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

Raffle prizes are starting to come in! We will have kids baskets this year too!!!! We cannot have too many raffle prizes, so if you have anything you'd love to donate to the raffle portion of the Cookies for Kids Cancer Bake Sale leave a comment here! Also, if there's anything you'd like to see in the raffle let me know so I can hunt it down :)

So far I have a dance gift certificate from Dance Dimensions in Grand Terrace, 1/2 sheet of Jamberry Nails, 3 kids baskets filled with coloring goodies and more, there is a Trust the Bum basket on its way as well, and I'm working on a couple jewelry sets and hand painted glasses to put together.

Raffle tickets can be purchased online at http://cookiesforkidscancer.kintera.org/stephanieansell each dollar donated will get you a raffle ticket.Some prizes are worth more than others so each prize will cost a different number of tickets to enter. For prizes worth less than $10 you will need 1 ticket to enter, $11-$20 you will need 5 tickets to enter, $21-$30 you will need 10 tickets to enter. If you have any questions I will be glad to answer! Just leave a comment here or email me, Stephanie, at ansell4387@gmail.com.

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 ansell4387@gmail.com!
