QUESTION ONE (4/18 at 10:00PM): The Grannie Bake Off is sponsored by the National Committee of Grandparents for Children’s Rights. Founded in 2002 in Long Island after a Grandmother lost custody of her granddaughter after her daughter’s death, she joined together with Grandmothers from all over the country and ultimately founded a national movement. If you didn’t realize how important a committee like this is, check out their website because this many children nationwide are being raised by their grandparents. http://grandparentsforchildren.org/about.asp  To reiterate, how many million children nationwide are being raised by their grandparents? Answering for this question is NOW OVER, the answer was 2.9 million children. Try your luck with Question FIVE!

QUESTION TWO (4/18 at 7:30PM): Grannie’s Bake-Off this coming Sunday is bringing together both amateur and professional bakers to compete in baking and decorating contests. A panel of judges will be judging the amateur categories and members of the public will be judging the professional bakers. One of the bakers participating on Sunday is Bake For You, for a pair of tickets to Grannie’s Bake-Off can you tell me what kind of cookie is Bake For You’s signature cookie? http://www.bakeforyou.com/ Answering for this question is NOW OVER, the answer was White Chocolate Chip & Craisin. Try your luck with Question FIVE!

QUESTION THREE (4/19 at 10:00AM): As I mentioned before, Grannie’s Bake-Off brings together amateur and professional bakers to take part in baking and decorating contests. The general public attending will judge the professional bakers and three local judges will handle the amateur bakers. One of the judges in particular is well-known from his appearance on a popular Food Network show. What is the name of the popular Food Network show one of the judges appeared on and what dish that he made did one of the judges refer to as the “Best thing I have eaten on [THISSHOW]”?  http://www.ricorlando.com/bio.html Answering for this question is NOW OVER, the answer was Chopped and his dish was Rum-Raisin Jerk Quail. Try your luck with Question FIVE!

( @PriceChopper ) Price Chopper started locally in Schenectady, NY in 1932 and now has stores all over New York as well as Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. If you end up needing to purchase tickets for Grannie’s Bake-Off, you can find them at your local Price Chopper for $10 a piece. Not only is Price Chopper one of the businesses currently sponsoring this event but they’re also in part sponsoring an event going on at the New York State Museum until next week. TWO PART QUESTION, MUST GET BOTH ANSWERS RIGHT TO QUALIFY. What is the name of the event they’re sponsoring and what organization is it benefiting? http://www.pricechopper.com/ Answering for this question is NOW OVER, the answer was CANstruction. Try your luck with Question FIVE!

QUESTION FIVE (04/21/12 at 10:00AM): I’ve asked a bunch of questions about the sponsors and some of the judges but since this is the last question and the event is TOMORROW, I figured I’d make it easy just so I can give away these tickets and you can go which I know is what everyone wants. In that case, all I want to know for a FREE pair of tickets is- what hotel is Grannie’s Bake-Off being held in? Not only have I mentioned it on my Facebook and Twitter numerous occasions and there’s a GOOD chance it’s even mentioned earlier in this blog entry, but you can find the answer here too: http://grandparentsforchildren.org/events Good Luck! 🙂
