A team sponsored by Fantasy of Flight is hoping to end breast cancer one step at a time with the sale of their new “Cooking for the Cure-Fantasy of Flight for the Fight” cookbook, a collection of 150 recipes including main dishes, sides, desserts, as well as a glossary of cooking terms, charts and conversions.
The cookbook is for sale online or at the Fantasy of Flight gift shop in Polk City, Florida, for $10. The entire $10 purchase price will go to the fight against breast cancer, with 85% of the funds going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and 15% to the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund. The Fantasy of Flight gift shop is open at no charge seven days a week during regular attraction hours, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The cookbook will be available for sale until Nov. 1.
The Fantasy of Flight team, comprised of five walkers from the Lakeland area, will participate in “The Breast Cancer 3-Day benefitting Susan G.Komen for the Cure,” a 60-mile fundraising and awareness walk to be held in Tampa, Oct. 30-Nov. 1. This marks the second year the team has participated in the walk, and the new cookbook is just one of many fundraisers the team is using to collect money for the cause. The Tampa walk is just one of 15 events nationwide.
“I’m so proud to lend the Fantasy of Flight name to our incredibly dedicated team of walkers, their amazing cookbook and to this very worthwhile cause,” said Kermit Weeks, founder and creator of Fantasy of Flight. “Cancer has personally affected several of our employees and members of the team, so I know that our walkers are taking this fundraising endeavor very seriously. I wholeheartedly applaud their tireless efforts. The Fantasy of Flight 3-Day team is an inspiration to us all.”
