MFT Eats: Community Cookbook Fundraiser – A Holiday Collection
The Matt Fetick Team, a real estate group in the Brandywine Valley, is cultivating community support through local holiday recipes in the form of a cookbook. From appetizers to main dishes, desserts, and cocktails, this cookbook – featuring real family recipes from clients, team members, and members of the community – is set to benefit Kennett Area Community Service (KACS).
The cookbook is for sale for $20.00. All of the proceeds will be donated to KACS, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening Southern Chester County’s community through food, housing, and crisis services.
Community service is at the core of who MFT is, so when an agent suggested KACS for the fundraiser, the team asked themselves, “What can we do that’s going to help raise money for them?”
Kelsey Floyd, Director of Marketing for MFT, said, “We always like to do something for the holidays, and this year was a rough one for a lot of people.” Floyd continued, “It really goes along with who the team is and what we do for the community. We really want to help; that’s what we’re here for, whether it’s real-estate or not.”
MFT has made it their goal to raise $10,000.00, which means selling 500 cookbooks by December 1. The team plans to have cookbooks delivered by December 15, just in time for holiday cooking or as a meaningful gift.
Floyd said the team feels confident they will exceed their goal of 50 recipes with submissions continuing through Wednesday, November 25. MFT will cover all publication costs and plans to utilize a local printer.
Purchase your cookbook here by Tuesday, December 1, to help support the work KACS does. Hopefully, this may be the first of many volumes to come.
