Cakes for Cause: Sugar Cookie Tourist Livin' the Good Life.

The sugar-cookie-tourist contest is really heating up! One of our cookie friends vacationed in Mexico last week and, from the looks of it, had the time of his life! Pictures show him lounging on the beach with a drink in hand, floating in the pool (in a protective Tupperware, of course!) and, finally, making friends with an iguana, who turned on him in the end! He had a good run in Cancun-- this one is going to be hard to top!

The Cakes for Cause stand was ready for action last Thursday at the Middletown Farmer’s Market. Unfortunately, we were not overrun by stampeding hordes of addicted Cakes customers! We need all you die-hard fans to come out and show your support!! We’d hate for you to go into a sugar coma, though, so use those networking skills and forward this email or tell your coworkers/friends/family/anyone you see…. to get their butts to Middletown!! Our program director has become very attached to this market and can’t bear to give it up, so help her make it worth it! The Middletown Farmer’s Market is located in Middletown on 12 S. Church Street (Rt. 17 South, off of Alt. 40) from 3:00 - 6:00 pm.

The Cakes for Cause Farmer’s Market booths are staffed by volunteers. If you are interested in helping out and getting involved in the community, we would love to have you! It is a great way to meet new people and spread the word about Cakes for Cause (each pastry bought helps youth who have aged out of foster care gain real job skills). You can sign up to help at our volunteer calendar.

On Saturday July 4th we will donate 5% of our proceeds to CALM, The Frederick Community Mediation and Conflict Resolution Center. CALM is a non-profit community service organization that provides affordable and accessible conflict resolution services to Frederick residents. CALM encourages peaceful resolution of conflicts through the use of mediation. They offer mediation in the following areas: business, community, and all family issues including parent/teen, divorce, eldercare, and school. CALM also offers facilitation, community conferencing, trainings, and presentations. So we want to encourage you to come out and support not only the Cakes for Cause, but CALM as well. Remember: THERE ARE NO CALORIES WHEN IT COMES TO CHARITY!! For more information about CALM, you can visit their website.
