Cupcake Wars Winner, Annette Starbuck of Goodie Girls teams up with Home Baked Beanies to create “A Sweet Trunk Show” to benefit Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting…

January 10, 2012, (Los Angeles, CA) Goodie Girls are preparing to host their second benefit with Home Baked Beanies, most popular for their “Scented Cupcake Beanie”.

Annette Starbuck, the multi-Award Winning Founder of GOODIE GIRLS exuberates a joyous passion for creating a variety of baked delights through her valiant curiosity and enchanting talent. Even more remarkable, aside from countless independent Instructional Culinary Sessions, Annette has never actually enrolled into any institutional Culinary Programs or attended Culinary School, but she’s achieved acclaimed success only through her seasoned personal experience and pure creative determination. “Baking is a passion of mine and I create every cupcake with all my heart and soul. Whether for a small occasion of getting together with Friends, BBQ’s, Showers or a big event for Charities, Weddings, or Banquets I craft each batch as I was feeding my own family – it’s who I am at the core. I am lucky to have my whole family with me on this adventure including my rock star husband Anthony, my amazing father Doug and last but definitely the most influential, my step mom Stephanie. Together we Rock the Cupcake World!”

HOME BAKED BEANIES are the first smelly hat company. The owner and creator of this new sweet idea is Tracey Scott, as well as the whole family that contributes to the designs. Smelly or not, the styles are totally unique like their cupcakes hats that smell like cupcakes as well as the hand tie rag hats, vintage shabby chic, every color, every style, and every size. They invite everyone to stop and “smell the hats“. Fans of these unique beanies can find their own Home Baked Beanie to match their personality/style at several locations including: Big Bear, CA, San Diego, CA, Los Angeles (Select boutiques), Trunk shows, holiday events and red carpet events.

READING, WRITING, IT’S EXCITING (RWE) is a nonprofit literacy program designed to improve the reading and writing skills of at-risk children. They do this by providing one-to-one writing mentors throughout the school year for kids who are chosen by their teachers to participate. The reason for RWE’s program is that research shows that if children aren’t writing and reading at their grade level by the end of second grade, they almost never catch up. Further research has also shown that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, are in prison or join gangs. And how accurate are those numbers? Several states actually base their future prison building plans on them! There are over 45,000 second grade students in L.A., and only 41% of them are proficient in writing and reading. Their goal is to help all of them… For more information about RWE, please visit: www.rweprogram.org.

Look To The Stars Reports…. Ultimate Bad Guy Does Good At Childrens Hospital…

Actor/producer/director Scott L. Schwartz recently worked on his next film in Cincinnati, OH. While Scott was in town he visited the children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, as well as The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati, on behalf of the Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation.

Scott L. Schwartz is widely known as the “Ultimate Bad Guy” from his acting career including: Ocean’s 11, 12 & 13, Starsky & Hutch, Spiderman, Fun With Dick And Jane, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Star Trek Voyager, among other feature films. Scott L. Schwartz has been visiting children’s hospitals worldwide for the past 12 years after losing his sister to lung cancer in 1998. He realizes the value and impact of making a lasting impression on children with cancer and how important it is to make each child feel special. Scott enjoys visiting pediatric hospitals and bringing what joy he can into the lives of every child he visits. They are always smiling during his visits and usually begging him to return soon.


One of the newest missions that Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation supports is Santa’s Gift. The mission of Santa’s Gift is to bring hope to hospitalized children during a traumatic time of their lives. An interactive visit with Santa allows children to forget their worries for a short period of time by bringing cheer to both the patients and their families. Each child receives an instant photo with Santa as well as an “I Am Loved” teddy bear.

The Scott L. Schwartz Children’s Foundation is making a difference in the lives of each child in need by continuing to visit hospitals worldwide, helping Santa’s Gift, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), and Toys For Tots Foundation of Seal Beach.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting teams up with celebrities at Barnes & Noble to promote literacy…

May 19, 2011 (Los Angeles, CA) The Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting! Program (RWE) is hosting a reading and literacy event at the Westside Pavilion Barnes & Noble (10850 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064) on June 4th & 7th to promote literacy and to shine a spotlight on how important it is for parents to read with their children. To help ensure this message is heard, we have invited various celebrities to read a book (Dr. Seuss or other) for twenty minutes with one of the children at our event (or to their own children). We hope the celebrity participation will help inspire other parents to undertake this all-so-important activity with their own children. Literacy experts have all stated that if parents read to, and with, their children from a young age, it would solve many of our literacy problems.

RWE is a nonprofit literacy program designed to improve the reading and writing skills of at-risk children. We do this by providing one-to-one writing mentors throughout the school year for kids who are chosen by their teachers to participate. At the end of the school year, the kids get to read one of their stories at a Barnes & Noble, and then watch in special VIP seats as actors perform them for the audience.

The reason for our program is that research shows that if children aren’t writing and reading at their grade level by the end of second grade, they almost never catch up. Further research has also shown that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, are in prison or join gangs. And how accurate are those numbers? Several states actually base their future prison building plans on them! What’s the situation like in Los Angeles? There are over 45,000 second grade students in L.A., and only 41% of them are proficient in writing and reading. Those kids need us.

Event Reading Schedule:
SATURDAY JUNE 4
2:00 – 3:00 PM: Kindergartners and 1st graders read stories
*3:00 – 4:00 PM: The RWE kids have their stories performed by actors.
*4:00 – 5:00 PM: Celebs read a book with one of their kids.

TUESDAY JUNE 7

*5:30 – 6:30 PM: The RWE kids have their stories performed by actors
6:30 – 7:30 PM: 2nd and 3rd graders read stories they’ve written.
7:30 – 8:30PM: 4th and 5th graders read stories they’ve written.

Location: Westside Pavilion Barnes & Noble (10850 West Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90064)

Confirmed Celebrities:
Scott L. Schwartz (Ocean’s 11, 13, 13, The Scorpion King), Sean Kanan (The Young & The Restless, General Hospital), Aura Imbarus (Celebrity book authorPaula Labaredas (The Critic, Showgirl), Nancy La Scala (Species 2, In The Cut), Valery Ortiz (ABC’s Family Lounge), David Fralick (The Story Of Bonnie & Clyde, The Young & The Restless “Larry Warton”), Tommy Hobson (Nickelodeon’s “The Fresh Beat Band”), Tanya Chisholm (Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush”), Catalina Rodriquez (Watch Over Me, Dexter, Cougars), Zach Callison (Hannah Montana, Sophia the Great) etc…
