There are THREE different days this week where we are giving you the opportunity to do some good for organizations that are very special to us.
One is our traditional “Benefit Day” and the other two are part of nationwide fundraising efforts. Here’s the summary.
Monday, September 21, 2009
World Alzheimer’s Day – The Alzheimer’s Association is near and dear to my heart as my stepfather suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease. Monday is World Alzheimer’s Day and the Association is encouraging people to “go purple” on Monday by wearing purple to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s. We are doing a special cupcake on Monday called “Virgil’s Purple” in honor of my stepfather. It is our White Chocolate Marionberry Cupcake which has a lovely light purple marion berry icing.
We will be donating 50% of our sales of “Virgil’s Purple” cupcake to the Alzheimer’s Association of Oregon for one day only, Monday September 21
Tuesday September 22, 2009
American Cancer Society – Another extremely important organization that tugs at my heart, having lost a few family members to cancer, too. Our traditional benefit day, we will donate 5% of ALL sales this day to the American Cancer Society.
Friday September 25, 2009
Cupcake Mission – We join other bakeries across the country in donating a portion of our proceeds on Friday to the Michael J. Fox foundation, whose mission is to raise awareness and money for Parkinson’s Disease research. My mother has been living with Parkinson’s Disease for over 15 years and fights a courageous struggle; she’s my hero! And she’s super cute. Here is is with my equally adorable husband.
Please place orders or come in to help any or all of these wonderful organizations. Their work is so important.
You may be asking…how can I help?
It’s easy, just call ahead (if you can and your order is for more than a dozen) or stop in and pick up cupcakes on the day you’d like to support. Think of any future parties or events, order and pay on a benefit day and pick your cupcakes up anytime in the future. Drop in and get cupcakes to take in to your office for an afternoon snack or to take home for dessert.
