I started my fundraising in memory of my mother who lost her battle against breast cancer at the age of 44 in 1973. She is always with me. My dessert-oriented events were created because of her and with her in mind! My love of baking and cooking is because of my mother.
It is ever so rewarding that we kick of the first annual Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer on Mother’s Day! Rhode Island Bakes as we call it has over 25 restaurants, bakeries, online bakeries and supermarkets designating a dessert and donating a hundred percent of the sales from this one select dessert to benefit breast cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the nonprofit breast cancer organization Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc.
We call this raising money for breast cancer one sweet at a time where anyone can make a difference by simply buying a dessert. Visit a participating location or shop on line and have desserts shipped to you! The desserts you can ship make great gifts for yourself or a special gift! There has never been an easier way to raise money for breast cancer, which touches so many women and men we know and love.
Get involved! Enjoy desserts for Rhode Island Bakes! We know we will be! For a complete list of participants please visit our website, follow Bakes for Breast Cancer on Facebook and @Bakes4bc on Twitter!
