I'm just about ready to close up this fundraiser and I am blown away by the support from the community. I have already received messages asking to be notified the next time I host this event because they would like to be a part of it!
Funds raised breakdown:
Online Donations, $225
Aquinas High School Free Dress Day, $228.45
Friday Bake Sale, $52
Saturday Bake Sale, $244
That makes this total = $954.45....and my grandparents want to donate the rest to bring the total up to $1000!!!! and, it is being matched by Borimoli Rocco! which will make this fundraiser $2000, and it ALL goes to finding a cure and better treatments for childhood cancer!
There are still two more days to make donations online by credit/debit or check. Please feel free to help us exceed our $1000 goal! http://cookiesforkidscancer.kintera.org/stephanieansell
I can't express my gratitude for all of the help I received along the way! My family (mom, sister, Isabella, Grams, Aunt Therese) came all the way from San Diego to help set up, made donations of baked goods, raffle prizes, and funds! My cousin Mo came out from Banning for the second year in a row! My fiance and daughter for putting up with my crazy non-stop talk about fundraising and baking for the last month! My friends that came out to support this cause that means sooo much to me! The girls at Kith and Kissui for making it possible to set up!!!! and of course making monetary donations too!!!!! Baked good donations from Sugar Me That and Tessie's Bakery!!! Raffle prizes from 31, Sun Bum, Dance Dimension Performing Arts Center, and Jamberry! I cannot thank all of you enough!!!! Maybe next year I can double my goal?! :D
Oh my goodness! With Valentine's Day and the holiday weekend this event creeped up on me. Yesterday Sugar Me That confirmed a donation of 3 dozen cookies, and I know they are going to be awesome! She does the best work! Thank goodness for Facebook or I probably wouldn't have found her! There are a possible 2 dozen cookies coming from a new bakery in Yucaipa too! I'm so excited to have the extra help!
Today I will be baking my heart out and packaging the raffle prizes!!! I'm really hoping this year is as big of a hit as last year :) Last year it was all rainy and cold, so this year the weather is perfect please come out and support us!
You can find us Friday 2/21 and Saturday 2/22 from 11a-3p at Kissui Baby & Children. If I get a lot of people requesting we set up Sunday as well I will, but as of now it is just Friday and Saturday.
Kissui Baby & Children is located at 5 E Citrus Avenue Suite 102, Redlands, California 92373
This morning I spent some time sending messages to local bakeries trying to get baked goods donated for the bake sale, hopefully there will be some great responses! I've already gotten responses from Sucree (who helped out last year....yummy!) and Cucamonga Cakery Co. If you are or know of any bakers that would like to help out please contact me, Stephanie, at email@example.com!
