It's time to get ready for Details' 2nd Annual Great American Bake Sale!
Join us on Saturday, July 17th from 9:30am to 5:00pm as we raise money to help end childhood hunger in America!
Here is a little background info... "Great American Bake Sale" is a country wide fundraising event created by the Share Our Strength organization and sponsored by Food Network, Domino Sugar and Family Circle Magazine. Share Our Strength is the leading national organization working to make sure no kid in America grows up hungry. The organization weaves together a net of community groups, activists, and food programs to catch children at risk of hunger and ensure they have nutritious food where they live, learn and play.
In the world's wealthiest nation, no child should grow up hungry!! Here are some stats I found frightning... Over the course of a year, more than 12 million children in America worry about when their next meal will come. That's one in six who are at risk of hunger and who have limited or uncertain access to the nutritious food they need to thrive. Our participation in the "Great American Bake Sale" is raising the critical funds needed to support after-school and summer feeding programs in our community and across the country.
My team needs your help!
I am looking for bakers to donate goodies for the sale, prizes for our raffle (ie: gift certificates, gift baskets, etc.) but most importantly, I'm asking for your attendance on July 17th!!!
Please contact me at Kitchen & Bath Details if you would like to donate (firstname.lastname@example.org or 508.758.6083)
