Hi guys!! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you have probably been seeing me hype up an event I am participating in next weekend. It is called Cupcake Camp Conejo Valley hosted by Cupcakes for Cancer.
First let me give you a little background about Cupcakes for Cancer. This non-profit organization was started by Blakely Colvin at the young age of 13. Blakely is a chemotherapy survivor and now at the age of 18 is cancer free and continuing to donate thousands of dollars each year to numerous non-profit organizations around the country. Blakely started out selling cupcakes for $1 at local sporting events to raise money for a child in her town who was diagnosed with cancer. It was so successful that in the first six weekends, they raised $5,000. I encourage you to take a look at the Cupcake for Cancer website to find out more about Blakely, her mission, and how to host an event in your town.
This is the second year for the Cupcake Camp Conejo Valley, and my first time participating. I could not be more excited! This year the event is raising money for the Cancer Support Community of Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara.
When: Sunday, March 3rd 1-4 PM
Where: Westlake Village Inn, Westlake, CA
Entry fees $10-20, and I hear that it is suggested to arrive early to get in line!
The event promises to be packed full of cupcakes, milk, and lemonade. There will be 60 bakers participating, including professional, amateur, and youth bakers. Besides the cupcake tasting, there are contests for bakers to enter and plenty of activities for kids and adults. For further information, head over to the event website. Besides having an excuse to bake dozens of cupcakes, I am also so excited to meet local bakers, the contest judges, and be able to support such a great cause. Please come out for the cupcake tasting or share this event with your friends if you can’t attend! I mean, I am sure I don’t have to beg you, right? Now I just have to make my final decision on the flavors to exhibit!
