Press Release 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, MAY 2010

CUPCAKECAMP COMES TO CHARLESTON – DEBUT AT ALOFT CHARLESTON AIRPORT & CONVENTION CENTER 

CupcakeCamp Charleston is announcing its premiere event at Aloft Charleston Airport & Convention Center this fall.  Mark your calendars for November 6, 2010, 3-5 pm where Aloft Charleston will open its doors to cupcake enthusiasts from around the lowcountry.  This FREE event will bring together cupcake connoisseurs and local companies to showcase their products.

An event for cupcake lovers:  Why? Because we love cupcakes!  Bring and share your cupcakes or just come to eat!  You do not have to bring cupcakes to attend.  Best of all, it's FREE.  Bakers, Volunteers and Eaters are encouraged to attend.  A highlight of the event includes an amateur and professional bakers competition for Most Unique Ingredients, Best Charleston Themes and Best Decorated Cupcake.

CupcakeCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and eat cupcakes in an open environment.  This is about bringing the community together, allowing people to make new friends who share a common interest (in this case, cupcakes) and can be seen as a networking opportunity for those looking for work.  And what better place than at one of Charleston's swankiest venues, Aloft Charleston!  The state-of-the-art facility designed with a contemporary feel, Aloft Charleston hosts receptions, music, corporate and cultural events.  Aloft Charleston offers atmospheric public spaces designed to draw guests to mix and mingle in the communal lobby as they play a game of pool or grab a drink with friends at the re:mix SM bar.  With 136 spacious rooms and spa-like bathrooms, an indoor pool,  and access for easy shopping, Aloft Charleston is an ideal venue for business and leisure travelers looking for a respite within a short distance of downtown Charleston and all the many local attractions. Located at the Tanger Outlets and International Parkway, Aloft Charleston (4875 Tanger Outlet Boulevard, North Charleston, SC 29418) is convenient for lounge and leisure.  For more information on Aloft Charleston, visit www.starwoodhotels.com/alofthotels

CupcakeCamp Charleston is now accepting bakers and volunteers.  Please complete registration forms at www.cupcakecampcharleston.blogspot.com.  For sponsorship opportunities and more information, please email cupcakecampcharleston@gmail.com.

"what is your cupcake name?"

It has been a busy few weeks. Thanks for keeping our cupcakes in a row with your emails and support. We are up to 441 Twitterers and 100 "likes" or "fans" on Facebook. We met with a museum and a charity organization. There are possibly three more organizations that we're hoping to meet with soon. The biggest challenge is finding a FREE venue. If anyone can help, we could definitely use it! We are searching for a venue that can possibly host 200-400 sweet tooths with ample tables and chairs, too. Fall or next Spring is the ideal time for cupcakecamp Charleston, too.

We are also still looking for a ton of help, too. We cannot do this without the you, the community! We need volunteers, bakers and eaters. Spread the word like it's your favorite icing, yo! Thanks so much!
