You’ve virtually seen our treats for almost three years. Now it is time to taste them first hand at the very first Haute Apple Pie bake sale! On Wednesday, August 22nd, come to the Hartung Park Farmer’s Market in Wauwatosa (at the corner of the Menomonee River Parkway and Keefe) to purchase some delicious HAP goodies for a good cause.
Six months ago, I’d never heard the word Neurofibromatosis. It has now become a regular word in our families vocabulary as our sweet four year old niece Izzy was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) this spring. NF2 is a very rare disease, affecting less than 4,000 (only 400 children) in the U.S. It a genetic defect that stops cell growth in the nerve cells, which later develop into multiple, benign tumors throughout the body, called schwanommas. Almost 100% percent of patients with NF2 become deaf and may also experience issues with vision and blindness as well as facial and limb paralysis.
On September 15, Team IZ will be walking in the Children’s Tumor Foundation NF Walk at Havenwoods State Forest. It is a two mile walk to raise funds and awareness of NF1, NF2 and schwanommatosis. Family and friends are pulling together to help raise the greatly needed funds for this devastating disease. This is where you come in! The ladies and I will be selling some treats at the Farmer’s Market, with all of the proceeds going to the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
So if you are looking for some muffins, cookies and other baked treats or to help a cause so very near and dear to our hearts, please come down. You can also peruse the fresh produce from some local farmers and if you are lucky, get some delicious grub from the Asian food truck that usually parks nearby!
