POINT PLEASANT — Local families worked together on Oct. 28 to offer their annual bake sale to help raise money for breast cancer research.
The third annual Cider/Baked Goods stands took place Saturday, Oct. 28, from 2 to 4 p.m. The volunteers who run the stands are all young girls, who had five stands around town.
This year, the girls chose to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Each year, the girls and families gather to discuss what charity or organization they want to raise money for, according to one of the parent volunteers, Lisa Collins.
In previous years, the volunteers had raised money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which is another breast cancer research organization and Northstar, a pet rescue and veterinary organization.
Ms. Collins said, “This is an easy way for the girls to do some fundraising. The girls help bake, set up the stands, make posters and decorate the stands.”
“On the day we made the donation, the organization was tripling donations, and we raised $700. Therefore, $2,100 was donated to the foundation thanks to our bake sale,” said Ms. Collins.
