“My favorite memories of the bake sales are really just how amazing it is that every year the community pulls together to help us out with this awesome event.  I never have to worry about having enough bakers or enough people and kids to pull the wagons every year.  Everyone just shows up. They all want to be a part of something that is so meaningful and worthwhile. It’s really become a community wide event and people around here know and love to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Every year we have people who come to the event and remember us year to year…this year will be out 8th year raising money at the local tournament in town and we plan to continue it for as long as the tournament is around.

It’s because of Cookies that I have an opportunity to do something that makes us feel so fulfilled. Once, my sister was tirelessly walking the lacrosse fields in the heat holding a picture of Gretchen and Liam asking for donations in exchange for baked goods… and Gretchen shows up at the event! My whole family has really gotten behind us in our support of CFKC. Not just my kids, but my sister and her family, my Parents, my cousin, my Aunt.  They show up every year without fail! It’s a long exhausting weekend in the sun and heat but no one backs away.”
