Country Maid Presents the West Bend Better Butter Bash

Press Release for the West Bend Better Butter Bash Presented by Country Maid - Join Us, Saturday, September 23rd, 2023. 8AM to 11AM at Country Maid, Inc. 213 4th Ave NE, West Bend, Iowa

West Bend, IA (August 10, 2023) – For over 30 years, Country Maid, Inc., has been supporting non-profit organizations and local causes through its charitable giving efforts. Now, the company is furthering its mission to “Help Others Help Each Other” by presenting the first-ever West Bend Better Butter Bash. The event will support local programs whose goal is to reduce childhood hunger in Iowa.

The Better Butter Bash is scheduled to take place on September 23, 2023, from 8AM to 11AM at Country Maid’s main office in West Bend, IA. There will be a variety of events for attendees to take part in, including a 5K walk/run/ride, a cake roll eating contest, a butter carving contest, scavenger hunts, and a breakfast bar.

All proceeds from the event will be given to organizations in Palo Alto and Kossuth County whose aim is to provide children of all ages with nutritious food during difficult times. In America, one in eight kids don’t know where their next meal will come from, especially on weekends and holiday vacations when they don’t have access to critical food programs offered by their schools. Country Maid’s goal is to raise enough money from the 5K registration and free will donations to support these groups in their efforts to provide healthy meals to children in need.

“With the Better Butter Bash, we hope we can not only gather our communities together to have some fun but also draw attention to this important cause, ensuring our local children can focus on the joy of childhood without concerns stemming from food insecurity. While we know we can have an impact as a company, we understand we’re BETTER TOGETHER,” explains Sara Blair, Human Resources Manager at Country Maid.

Registration is required in advance for the 5K run and the butter carving contest. Otherwise, there’s no pre-registration required. Parking will be available at no cost the day of the Better Butter Bash. Attendees can enter the event grounds at the Country Maid, Inc. main office from the north and follow the signs to park.
