National Cupcake Day 2018: Bake a Difference!
Cupcake Crusaders are “Baking a Difference”!
National Cupcake Day is on Monday, February 26 and you’re invited to FUNraise by hosting a Cupcake Party any time during the month of February!
Proudly sponsored locally by Royal LePage Trinity Realty!
Each year hundreds of homeless and helpless animals are brought to the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS). Last year alone, almost 1300 cats and dogs entered our shelter: abandoned, abused and neglected. You can help save these lives by raising funds for National Cupcake Day.
What is National Cupcake Day™?
National Cupcake Day is a sweet fundraising event presented in partnership by the Ontario SPCA and the BC SPCA in support of local SPCAs and Humane Societies across the country. The campaign has raised $2.45 million to date, with $600,000 raised last year by animal lovers across Canada.
“The sweetest day of the year is almost here and we need you to put on those oven mitts and start that timer to help us change the lives of animals that have endured hardship and cruelty,” says National Cupcake Day Champion Mary Berg, winner of MasterChef Canada and host of Mary’s Big Kitchen Party on Bell Fibe TV, channel 1.
At GTHS, Pam Odam leads the charge as Chair of National Cupcake Day.
“So, what do you do on a blustery, cold day in the winter? Why bake, of course – especially when it’s in support of a cause so very near and dear to me. And that’s why I’m once again chairing Cupcake Day for the GTHS,” exclaims Pam! “This is one of those events where there’s something for everyone and a great opportunity to engage the entire community. I’m proud to be amongst such a dedicated group of committee members who are aiming to make this, the Best Year Ever!!”
