I can’t leave this post with our saying how proud we are of our history…here’s a quick look at how many Central Ohio Families we’ve been able to feed the past four years. It’s really amazing what one night of cake, cocktails and tasty food can do for hungry families in Central Ohio!
In 2010, Cakes for a Cause easily exceed our original goal of raising 4380 meals or $2190! We more than doubled it and raised 9600 meals in one night and were awarded 2010’s Outstanding New Campaign from Operation Feed!
In 2011, we raised $8753 – 17,500 meals or enough to feed 16 people every meal for an entire year. Once again, with your help we blew our goal of 10,000 meals out of the water!
In 2012, we raised enough to feed 24 people every meal for an entire year – that’s over 26,000 meals!
In 2013, we raised over 27,000 meals for those in need in Central Ohio!
With your help, we can feed even more people in need through Cakes for a Cause 2014 – how many people will we help this year?
