Eat, Explore, Tour at Baker Ranch in Lake Forest

On behalf of Baker Ranch, I would like to extend a special invitation to you to join us for an unveiling event on February 21 from 11am to 4pm, at Baker Ranch in Lake Forest.

Baker Ranch is a community of brand new homes in Lake Forest that epitomizes family-friendly, resort-style living in Southern California. I would encourage you to take a look at the website HERE for more information on this incredible community. On Saturday, February 21, Baker Ranch will be unveiling plans for all of their future parks, and will include a virtual tour of “Promenade Park,” a new community park that will not only be a great place for families with kids to play, but will also provide residents with a safe means to travel from one end of the community to the other out of the way of traffic. But that’s not the best part of this event!

Renowned chef Richard Blais of Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” will be making a special appearance at the unveiling and will be doing a cooking demonstration. And, Spa Gregorie's will be at the event as well, giving free massages to people who tour the model homes.

Although this event is open to the public, as a blogger you will have the opportunity to sit in a reserved front row seat at Chef Blais's kitchen counter for the cooking demonstration. You will be seated prior to the public entering so that you can watch the chef and sous chefs prepare. You will also receive 2 signed copies of Chef Blais's cookbook Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate; one for yourself and one to give away to your fans/followers. Not only is this a great opportunity for you to get the inside scoop on some of the amazing things that Lake Forest has in store, it’s also your chance for an up close and personal look at some delicious dishes prepared by a prominent chef. In addition, you’ll have the chance to get some design inspiration from our gorgeous award-winning model homes.

Baker Ranch is offering so many amazing perks at this unveiling, and we want to give as many people as possible access to this awesome event, but we need your help! What we would like from you is:

·      To write up a blog post about the event based on the information above, and to share it with your followers about 7-10 days prior to the event and promote it on your social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, and other social media channels of your choosing).

·      Set up a giveaway for Richard Blais’s book, and have entrants “like” the Baker Ranch Facebook page HERE, follow them on Instagram HERE, and follow them on Twitter HERE in order to win.

·      To post on your social media channels during your attendance at the event; specifically posts about our community amenities, and model homes, Baker Ranch is a beautiful, brand new, new home community and we want to show that off.
