Electrolux and Kelly Ripa Host "Split for a Cause" Contest

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 Posted by Rita A

When I hear the word splits, I think of banana splits. Well here is a fun contest from Electrolux that helps in the research of Ovarian Cancer.

Kelly Ripa and Electrolux are joining forces once again to celebrate the launch of Electrolux Appliance's new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer - that's right, the familiar duo has split up. And to sweeten the celebration, they're bringing in the "Emperor of Ice Cream" Stephen Bruce, owner and founder of Serendipity 3, the landmark New York City restaurant and dessert spot, into the mix.

Kelly and Bruce teamed up earlier today to make banana splits for a cause. And now we want you to dig in, with your virtual spoon! Starting today 6/29, at, you can build your ultimate banana split using virtual ingredients from classic whipped cream to caramel sauce to rainbow sprinkles. For each "split", Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund as part of its $750,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer! From 6/29/10 - 9/7/10, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF for each banana split made, with a minimum of $35K and a maximum of $40K..

As usual, Electrolux and Kelly find new and fun ways to say thank you to those who support this great cause. Everyone who logs on to the site and builds a split will be automatically entered for a chance to win the daily prize - $50 towards sweet summer treats - and the grand prize: the new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer from Electrolux.

What are you waiting for? Make a "split" to help and you could find yourself with a new stand-alone refrigerator and freezer from Electrolux!

Disclosure: No monetary compensation was offered or accepted for this post. By posting the information provided I have the chance to win an Electrolux stand-alone refrigerator and freezer. The opinions above are my own. Others experience may vary.
