I am a Denny’s Diners ambassador. I received compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
Every September, Denny’s partners with No Kid Hungry to help raise funds to support their wonderful cause of making sure children have the food they need to thrive. In support of Denny’s No Kid Hungry cause, I joined up with two local Phoenix bloggers Laura of Pink Cake Plate and Megan of Shaping Up to Be a Mom to host a “Paint the Night Orange” event at our local Denny’s.
We invited other local bloggers to party with us and had some beautiful gifts donated for a silent auction, which made the event so much fun. There was fun gift baskets, gorgeous home items, fashion pieces, and gift vouchers to pick from. I ended the night with a super cute camera charm necklace and a dozen custom decorated sugar cookies.
Of course, any event wouldn’t be complete without food. We were treated with a variety of appetizers and some yummy treats Laura create for the event including cupcakes, painted popcorn, and these adorable paintbrush rice krispie treats.
We were also treated with a wonderful guest speaker, Kathy Cano-Murillo of Crafty Chica. She taught us to set goals, and then do everything with a purpose towards meeting our goals. It was a powerful lesson on working towards what we really want to achieve.
In the end, everyone went home with a swag bag, gifts, leftover goodies, and their silent auction winnings. While the event was super fun, we all were there to remember and help support No Kid Hungry and we raise a good sum of money to help their foundation.
What is No Kid Hungry?
Would you believe that 1 in 5 children in America struggle with hunger. We aren’t talking about a 3rd world country, we are talking about America. Our own backyard. Those numbers are even higher in Arizona – 1 in 4 children face hunger.
No Kid Hungry ensures that kids start their day off right with a nutritious breakfast. They also help families by teaching them skills to shop and cook on a budget to really change and impact these families lives.
How can you make a difference? Throughout September, if you visit your local Denny’s you can make a donation to No Kid Hungry and receive coupons good for savings on diner favorites.
