Cookies for Kids Cancer

Saturday, September 30th – 11:00 AM-1:00 PM

Cookies for Kids Cancer - Buy delicious cookies and help raise money for research to develop new and improved treatments for pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. We have a special place in our hearts here at The Cupboard for this cause as former employees Nate Glossi and Jami Ryba have faced childhood cancer head on when their young son Samuele was diagnosed with cancer last year. Jami will be in the store on Saturday selling cookies and continuing to raise money and awareness for all of the other children faced with cancer at such a young age. We hope you will support this great cause and enjoy some delicious cookies too! For more information or to donate online, please visit Cookies for Kid's Cancer.
