WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!! It took a lot of hard work from the team at MY 103.9 but HOLY COW is this going to HUGE! It’s so size LARGE that Ben Starr from MasterChef Season 2 and my brother from another mother David Martinez from MasterChef Season 3 will be there to help!
My103.9 and Cold Stone Creamery® are joining forces in celebrating the life of Ryan Roberts – a young boy who garnered national attention by inspiring thousands of “banana split parties” across the world – with a banana split party of their own at Dave & Buster’s in Tempe, AZ on July 28th, 2012. The event will benefit the patients at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Ryan was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect in September of 2010 and passed July 10th. A Facebook event page was created by a family friend inviting families to “break the rules” and enjoy a banana split for dinner with their children in honor of Ryan since Ryan would never be able to enjoy one himself.
Ryan’s Banana Split Party is the first in a series of my “Random Act of Kindness” and will be the biggest ice cream party in the history of Phoenix! My fellow MasterChef contestants Ben Starr and David Martinez will help serve up banana splits provided by Cold Stone Creamery®. You could also win some of our best dishes, including Ben’s Carrot Cake and my I Hope He Chokes Pie. We’re even raffling off the chance to have David Martinez and I crash your kitchen and cook YOU dinner!
The party kicks off at 11:00 AM and the first 200 people in attendance will receive a banana split, a beverage, one (1) Dave & Buster’s Power Card for all-day unlimited gaming and two (2) raffle tickets to win various prizes for only $10. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased at $2 per ticket with 100% of all proceeds benefitting Phoenix Children’s Hospital. I can’t wait to see you there!
