The sweetest month of the year is back in support of animals being cared for at the Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo & Stratford Perth.
‘Bake for the Animals’ runs the entire month of February and is one of the organization's signature fundraisers.
Participants are asked to register and set up their online bakery page. They then ask family and friends to support their baking efforts in exchange for some sweet treats. HSKWSP is also encouraging groups, schools and businesses to get involved.
“We have so much fun watching our supporters whip up cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other sweet treats in support of our animals,” stated Kathrin Delutis, chief executive officer, HSKWSP. “Being one of our signature fundraising events, Bake for the Animals plays a crucial role in supporting the large number of animals we help each year.”
For those more interested in eating versus baking, there's a ‘Pastry Path’, where participating bakeries and eateries will serve up something sweet. By completing a stamp card, you will also have a chance to win a Cuisinart Stand Mixer valued at $400. A 50/50 draw is part of the fundraiser as well.
