Fundraising Opportunities

    Chef Mark Kalix is proud to give back to the community with the help of corporate partner Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom.  One of the few ways to enjoy an in-home cooking class other then purchasing a premium appliance package at your local Appliance Factory location is to bid on a cooking class at a live auction for an organization that Chef Mark is supporting in the greater Denver area. Chef Mark brings the entire experience to your auction winner's home. Find details and event dates at Chef Mark's Facebook page.  

  Local Celebrity Chef Mark Kalix works with Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom as their Resident Chef.  When a customer purchases a qualifying premium appliance packages, Chef Mark comes to their home with a complimentary, hands on cooking class for up to 10 people as way to say thank you for the business. This is also a chance to show the homeowner how to get the most out of their new appliances.  He provides all of the food and equipment and even brings aprons and custom recipes. The cooking class is $3,500 in value.   


  If you would like Chef Mark to attend your gala at a live auction for an in- home cooking class, please send a message with your information on the Contact page or fill out the donation request located here.


  We always request the following for a donation of a cooking class:

-Live auction item only.

-An invitation for our Local Celebrity Chef to attend the event so he can see firsthand how the auction item is represented.

-The ability to speak at the event and/or have a short video played to show the audience what they are bidding on.  Our Chef has spoken at many events and is easily recognized from local television, radio, and print media. 

-A mention for Appliance Factory and Mattress Kingdom in the event program.


  Chef Mark proudly supports organizations such as Public and Private Schools, Animal Shelters, Medical research organizations, and other local organizations that support the community. The in-home cooking classes have gone for auction items $3,000-$9,000.  If this seems like a good fit for your fundraiser feel free to reach out to me with a request.
