executive support from The Pampered Chef, CEO Marla Gottschalk is a member of the Illinois chapter of the American Cancer Society CEOs Against Cancer®.
