I only hope that my baking approximately 400 cupcakes on Friday night will help get this sweet looking 17-year-old closer to her double lung transplant.
Friday after I recouped from the week I set out to bake cupcakes to deliver to the farmers market on Saturday for a fund-raiser. I told her family at the booth that I usually sell them for 50 cents but its a fund-raiser and they can do whatever they wanted.
Instead they put up a donation box and people bought one for the market or even a box and just made a donation. I didn’t get a total but they are sure they brought in several hundred dollars.
Thank you loyal customers for donating. I hear a few of you were concerned this booth stole my mini-cupcake idea until they heard I had donated them. Then they bought their usual dozen for a donation of twenty bucks. Makes me happy knowing a little batter and sugar could help out and allow others to help out as well.
The market is almost done for the year and although it has been a lot of work, it has been very rewarding and I’m gonna miss it and the people I see every week.
