BAKE FOR HOPE - baking for a cure for breast cancer

Now I know that I am focused on making healthy meals for your family, but that doesn't meak you should completely deny the sweet tooth, especially when it's for a good cause!

Sitting at work last week I got an e-mail about Bake for Hope, an event in the office park I work in. This wasn’t your average bake sale though. This bake sale supports the Susan G. Koman foundation’s fight against breast cancer.
Bake for Hope is a grass-roots nationwide event run by volunteers that host bake sales in local communities across the country supporting the cure for breast cancer. The bake sale runs annually the week before Mother’s Day.

This year, I am one of those volunteers. I am organizing the Bake for Hope event in my office building. For two days, my co-workers and I will be baking and selling goodies to raise money and awareness to find a cure for breast cancer. I work with some incredible bakers and women who are always ready to help others. A huge thanks to them for being willing to bake.
I am excited to be a part of the event. Obviously I love cooking and baking so this is a natural fit. I have met some pretty incredible fighters and survivors of cancer. It may seem small, but every little bit helps find a cure. I’m doing my part to support those brave women who battle this horrible illness every single day.

A second cousin of mine isn’t even 30 years old and is fighting breast cancer. She is an amazing picture of strength and determination. She is amazing! These cookies are for you, Monica! =)

Are you baking for hope this year? Do you have co-workers that like to bake?
