Spring is Here! Big News for May!

Filed under: community fundraising ideas — Tags: — The Good Cookies @ 10:08 pm March 20, 2017


Happy first day of spring! We have fun and exciting news to share about “getting on board” this May.

1. WE HAVE A MATCH! Every dollar raised during the month of May will be matched, up to $100,000, thanks to a generous gift from The Smith Family Foundation.

2. NEED IDEAS? Host a bake sale, a school fundraiser or a dress down day at work. You can also encourage people to get active for Cookies by organizing a fun run or a mini-golf tournament.

3. UNIQUE EVENT! Liam Witt, the son of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer founders Gretchen and Larry Witt, would have had his “Golden Birthday” this year: turning 13 on May 13th. This day just happens to be World Cocktail Day. We’re celebrating with a toast to honor Liam and kids everywhere who are battling cancer. Since the best place to make a toast is gathered with friends in a bar, ask your favorite bar or restaurant to pick a day in May to give a portion of sales back to Cookies. If you’re interested in learning more, we can help with tips and ideas for getting your favorite local spot on board. We have gifts for bartenders who join you. Imagine a few dozen bars or restaurants around the country giving back this May with every dollar doubled for childhood cancer research?

Be a Good Cookie and get on board this May to make a difference for childhood cancer research!
