Boston Bakes is more important than ever in 2013!

Boston_Bakes_logoThe participants have signed up! The desserts are getting ready to be made! Soon we will be waiting for you to visit one of our over 300 participants or for you to shop on line and help us raise money for breast cancer one sweet at a time!  The day we are waiting for you to help us is around the corner!  The time for you to help is sooner than later!  In fact Boston Bakes will start May 3 at specific Stop and Shop locations and all other locations May 6!

The money you help us raise will benefit breast cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc. a nonprofit breast cancer organization.

This year Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer is more important than ever! This is why:

Last Saturday I attended a seminar from our friends at Dana-Farber and learned that federal funding for research is at the lowest it has been.  Talented researchers might not have the opportunity to do the important research needed in the fight against cancer.  We might be losing talent researches which is inexcusable in a country like ours and in the state in which we live.

Therefore, it is up to all of us to make a difference and help raise money so researchers can do the work they love with the hopes of making that next important discovery in the very complex world of cancer.

Events like Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer are more important than ever! Now we need your help to turn the work already done into the most successful event ever! Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer is an event designed to fit into your very busy life!  All you have to do is visit one of our participating establishments and save room for dessert! Eating desserts has never tasted better!

This is what we need you to do!

Order the Boston Bakes dessert or desserts and 100% of one dessert or 50% of some participant’s entire dessert menu will be donated to be used in the fight against breast cancer.

We have over 300 participants in over 100 Massachusetts communities!  We have supermarkets! Specific Stop and Shop locations will be participating May 3-10. Whole Foods Market, Roche Brothers and Sudbury Farms locations in Massachusetts are participating May 6-12! But you might find some chocolate chip cookies in Roche Brothers and Sudbury Farms before, check their circular for details!
