Thank You For Making Baking For Kate a Huge Success!

The first Baking For Kate Online Bake Sale was a fabulous success!! :)  A total of $870 was raised through the bake sale alone and sent to Kate's Paypal account set up just for helping fund her Mommy Bucket List!  It was just shy of the $1000 goal I had hoped the bake sale would meet by the end of the weekend.  

I want to give a HUGE thank you to all of you who made it to the bake sale and bid on all the goodies! :)
And I also want to thank all of the lovely and giving bloggers who donated signed cookbooks, kitchen goodies, baked yummies, & baking inspired items for the bake sale...

If you haven't done so already, go check out these lovely bloggers and give them a follow on one of their social media outlets to say thank you! :)

The Baking For Kate Online Bake Sale was such a wonderful success that it is my hope to hold another one of these in the fall.  
I am also considering holding a Handmade Online Rummage Sale near the beginning of December to also benefit Kate's Mommy Bucket List.  I have had several small shop owners who make handmade goodies (not necessarily baking or cooking inspired) contact me about wanting to get involved.  The Rummage Sale would be a way to bring in those of you with non-food talents into the fundraising fold and would help bidders get a jump start on their holiday gift shopping while also helping a good cause. :)
If you are interested in donating an item(s) for either the bake sale or rummage sale (or both!), please be sure to fill out the Donation Interest Form
**Please note, I will be limiting bake sale/rummage sale items to 25 for each event to keep the events manageable.  I will try to include everyone who would like to donate, but completing the form is not a guarantee that your donation will be accepted.  
If you were unable to participate in the bake sale (or were outbid on your favorites), you can still help Kate and her family! 
You can make a direct monetary donation to Kate and her family via Paypal (please send as a gift to Friends/Family) to 

Or via check or money order to:
The Crawford Family Benefit Fund
First National Bank
4627 Rt 51 Suite 601
Belle Vernon PA 15012

My friend Lisa from Hummingbird's View is selling her Feed Them With Love print for $5 as a digital download.  100% of the proceeds from the sale of this will go to Kate's Mommy Bucket List fund.

Again thanks so much to each and every one of you who made Baking For Kate possible! :)
