BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
As of March 28, 2014 GracieCakes For Cancer has raised $2221 for St Jude Children's Research Hospital!!! :) Here is the backstory...
In September 2012, my then 5 year old daughter, Grace, decided that she wanted to sell cupcakes to raise money for kids battling cancer. She had originally wanted to sell lemonade but after watching the show DC Cupcakes she thought cupcakes would be more fun. So, within days GracieCakes For Cancer was created. My niece setup a Facebook group, I setup an online fundraiser & a cupcake sale was set for September 27, 2012 with all donations benefiting St Jude Children's Research Hospital. We took cupcake orders from family & friends & made local deliveries. People who didn't want cupcakes chose to donate online. At the actual cupcake sale, which was held at a local soccer game, Grace sold $352 worth of cupcakes in 1.5 hours...in the rain! The fundraising period ended on Grace's 6th birthday (Oct 7, 2012). In roughly 2 weeks, Grace raised $1060! Her original goal was $100. On October 15, 2013, the 2nd Annual GracieCakes For Cancer fundraiser was held at the Cumberland Valley Varsity Boys Soccer game. Grace raised $1161 from pre-orders & the cupcake stand! Without the help of family, friends and generous strangers, GracieCakes For Cancer would not be successful. Grace has an AMAZING heart (yes, I'm partial) and we are so proud of her! She wants to continue to raise money for St Jude & she hopes to make a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer. Thank you for your support!
