The 6th Annual Cupcakes for a Cause™ Week will take place September 21–27, 2009 during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Renowned bakeries, gourmet grocery stores, and individuals across the country will bake and sell specially decorated cupcakes to benefit CancerCare for Kids.
See our Media Alert (PDF).
Cupcakes for a Cause began in 2004 when CancerCare enlisted a small group of New York City bakeries to bake and sell special cupcakes to support the program. It has since become a week-long event, with over 200 bakeries nationwide participating in 2008.
2008 also marked the first National Bake Sale Contest sponsored by Duncan Hines. Participants from across the country hosted their own bake sales to raise funds for CancerCare for Kids and compete for cool prizes.
The 2008 Cupcakes for a Cause campaign raised nearly $120,000 for CancerCare for Kids.
Members of the media are encouraged to contact Christina Wyman at (212) 712-8325 or for more information about CancerCare, Cupcakes for a Cause, or to arrange interviews with CancerCare staff, our spokesbakeries or a CancerCare for Kids client family.
CancerCare for Kids
CancerCare for Kids is a very distinct program that focuses on a child coping with a cancer diagnosis, either a close loved one or their own. We know from our clinical experience and research that help for children coping with cancer makes a big difference. CancerCare's professionally trained social workers offer counseling, other social services and recreational programs to children and their parents to help them manage this difficult situation and to feel less alone.
