We’re proud to be sponsoring Lutherwood’s annual Steps for Kids this summer on May 3rd. The walk is a 3-5 km walk through scenic North Waterloo, starting and ending at the Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre, for which participants are fundraising. We’ll be on-site at the event, grilling up wraps made from our ever-changing menu (TBA by the way) and handing them out to participants. To learn more about participation or donation to this wonderful event, please visit lutherwoodstepsforkids.ca.
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.
