OutRun Ovarian Cancer 5K

Hi, cookie lovers! It’s Emily from Team Smiley! This past weekend Smiley and the team hit the road for Cleveland, Ohio to attend the 12th annual OutRun Ovarian Cancer 5K! OROC, as it called, is a volunteer-driven organization that seeks to raise awareness and money for research in order to create a community of hope for those who are touched by ovarian cancer.


The event took place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The team was very busy passing out cookies to well deserving participants in the 5K and we even had to decorate a few cookies ourselves because of the high demand for smiles!  Good thing Chef Regis at Eat’n Park certified us as official Smiley Cookie decorators! We definitely made him proud!


While the team was busy passing out cookies, Smiley was showing off his awesome dance moves and channeling his inner rock star as he played air guitar! Needless to say, Smiley was totally rocking it and made lots of new friends! Stay tuned next week to see where the team is headed next!


Smiles,
Emily

Pirates Kids Day: Part 2

Hi, friends! Veronica from Team Smiley here. We are all big Bucco fans on Team Smiley, so we were super excited to be invited back for another Pittsburgh Pirate Kids Day on Federal Street! We packed the cookie cruiser with 2,300 Smiley Cookies and headed to PNC Park this past Sunday morning for the pregame extravaganza.

As we were setting up our very special Pirate Smiley Cookies (decorated with black and gold icing, and signature eye patch) Pittsburgh’s Country Radio Station, Y108, stopped by to give us a special shout on the radio! Team member Natalie prepared her voice for her radio debut and told listeners to visit our Eat’n Park booth outside PNC. Thanks Y108!


Everyone was excited to see us at another Kids Day event for our iconic cookie decorating for kiddos of all ages. Bucco fans (and even some National fans too!) made a lot of baseball themed creations that looked great!

And of course the Team couldn’t forget their pal, Smiley! Fans loved photo opportunities with Smiley, after all he does have a great smile! He also made some special friends that traveled to Pittsburgh all the way from Australia! While there are no Smiley Cookies down under, his new friends got their sweet tooth fix back at our booth.



Another great Kids Day is in the books, followed by a great win from the Pirates! Summer is winding down but keep an eye out for Smiley and the Team at more events and maybe another Pirate Kids Day appearance!  Click here to find out where we will be next!


Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @enpteamsmiley to see more of our summer adventures! 

Peace, Love, and Smiles!
Veronica

WKDD Kidz Day

Hi, Cookie Lovers! It’s Kendall from Team Smiley! This past Saturday, the Team headed to Green, Ohio for WKDD Kidz Day.  The event was hosted by the 98.1 WKDD staff and volunteers for children of all ages! There were many different booths full of games,and activities including a petting zoo, a stage for entertainment, inflatable obstacle courses and our favorite, the Eat n’ Park Team Smiley booth!


We had a blast cookie decorating with Smiley fans from all over including two cookie-lovers from out of town, who make it a priority to come visit Smiley every time they are in the area. That is some awesome cookie-dedication! The Team also saw some very artistic cookie creators and loved seeing all the smiling faces!


Also during the event, there was an amazing robot dance show where the performers moved and grooved to pop hits such as Uptown Funk! We say their best dance move was definitely the robot. Along with the dancing ‘bots, there was an animal show filled with reptiles and furry friends! There was not a dull moment all day!

Overall, the Team had a Blast at WKDD Kidz Day! Click here to see which fun-filled event Smiley and the Team with be at next! If you’re looking for a sweet deal at one of our upcoming events, download the Eat’n Park Mobile App and ask any member of Team Smiley for a special code word to unlock a coupon! Also, follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@EnPTeamSmiley) to keep updated on all things Smiley!

Over and out and keep on smiling,
Kendall
