Benefit Days are now BENEFIT MONTHS!

PLEASE JOIN US IN CELEBRATING the return of our “Benefit Program”!

New and improved because it lasts all month now! Your purchases any day, all the time, without exception will help us contribute to a lucky local non profit.

We will donate  a portion of all sales to a new non profit organization each month.

The FIRST BENEFICIARY in our new program is (…..drumroll please….) our great friends at PHAME ACADEMY!

That’s right! All your Cupcake Jones purchases in the month of June will benefit PHAME ACADEMY! What is PHAME? It’s a fine and performing arts academy for adults with developmental disabilities. And it’s AWESOME!

June 23-24, 2012 PHAME’s performing arts students present “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. We dropped by their rehearsal on Saturday and surprised the students with some sweet inspiration as well as an announcement about our benefit month for them. Check out a quick video of our announcement (AND their reaction!) and learn more about PHAME here.

Check out our June menu to plan ahead….Remember that phone orders, wedding orders, pre orders and walk in customers all count. So plan those parties, preorder for your office, drop in for treats for that meeting, book that wedding (even if it’s in 2013!). Any and all revenue in June qualifies.

Want to know more about PHAME? Check out their website.

See you at the bakery and thank you to all our friends and customers who make it possible for us to give.

NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY and a Benefit Day

Every year, there is a lengthy discussion online about when National Cupcake Day is. We love holiday flavors around here so we settled on the one in December; December 15th as a matter of fact. It also happens to be a Tuesday so it’s a Benefit Day too, for Make a Wish Foundation! (We will donate 5% of sales all day to Make A Wish Foundation!!!!!)

What does it mean that we are celebrating National Cupcake Day? Glad you asked! Lots of fun stuff that day…

1) All day long, every 15th transaction is free! (Up to $36 value). Why, because it’s on the 15th, silly. (Includes both phone and walk in orders)

2) Come in and enter our drawing for free t-shirts, cupcake gift certificates, onesies, and more! GRAND PRIZE DRAWING for a night out on the town, ON US! Two tickets to a 2009 – 2010 Portland Center Stage Production*, one night at Hotel Monaco, a Bottle of Wine, and Dinner at Fish Grotto.

3) On a whim, we might give away some hot drinks so you can warm up, some cupcakes, and some other stuff. You never know…

Come and help us celebrate National Cupcake Day. Remember that all orders placed on Tuesday help us donate more and more to Make A Wish Foundation, our Beneficiary for the day. Call in your holiday orders on Tuesday to help Make  A Wish Foundation grant more and more wishes.

Thanks and HAPPY CUPCAKE DAY!

See you Tuesday!

Benefit Day Tuesday benefiting Metropolitan Family Service

logo_title

Every Tuesday Cupcake Jones donates 5% of our sales to a different non profit organization. 

This week, our beneficiary is “Metropolitan Family Service“.

Here is a bit about them from their web site:

In the post-World War II era, United Way recommended that a non-sectarian family counseling social service agency be established in Portland, Oregon. In 1950 Metropolitan Family Service — then Family Counseling Service — opened its doors 
in response to that recommendation and local area social concerns.

Over the last century Metropolitan Family Service has moved from a single service agency to an agency that provides multiple distinct, but related services that meet the ever-changing needs of the community. Today those services help children succeed, strengthen families and their connections to community, and help older adults live independently.

Our staff of 260 — most of whom work part time — shares our commitment to professionalism and excellence with 1,400 skilled and caring volunteers who contribute 173,000 hours in the Portland, Oregon tri-county area. Metropolitan Family Service makes connections that strengthen the lives of 37,000 low-income individuals and families each year. We provide services at more than 145 sites, including nearly 70 schools.”

We think their work is wonderful! Here’s how you can help them:
