I am so excited to talk to everyone about the Let's Eat Cake Fundraiser benefiting St. Jude Children's research hospital. St. Jude is such an amazing organization here are a few interesting facts :
~St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in 1962 by the late entertainer Danny Thomas.
~In 1962, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, was 4 percent. Today, the survival rate for this once deadly disease is 94 percent, thanks to research and treatment protocols developed at St. Jude.
~St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases
~All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay.
~Eighty-five cents of every dollar received supports the research and treatment at St. Jude.
How AMAZING! The first time I went to St. Jude's website I felt compelled to find a way that I could help. Although I am in college and cannot make large donations, I have supported many different fundraisers and campaigns that raise money for St. Jude. The Let's Eat Cake fundraiser is definitely the most creative one I have seen yet!
Let's Eat Cake is is a wedding cake competition, put on by Masterpiece Weddings, featuring Wedding Cake confections from all over the United States. Bakers will feature their cakes to be judged by Local and National Culinary Celebrities. In addition bakers will be asked to make enough cake to feed the general public, so that they may judge the cakes as well! The goal for Let's Eat Cake is to raise $50,000 - 100% of which will go directly to St. Jude! You can find out more information at www.letseatcakefundraiser.com.
