Last summer I planned a trip to see friends in Italy in November, friends I had not seen in countless years; it too has come and gone too quickly. I am left with beautiful memories and dreams of returning sooner than later!
It has been an incredible year for Bakes for Breast Cancer, Boston Bake for Breast Cancer and our Bakes for Breast Cancer Bake Sale. Boston Bakes has raised almost $78,000.00 this year! Our bake sale in which the nonprofessional baker can make a difference anytime of the year is new and has incredible potential to do so much!
There is so much more we want to do and with your continued help we will be able to do so much more in the fight against breast cancer that touches so many we know and love! With more participants in our Boston Bakes event, with more bake sales, with more donations everything is possible. With the support of sponsors which we are looking for, even more can be done by our organization! We have big dreams and goals and with your help and the help of those you know it is possible.
2013 will be a good year for Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc. and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute with your help!
Who knows where 2013 will bring us but what I do know is that it will be a another year we raise money for breast cancer research so one day a cure will be available and our work will be done. It will be another year we meet new and interesting people in this journey we so long ago began. It will be another year we work hard to make a difference.
A special thanks to all of those who made our success a reality from our participants, our volunteers, interns, supporters and countless others who give so much of themselves so we can make a difference! We are grateful to each and every one who has helped us!
I ask for your continued support in 2013! Get involved! Participate in Boston Bakes 2013 which is scheduled for May 6-12th! Host a Bakes for Breast Cancer Bake Sale! Donate! Volunteer! Become a Sponsor so we can do so much more! Share your story with us! Follow us on Facebook, @Boston-Bakes on Twitter and follow us on Pinterest! Read our blogs!
Thank you for making 2012 a wonderful year for us.
At this time I also want to say our thoughts and prayers go out to those in Newtown, Connecticut and the Sandy Hook Elementary School community. I cannot imagine what you are going through. You are in our thoughts and I am sure the thoughts of everyone in this country. Our hearts are broken with what you have seen and what you have lost. Your children and the adults whose lives were taken so early are in our hearts and souls.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
