From day one of Cookies for Kids' Cancer, the Charlotte community has
been a national leader in support of fundraising for childhood cancer
research. And this year, the Queen City came together in new, amazing
ways. It was one campaign for one cause with many ways to give that
resulted in more donations than ever before from this place we call
home. What was the total? Hold on tight. First, let's reflect on the
ways we exceeded our goals.
- You came out for the inaugural Pint Challenge in October thanks to the support of seven local breweries!
- You and 500 Charlotteans supported the cookies-and-cocktails palooza known as Chefs for Kids' Cancer - Queen City on Tuesday, November 10th.
- You hosted small events and inspired businesses - from Chick-fil-A
in Huntersville to Park Road Shopping Center - to Be a Good Cookie and
give to the campaign.
- You baked, organized and GAVE to the 8th Annual Charlotte Bake Sale, found all around the city during first weekend in December.
Together, these events - made possible by YOU - exceeded expectations and raised nearly $380,000 for research into new, improved, and less toxic therapies for children battling cancer
No doubt, YOU created a whole new season of giving for Charlotte. Want
