LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Moms do it all, and to show them just how bright they shine, California Pizza Kitchen (“CPK”), the authority in creative dining with a California vibe, is honoring mothers across the country with its second annual Dear Mom, For You, I Wish photo contest. The contest calls for CPK fans to share their love for Mom by submitting a Mother’s Day wish online at cpk.com/dearmom or by posting a photo on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #CPKDearMom #Contest. Guests who dine at their nearest CPK may also write their Mother’s Day wish on a “Dear Mom, For You, I Wish” coaster, snap a picture and post it to Twitter or Instagram using the contest hashtags. One lucky winner will have his or her wish for Mom granted!
“Mother’s Day is about celebrating the women in our lives who have raised us, taught us strength and courage, and above all, have shown us unconditional love,” said Ashley Ceraolo, senior vice president of marketing and beverage at California Pizza Kitchen. “Last year we introduced our ‘Dear Mom, For You, I Wish’ contest as a way to thank our loyal guests and moms everywhere, by granting a special Mother’s Day wish. The outpouring of love and stories shared touched our hearts, and we are honored and excited to help make another special Mother’s Day wish come true this year.”
Ceraolo continued, “There’s no greater joy than sharing a smile with Mom over a delicious, fresh meal and a glass of bubbles, and we welcome you and your family to share that special time in one of our restaurants, too.”
Last year, CPK granted a special Mother’s Day wish for Tampa, Fla. resident Sarah Brennick, in honor of her late mother, Amelia Ferranto. Sarah’s wish was to make a donation in Amelia’s name to a local foster home as a symbol of gratitude for her mother fostering and adopting her and to extend the love and care she showed to helping more children. Discover Sarah’s heartfelt story and see how CPK made her wish come true by viewing the tribute video here.
CPK fans have two ways to share their original Mother’s Day wish: (1) they can submit their wish at www.cpk.com/dearmom or (2) they can post a photo along with their wish on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #CPKDearMom #Contest. The contest ends on May 31. All approved photos entered will be displayed in an online gallery. California Pizza Kitchen will choose one lucky winner to have his or her wish granted at up to a $4,000 value.
