Cookies for a Cure

Posted in events, food by krisyee on April 14, 2011

My friend Jessica Gee created C.U.M.F.O.R.T.S. (Contributing Unconditional Means For Research, Treatment, and Support) blanket when she joined Team in Training of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. With C.U.M.F.O.R.T.S. blanket, Jessica does not only fundraise to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society but she also helps a person in need. With every monetary gift that someone contributes, Jessica hand crochets a 6″x6″ square. When a certain amount gets donated, each square is put together and turned into a blanket for someone that is battling leukemia. Each blanket represents $1,000 towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This Saturday my good friend Regina is teaming up with Jessica to host a bake sale. Regina is a foodie and loves to bake so she is donating her time and delicious delights to help raise money for C.U.M.F.O.R.T.S. blanket. Both Jessica and Regina will be at Dolores Park in San Francisco this Saturday from 12pm-4pm. All items will be $1 and ALL PROCEEDS will be donated. So if you’re free, come out to enjoy a day in the park with delicious treats and help contribute for a good cause!

And P.S- Regina bakes really yummy treats!
