Melissa Joan Hart Teams Up With Pillsbury To Inspire Families & Launches “Sweet Sunday” Contest

Actress, mother and star of the new ABC Family sitcom, “Melissa & Joey,” premiering August 17, Melissa Joan Hart, has teamed up with Pillsbury® to inspire families nationwide to recapture Sunday mornings as a time for togetherness. With busy work schedules and the tolls of day to day life, nearly four in five Americans (78 percent) find it difficult to spend quality time with their loved ones, even on the one day of the week many find best suited for family time – Sunday.

“As a wife, actress, business owner and mom to two young boys, it can be difficult to find time as a family, but I can always count on Sunday mornings as the perfect occasion to relax and spend time with them,” said Melissa Joan Hart. “I’m partnering with Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls to launch the My Sweet Sunday Moment contest, a call for families to reclaim this special time together. On Sunday mornings, I’ve found that Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect, easy treat to bring my family together around the kitchen.”

To help your family enjoy that special Sunday time together, Melissa and Pillsbury are offering you and your family a chance to win a seven-day getaway to sunny California! Individuals are invited to enter the My Sweet Sunday Moment contest by logging-on to Pillsbury.com/SweetSunday and sharing a story about why their family loves Sundays, and why they want more of them. The winner will receive a seven-day “week of Sundays” family vacation to California, including a visit to area theme parks and Melissa Joan Hart’s sweet shop, SweetHarts.

From now through September 2, 2010 consumers will have a chance to enter the contest. Three entrants will be selected as finalists. Finalists will receive prizes for being selected and will be professionally filmed by a video crew to visually represent their contest entry. The public will vote on these videos as well as on the original written entry.

Beginning September 23, vote for your favorite finalist, then see if you’re an instant winner of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls or a $25 Visa gift card.
