We’re proud to be participating again this year in Lutherwood’s Steps for Kids, a fundraiser for children’s mental health. It’s a walk/run where teams take pledges benefiting the Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre. The event takes place on May 1st of this year. We’ll be bringing some grilled veggie wraps and chicken caesar wraps to feed participants and volunteers. For more information or to support the cause, please visit the event page here – http://www.lutherwoodstepsforkids.ca/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1153800
We are proud to be participating in this year’s first ever Artilicious. We don’t know too much about the event, but it’s taking shape as sort of a food-meets-craft show featuring local food vendors and artisans. We’ll be manning a booth knocking out some bite-size versions of our brown butter squash sandwich. The event is at the Marketplace in the Kitchener Market, our home turf, and takes place on March 10th, world kidney day, which is no coincidence as ticket sales are in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Check out the event page here.
We’re baking cakes and donating half of the proceeds to House of Friendship Kitchener, our neighbours on Charles Street. We’re taking pre-orders at our stand, or by e-mail. You choose your type of cake – spiced apple, carrot raisin, or chocolate chip - and your pick-up date, and we’ll bake cakes for you at $8 tax incl. each, $4 of which goes to HOF. We’re thinking of it as sort of a pre-ordered holiday bake sale. We’l be selling cakes this way into February so that we can donate then, so think of this option into the new year as well if you’re interested!
Thanks to your generous donations, we raised $250 for Children’s Health Foundation in London, Ontario. We took part in a fundraising campaign called “Extra Life” where we marathon-played Vlambeer’s “Nuclear Throne” for a total of 24 hours (non-consecutive, we’re not that hardcore!) Many mutant lives were lost, many a golden weapon dropped, and many inter-dimensional police raids went horribly wrong. We’re still not bored of the game – a break is however definitely in order.
