You are invited to the GCFA’s online Pampered Chef event. Come peruse for free!

January 27 at 8:00am until February 7

Benefits the Greater Chicago Ferret Association a 501c3 certified Not-For-Profit

Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day by adding some cookery to our kitchens and raise some “dough” for the shelter ferrets! Do you like cooking or know someone who does? Looking for simpler ways to make yummy things? Need easier storage ideas for your batches of ferret soupies? Or maybe you just tend to ruin the average cookware with use?

During the event our Pampered Chef Consultant will introduce different products and recipes and provide instructions on how to accomplish them. The ferrets challenge you to find at least one item to add to your cooking arsenal and use it to honor your honeys on Valentine’s Day!

Please share the event (links in the dates) with friends, family and co-workers—every purchase helps the ferrets in the shelter.
