Help Fund Pediatric Cancer Research With Massive Cookie Sale

A group of current and former Richmond parents, including one with a child fighting cancer, have combined forces to host a Richmond area bake sale on Saturday, September 11 with 100% of the proceeds earmarked for pediatric cancer research. Corporate sponsors including an industrial bakery in Massachusetts has agreed to donate 10,000 cookies for baking, the Mixing Bowl has donated their commercial kitchen for the day, and Winn Transportation has donated the use of its trolleys for cookie selling stations in downtown Richmond. Gladware, another sponsor of the event, has even agreed to match every dollar made. Volunteers are needed on September 11 to bake and sell cookies in the Carytown area and in other areas. Students will receive Community Service hours for this effort. For more information contact Caitlin Lane, a junior at Maggie Walker, at caitlinlane@verizon.net.
