Contiki had the honor of meeting Buddy Valastro (TLC's "Cake Boss") of Carlo's Bakery, located in Hoboken, New Jersey. We are proud supporters of The Momma Mary Foundation and its first annual gala dinner in support of ALS ("Lou Gehrig's Disease) research.
The gala dinner hoped to raise over $500,000 to create awareness and raise enough support to ultimately find a cure for ALS. Contiki provided a certificate for a trip for two on our Simply Italy tour to be auctioned off at the event. As a thank you, Buddy and Carlo's Bakery baked a two-tiered Contiki cake, complete with Italian icons and Contiki's logo. Buddy even posed with the cake!
