Save the Date: Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Milwaukee

This year, stuffing your stockings with homemade treats could mean a breakthrough in pediatric cancer research.

Haute Apple Pie is happy to participate again in the MKEfoodies sponsored holiday bake sale to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. You can purchase HAP goodies along with many other local foodie treats on Saturday, December 8, 2011 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, 901 W. Juneau Ave., Milwaukee.

Santa Claus is coming to town to greet kids of all ages and bestow gifts upon lucky supporters. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a not-for-profit organization committed to raising funds to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancers.

We’ve got help from lots of great companies this year. OXO has pledged to match bake sale proceeds dollar for dollar! In addition, the Glad Corporation will give $1 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for every cookie sold here in Milwaukee. Local sponsors include 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, OnMilwaukee.com, Yelp Milwaukee, Outpost Natural Foods, First Priority Printing, and Rishi Tea.

Childhood cancers are the number one disease killer of children – more than asthma, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis and pediatric AIDS combined. Nearly 13,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Survivors of childhood cancer face a broad range of physical and psychological challenges imposed by the disease, and some will suffer its long-term effects for the rest of their lives. Despite all these statistics, there has not been a new drug developed specifically for pediatric cancer in 20 years. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is committed to raising the funds to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancer. It is not about one child or one type of pediatric cancer. It is about changing the facts of pediatric cancer for the better, forever.

Cookies for a Cause!

At HAP, we do a lot of baking in general but this week we’ll be putting some extra love and care into our cookies.  This Saturday we’ll be donating Katie’s Almond M&M Cookies, Stef’s Lemon Ginger Tea Snowballs and Anne’s Oatmeal Carmelita bars (recipe coming soon!) to the Milwaukee Cookies for Kids’ Cancer bake sale. Since all of us have been touched by a friend or loved one with cancer, we can’t think of a better reason for baking or a better cause to be involved with.

The event will feature tons of goodies made by local food bloggers, bakers, and celebrity chefs, plus a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses. All proceeds go to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit organization committed to raising funds to support research for new and improved therapies for pediatric cancers.
