Update: Bake sale is on, despite snow. Warm up with homemade baked goods!
For Port Washington resident Erica Tiger, raising money to help fight Cystic Fibrosis is personal.
Her niece Leah and nephew William cope with this disease daily, enduring drugs, injections and nebulizer treatments as a matter of course. “They are in and out of the hospital constantly,” Tiger notes.
That’s why Tiger is organizing a bake sale at St. Stephen’s Church, on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 2-5 p.m., with all proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which supports research on this genetic disease and care for those with CF. According to the organization, 90 cents of every dollar goes to supports research, care and education.
For a $5 entry fee, you can taste samples at each of the dozens of tables of homemade baked goods. Baked goods exhibited and also cookbooks will be available for sale.
Right now Tiger is reaching out to volunteer bakers, and those who want to assist with the sale or donate to help her reach her fundraising goal of $3,000. She’s asking anyone who wants to help – she also seeks those who want to contribute goods and services – to email her at email@example.com.
It’s her way, Tiger says, to “add tomorrows” to those fighting CF.
