“Dear Mom” Campaign Sweepstakes Features Emotional Tributes from Loyal Guests

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is one of my family's favorite restaurants to dine at. Not only does the food taste great, but it is also very family friendly and offering food even the pickiest of eaters will love.  

Non-pizza lovers like our oldest Savannah, will love the different salads and pasta dishes CPK has to offer, as well as their soups and sandwiches.  

And, don't get me started on their desserts -- just look at this mouth watering picture of their strawberry shortcake, which I recently tried and didn't want to share. :-)

So, when my family asked me where I wanted to eat for Mother's Day, I quickly responded, "California Pizza."  While we have a handful of local mom and pop pizza shops around us, nothing compares to the crispy thin crust pizzas with gourmet toppings that you get at CPK.  

Did you hear about the month-long “Dear Mom” sweepstakes that California Pizza Kitchen recently launched back on May 1st?  You may have seen some of my social shares on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts about this...but, if you didn't here is more information about the sweepstakes, which runs through May 31st and has a weekend getaway up for grabs, as well as other amazing prizes.


California Pizza Kitchen is celebrating Mother’s Day this year with a month-long “Dear Mom” sweepstakes.  CPK Pizza Dough Rewards loyalty members met at CPK’s Redondo Beach, California location to share personal letters to their mothers about how much they mean to them. The result is a video appropriately  titled “Dear Mom.” 

Some of the compelling quotes include:

 "I have learned from my mom that I can do anything; that anything is possible"

 "I remember my mom saying don't save your special things for a special occasion. Every day is 

 "My mom is love. Absolutely."

 "I wouldn't be where I am today, if it wasn't for her."

 "My mom... makes people feel beautiful about themselves."

To get your heartstrings a-tugging, check out the campaign video featuring CPK loyals reading heartwarming letters to their own moms.

The video was developed by Stun Creative in partnership with CPK and Diet CokeTM.
