Bake Sales Raise Money for Pediatric Cancer Research

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit working to encourage people to hold bake sales to raise money for pediatric cancer research, declared September 14th as National Bake Sale Day. In honor of this declaration an inspired group of mothers and kids got together to host bake sales at three Scotts Valley, Ca local schools.

With cookies donated by Pacific Cookie Company the bake sales were a huge success. All together Vine Hill Elementary, Baymonte Christian and Scotts Valley High School raised $1892 for Cookies for Kids’ cancer!!

Together we can help make a difference.

Cookies, Kids, & the Pearson Family Photo Shoot

In recognition of pediatric cancer awareness month a few Vine Hill Elementary school moms collaborated with Cookies for Kids Cancer to hold a community bake sale. Michelle Riddle contacted Pacific Cookie Company to see if we would be willing the donate cookies for the event. It was so successful that the 250 cookies we donated were sold in the first 30 minutes and left a lot of hungry kids with two dollars in hand pretty disappointed. So disappointed in fact that Michelle and her friends decided to hold another bake sale the following week. The bake sale raised over $1200 for Cookies for Kids Cancer, a small non-profit that encourages people to hold bake sales to raise money to help fund pediatric cancer research. www.cookiesforkidscancer.org.

Michelle, a skilled photographer, was so appreciative of the donation of cookies she offered to do a photo shoot for the Pearson family. With three little ones all under the age of 4 years, Nana Shelly (owner of PCC) had always wanted to get a good photo of them together. One late afternoon in November her dream came true and here are some of the amazing photos that Michelle took.
