Rachael kicks off Sweeps with former President Bill Clinton who visits the show to announce a partnership between the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and Rachael's new charitable organization, The Yum-o! Organization -- aimed at improving how American kids eat.  The former President is talking about how he's helping to fight childhood obesity in Rachael's kitchen while helping her prepare simple supper solutions for families on a budget who can't find time to cook.

On April 30th, Rachael Ray documents her trip to Enterprise, Alabama where she hosted a prom for students who lost their high school after a deadly tornado swept through their town.   As a tribute to the bravery of the students and in memory of those lost, Rachael gives Enterprise High School's Class of 2007 a night they'll never forget.  From the decorations and dresses to limos and tuxes, Rachael covers all the arrangements including a delicious menu she designed.  Plus, musical guest Mandy Moore performs.
