We are making great progress with the Team Logan Bake Sale and wanted to provide an update. Our event is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th and will take place from noon to 8pm EST at Christmas Park on Canal Street in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
I am excited to let you know that we have received approval from Guinness Book of World Records to proceed with our attempt to break the current world record of "Most Baked Goods Sold at a Community Bake Sale."
The current record holder is Sandra Lee of Semi-Homemade. This Food Network Star sold 9,654 baked goods and raised $25,578 for the Food Bank of New York. Our goal is to sell 10,000 baked goods in 8 hours and raise $26,0000 (or more) for Cookies for Kids' Cancer; a non-profit organization that raises money for pediatric cancer research.
Team Logan Bake Sale is a celebration to honor 6-year old Logan Wight, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor known as AT/RT in 2010. Logan had a love for chocolate cake and the movie, "Cars" so it only made sense to partner with the East Coast Cruisers Car Club to share Logan's passion for cool cars.
East Coast Cruisers puts on a monthly Classic Car Show in New Smyrna Beach the second Saturday of every month. They have graciously offered to expand their usual 4-hour event into an 8-hour show to support the bake sale while we attempt to break the world record.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
We are currently seeking help from the New Smyrna Beach community to help us prepare and sell baked goods. We also need a few more corporate sponsors to help offset the costs associated with putting on an event of this size. Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, so all donations are tax deductible.
If you'd like to join our team as a volunteer or corporate sponsor, contact me by via email at info [at] thecheapgourmet.com or subscribe to our Facebook fan page at www.Facebook.com/TeamLoganBakeSale.
