Bake sale photos


Thank you so much to everyone who helped support our Hurricane Sandy bake sale. Here are a few photos...

From top: Two of the great kids working at the bake sale; Anna, Samantha and me; a sweet girl; a rad Babar backpack; The Cutest Baby in Baby History; a little pup, and the hungry crowd.

And the bake-sale kids taking a well-deserved pizza break.

We had a great afternoon, surrounded by Nutella fudge, salted chocolate chip cookies and marshmallow brownies still warm from the oven. In the end, the bake sale raised $2400, which was generously matched by DwellStudio, for a grand total of $4800 to go toward hurricane relief efforts. Hurray! Thanks again for all your help. xoxo

(Top photo of two cute Cup of Jo readers—Caroline and Clare—who stopped by for treats. Thanks again!)

I inhaled the chocolate fudge before I was even a block away!
Was going to stop and say "hi", but you were chatting with some others so I flashed a "seeing teacher outside of school" type smile instead. :)

Lauren Knight said...

Wow! That is a great fundraiser! It looks like you had so much fun doing it. What a wonderful idea.

Marisa Chaples said...

Good on you, and the kids, for doing this. I'm from New Jersey and we were very lucky after the storm but many friends weren't. It's been amazing to see the community come together to help each other out.

Chloe Strickland said...

Oh wow what a great effort - looks like a brilliant day and those still-warm-from-the-oven marshmallow brownies sound amazing! :)

Super well done!!!

It's a shame really that I live on the other end of the world, because I a) love such initiatives, b) love baking and c) love this blog and the lovely lady behind it so it would have been the ideal chance to contribute...

Maybe another time if I master teleportation ;)
