With over 650 attendees, it’s safe to say that Bake for the Quake was the biggest bake sale in Vancouver’s history.
As a result, an endless line of hungry attendees, armed with reusable shopping bags and containers, came through the bake sale and bought up a storm. We want to sincerely thank everyone that waited patiently in line and remained in bright spirits. Had we anticipated the wild turnout, Joy and I would have definitely planned for a bigger venue.
I know, you want to know how much we raised for Doctors without Borders, but first…
I know we step on each other’s toes sometimes.
We’re often grumpy when we forget our umbrellas because the sun was shining when we left the house.
We get cranky at the traffic jams and curse at the empty bike lanes.
We sneer at each other’s fashion faux pas or choice of ramen house.
But Bake for the Quake has helped me see my city in a new light.
This is what we can accomplish within 2.5 hours when we work together and pour our hearts into a good cause.
Bake for the Quake raised: $7,136!
We exceeded our goal of $5000 by over $2000! Woohoo! How awesome is that?
Next time, it’ll be bigger and better. No, no more earthquakes, but we will still team up for another fantastic fundraiser for a different worthy cause.
I have little more to say than thank you thank you thank you to all of our supporters. Y’all kicked some seriously ass and should all beam with pride.
See all the action, captured by our official photographer Tomasz Wagner of Mananetwork.
