August 1, 2011

(Reading, PA – August 1) – Acclaimed Chef Maruc Samuelsson joins BlueStar for a great cause!  BlueStar™, the manufacturer of high-performance cooking equipment for the home, is auctioning a custom-made pink gas range to benefit the Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® via its Susan G. Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure® charity event.  The winning bidder also will receive a VIP Dinner for 6 at New York’s hottest restaurant, Red Rooster Harlem.  Award-winning Chef Marcus Samuelsson will personally cook a four-course meal for the winner and his guests.  (Dates and times to be mutually agreed upon.)

Chef and cookbook author Marcus Samuelsson was the youngest chef to ever receive two three-star ratings from The New York Times while at Aquavit as Executive Chef.  In 2010 Marcus was the winner of Top Chef Masters Season 2 and also served as the guest chef for the first State Dinner of the Obama administration.  Red Rooster Harlem reflects the roots of Harlem’s diverse population as well as Chef Marcus Samuelsson’s own rich background, while celebrating local farmers and artisanal purveyors.  Red Rooster Harlem features a lively bar and dining room, and is designed to be a place where people from near and far come to celebrate food, music, history, culture and art.

The BlueStar professional RNB – Residential Nova Burner 30″ stove has a retail price of about $4,700.  The auction ends on August 30th, and 100% of the proceeds will be contributed to the charity.  The company will provide free shipping.  If pink is not your color, you can bid on the range and select any one of BlueStar’s 190 colors, at no extra charge, and still support the cause.  And, when you’re ready to cook at home, you can do so on your new BlueStar 8-piece cookware set, valued at $595.

The pink range also will travel from BlueStar’s Pennsylvania heatquarters to New York City for the big Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure in Central Park.  For more information or to register for the Race, visit www.komennyc.org/race.
