oh my gosh, I'm so excited!

They say write about what you know.  I think this philosophy applies to charitable contributions as well.  So when I found out that Aunt Rita’s Foundation was hosting a bake sale to raise money for AIDS awareness, I sprang into action ….. in the kitchen.

Last night I baked 75 cupcakes and had a blast doing it. Chocolate & Peppermint, Red Velvet & Cream Cheese, Chocolate Espresso & Maraschino Cherry, Vanilla Funfetti & Amaretto were my contributions. No need to tell you I am “whipped” today, but when I saw the happy face of the volunteer who picked up my little goodies, it made it all worth it.

If you are in Phoenix, you can help by attending the bake/sale happy hour and other events this weekend at Kobalt Bar at Park Central Shopping Center.  Hosted by SWAY Events, this fundraiser will support Aunt Rita’s mission to raise and equally distribute money to Central Arizona programs that prevent HIV/AIDS or assist those living with HIV/AIDS.

“The Bake Sale and Brunch will feature live entertainment, a Saturday brunch, loads of baked goods, contests and more. Baked goods will be featured for sale on Friday and Saturday and the proceeds will go to help Aunt Rita’s fund programs and services at 19 leading HIV agencies in metropolitan Phoenix; a full list of participating agencies can be found online at auntritasfoundation.org

Claire Burke Gift Bags

Claire Burke also donated 3 gift bags valued at $60 each in our yummiest edible fragrances, CherryO!, Applejack & Peel, and Vanilla Bean which will be raffled off tonight and tomorrow during the festivities.

Get your butt down there and stuff your face for a good cause!

love & frosting
