The Community Health Committee has kicked off the school year with our first event – a bake sale to raise funds for pediatric cancer.
Through sales from contributions of our members, and generous donations from some customers, $171.15 was raised for our cause! Thank you to all who donated and purchased.
Three possible charities and non-profit organizations were featured during our sale. Information was provided about each group and customers voted on the organization they’d like to see proceeds donated to:
- Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatric Department (http://www.mskcc.org/pediatrics)
- Alex’s Lemonade Stand (www.alexlemonade.org)
- Solving Kids’ Cancer (www.solvingkidscancer.org)
Alex’s Lemonade Stand received the most votes and will be receiving the proceeds. Thanks again to all who participated!
