(Long Beach, CA – February 9, 2014) In honor of National Single Awareness Day on February 15, 2015, Bahlsen North America is taking part in an unprecedented matchmaking experience for single moms and dads. The world’s largest family-owned cookie producer is teaming up with Lifestyle Expert Kerri Zane as she searches for 15 single moms and 15 single dads to bring together for a post-Valentine’s Day date night out designed especially for them.

The winners will be paired up by LA’s Elite Connections proprietary matching technique that pairs singles with the same interests and values.

Winners will also receive a $50 gift card from Following their dates, winners will receive a special delivery of Bahlsen cookies. (Total prize value: $1,200.)

Zane, an internationally recognized single mom lifestyle expert, is creating this February 15 event because she understands how difficult Valentine’s Day can be for single parents. “We concentrate so much on our children, that it can be hard to find the time (and the places) to meet the right match,” said Zane. “I’m delighted to have the support of Bahlsen, whose premium cookies are made with the highest-quality Non-GMO ingredients – so we can feel good about sharing these delicious goodies with our kids (and eating them ourselves!).”

Bahlsen’s Choco Leibniz cookies are the perfect way to celebrate each match. Each cookie brings together sweet tastes – rich butter biscuit on one side, decadent European chocolate on the other – for one amazing experience, just as this National Singles Day event intends to do for up to 15 lucky couples.
