Bachelor Pad Stars Kiptyn and Tenley Host Valentine’s Day Fundraiser at Sprinkles La Jolla
On Friday, Feb. 10, 2012 popular sweet treat bakery Sprinkles La Jolla will be starting the Valentine’s weekend early with an in-store appearance from local celebrity love birds Kiptyn and Tenley from the Bachelor and Bachelor Pad. The couple will be serving Sprinkles’ signature cupcakes to fans and patrons from noon – 2 p.m. on Friday. A portion of the proceeds will be going to Life Rolls On, a charity that supports young people who have been affected by spinal cord injuries.
During the couple’s two hour appearance, all proceeds from Sprinkles’ Red Velvet, and gluten-free Red Velvet cupcakes will be donated to the charity.
Life Rolls On, also known as LRO, was officially recognized as a non-profit organization in 2002 and was created by professional surfer Jesse Billauer who had sustained a serious spinal cord injury in 1996. Since its beginnings, the organization has garnered the attention and support of many celebrities and figureheads, including Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Jason Mraz, and now the Kiptyn and Tenley. The organization’s mission is to fund spinal cord injury research and spinal cord injury education programs. Their signature event, They Will Surf Again, is held in coastal cities throughout theUS, and allows paraplegics and quadriplegics to experience the sport using specialized equipment.
Kiptyn and Tenley have been long-time supporters of the charity Life Rolls On, and were spotted at the organization’s 8th annual gala this past fall. Cupcake lovers and Kiptyn and Tenley fanatics alike are encouraged to visit Sprinkles La Jolla this Friday from noon – 2 p.m. to meet the couple, support the empowering cause and enjoy a sweet start to the weekend.
