Can you believe it? Bakes for Breast Cancer Rhode Island starts tomorrow!
From delightful strawberry semifreddo at Mill’s Tavern to enchanting chocolate espresso mousse at Hemenway’s, October 7 – 13 brings out the dessert connoisseur in everyone. Fundraising for breast cancer research just got sweeter!
By purchasing a dessert from a participating establishment, you are eating for a cause. Indulge in the sweet and savory goodness of treats, while simultaneously making a difference in the world around you. Bon appétit!
Alongside Dr. Rachel Freeman, we are fighting for a better today, tomorrow, and the next generation. Over the past 23 years, Bakes for Breast Cancer has funded 20 researchers and received over 4,350 donations; there is still more to be done.
When asked why he participates, Jeffrey Collins from South County Bread Company emphasizes that “it’s a great cause. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, in one way or another. I do personally. I hold that pain close to me every day…What a great way to make a difference, but to do it together.” According to the US Census Bureau, the US population aged 65+ years is expected to nearly double over the next 30 years, from 43.1 million in 2012 to an estimated 83.7 million in 2050.
You can help fund new research and treatment for breast cancer by supporting our mission. We are all in this together, and your support is key in saving lives.
Bring a friend or family member to try a tasty dessert with you. We cannot wait to see all the desserts you endeavored in next week; tag us on Instagram at @bakes4bc to celebrate your kindness and generosity. Share a review and photo on @Beyondish for the desserts you love and for a cause you believe in. Beyondish posts only positive reviews and each review is one paragraph and one scrumptious picture. For each review Beyondish receives, they will make a donation to Bakes for Breast Cancer Rhode Island. We hope that we can count on you to make this year’s event one of our best yet!
Make your plans now; after all, it is for charity!
With sincere gratitude,
The Bakes for Breast Cancer Team
