Bake Sale Success!

You baked, you came, and you donated!

Thanks to all of you and your generosity, we were able to raise $1447.00 for the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA)! You donated most generously (I think we could have added another table!) to take home some treats from the bake tables, and you also donated whenever you purchased a Sweets from the Earth baked good from our deli, or a karmavore raffle ticket at the cash. All of this added up to help the kitties!

We were overwhelmed with everyone's generosity whether you baked for the sale or donated when you arrived.

We'd like to thank all of those bakers out there who came in numbers for this event. Wow! What an amazing turnout!

A special thanks to Sprout Vegan Bakery for bringing the delicious mini cheesecakes and for donating your time to help out at the bake sale table.

Thank you to Artisan Bake Shoppe for donating the delicious Chocolate Cake, and the Vegan Banana Pecan Cookies (that we've since decided to carry in the store as well!)

We'd also like to thank all of those that provided us with some great raffle prizes:
Bikram's Yoga New Westminster
Four Fauna
Carla Kelly
Live for Tomorrow
Pedagogy Toys
and Saeco BC

Thank you to Janna Hurtzig of Astrosatchel for having a trunk sale with us on the upper level during the bake sale. Janna brought a fabulous selection of her totes, wallets, and even silk-screened pillows for people to choose from.

What was your favorite cookie, cupcake, or other treat from the bake sale?
