Raise a Glass and a Slice to Mom This Mother’s Day! California Pizza Kitchen Celebrates Moms with Dear Mom, For You, I Wish Contest

Now through May 31, CPK fans can enter for the chance to have a
special wish granted for their mom

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Moms do it all, and to show them just how bright they shine, California
Pizza Kitchen
(“CPK”), the authority in creative dining with a
California vibe, is honoring mothers across the country with its second
annual Dear
Mom, For You, I Wish
photo contest. The contest calls for CPK fans
to share their love for Mom by submitting a Mother’s Day wish online at cpk.com/dearmom
or by posting a photo on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags
#CPKDearMom #Contest. Guests who dine at their nearest CPK may also
write their Mother’s Day wish on a “Dear Mom, For You, I Wish” coaster,
snap a picture and post it to Twitter or Instagram using the contest
hashtags. One lucky winner will have his or her wish for Mom granted!

“Mother’s Day is about celebrating the women in our lives who have
raised us, taught us strength and courage, and above all, have shown us
unconditional love,” said Ashley Ceraolo, senior vice president of
marketing and beverage at California Pizza Kitchen. “Last year we
introduced our ‘Dear Mom, For You, I Wish’ contest as a way to thank our
loyal guests and moms everywhere, by granting a special Mother’s Day
wish. The outpouring of love and stories shared touched our hearts, and
we are honored and excited to help make another special Mother’s Day
wish come true this year.”

Ceraolo continued, “There’s no greater joy than sharing a smile with Mom
over a delicious, fresh meal and a glass of bubbles, and we welcome you
and your family to share that special time in one of our restaurants,

Last year, CPK granted a special Mother’s Day wish for Tampa, Fla.
resident Sarah Brennick, in honor of her late mother, Amelia Ferranto.
Sarah’s wish was to make a donation in Amelia’s name to a local foster
home as a symbol of gratitude for her mother fostering and adopting her
and to extend the love and care she showed to helping more children.
Discover Sarah’s heartfelt story and see how CPK made her wish come true
by viewing the tribute video here.

CPK fans have two ways to share their original Mother’s Day wish: (1)
they can submit their wish at www.cpk.com/dearmom
or (2) they can post a photo along with their wish on Twitter or
Instagram using the hashtags #CPKDearMom #Contest. The contest ends on
May 31. All approved photos entered will be displayed in an online
gallery. California Pizza Kitchen will choose one lucky winner to have
his or her wish granted at up to a $4,000 value.
