Dear Cool, 

First of all, if you approach her directly, just be very polite, and
ask her if she might be able to do it. For example,

"Dear Mrs. De Laurentiis, 

My name is YOUR NAME and I am the chairperson [or whatever you are] of
the Indonesian Students' Association at Purdue University. On the DAY
of MONTH, at HOUR(S), we will organise a cooking competition [if it is
a charity event of a sort, for example, the benefits of the
competition go somewhere, mention it]. We would be delighted if you'd
agree to serve as the judge in this competition. If you are free on
these dates, I would be grateful if you got back to me with your
pricing for the event.

Sincerely Yours, 

(This is only an example, and I am sure that the librarian at Purdue
could help you find a book on writing letters of enquiry/request).

As for the pricing, I am afraid that I cannot tell you - this would
depend, for example, if it is a charity event (and what is the cause),
other expenses, etc. I suspect that it might cost more through All
American Speakers (they have to make something, too), but it is no
problem to ask them for a quote. You are no obligation of taking their
offer if you don't like it.

Good luck!

I am so sorry, just one more clarification, what you meant by
approaching her directly is to send her an email to, am I right?
