Share Our Strength Great American Bake Sale, Results

We held our Bake Sale on May 31st in partner with Share Our Strength Great American Bake Sale, with all proceeds going to Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry to do our part to end Childhood Hunger. With many corporate supporters both large and small it was a great success! We raised hundreds of dollars, community awareness and managed to inspire a few others to start up their own fundraisers...we could not have asked for more! Here are a few pics of our event, enjoy!
Here I am in the middle playing "let's make a deal" on another sale, lol. With so many yummy treats to choose from and o-so-many great raffle prizes we made every sale count.
With much support for the school and staff ,I held a cookie decorating party at my son's elementary school. Where I had each student of McWhorter Elementary School in Dallas Texas (all 650 of them!) decorate a cookie to be sold at the Bake Sale. They did such a great job, and they all turned out beautiful! Here are a few all packaged up.

The Dallas Firemen came with their big read truck to show their support, giving all the kids a tour of their fire engine and buying their fair share of treat and raffle tickets as well! The firemen really cleaned up winning raffle prizes from Starbucks, The Dallas Burn Soccer Team, Frisco Rough Riders Baseball Team and Fun Expressions (thank you fellow Mom Packer for your wonderful donation!)!

When i started this fundraiser i never imagined how involved i would become. I have really put myself into this organization and plan on hosting another Bake Sale either in the Fall or Spring. Our second Bake Sale will be much bigger and better as i have plans to make it a Bake Sale and Carnival in one, how fun!
