Over 25 groups of children nationwide took to the streets and fields on Saturday, May 16th for the Third Annual Pediatric Cancer Foundation GIVE HOPE BAKE event.
Cookies, cupcakes and muffins flying off PCF Bake Sale tables into the hands of compassionate customers for $20 apiece.
Event organizers, Noah (19), Zoe (18), Sophie (15) and Josh (14) Mittman of Purchase, NY, helped lead several groups in Harrison. The all children-led event surpassed their goal of raising $10,000. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to fund pediatric cancer state of the art equipment.
With first-hand experience watching her mother run many PCF events herself, Sophie, a sophomore at HHS commented “My siblings and I realize how fortunate we are. After hearing and seeing the plight of so many children with cancer we decided we could do something ourselves to give back.” Her younger brother Josh states, “We know our efforts are helping kids just like ourselves who are not in the position to help themselves. We are already planning the Fourth Annual GIVE HOPE BAKE to be bigger and better.” To make a donation, run your own bake sale or to get involved click here or call 914-777-3127.
