Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Cup­cakes and an­i­mals seem to be an un­likely com­bi­na­tion, but when it comes to a fundrais­ing idea for the SPCA, it couldn’t be a sweeter part­ner­ship.

This year, the an­nual SPCA Cup­cake day fundrais­ing event is sched­uled for Mon­day 29 Au­gust and is an event which will be cel­e­brated across New Zealand.

This fundraiser is in its third years and has in­di­vid­u­als, schools and com­mu­nity groups bak­ing in sup­port to help fundraise for this wor­thy agency.

With 100 per cent of the funds raised lo­cally go­ing to the Cen­tral Otago Branch of the SPCA, it’s com­fort­ing to know that all the work un­der­taken in the Com­mu­nity for Cup­cake day will di­rectly ben­e­fit an­i­mals and the SPCA’s ser­vices in the area.

The countdown is well un­der­way for the an­nual SPCA CUP­CAKE FUNDRAIS­ING EVENT be­ing held on Mon­day 29 Au­gust, and there is still am­ple time to regis­ter on line to sup­port this ma­jor fundrais­ing drive for the SPCA and to start plan­ning for the cook­ing and cre­at­ing of cup­cakes

The aim of this unique fundrais­ing ap­peal is to bake and sell cup­cakes with the pro­ceeds go­ing back to the lo­cal SPCA. Any­one can par­tic­i­pate in Cup­cake Day; there is no age limit - Cup­cake Day is for peo­ple from the age of 1 to 100!

There are cur­rently four cat­e­gories for those who want to regis­ter which need to be in by Sun­day 28 Au­gust: - In­di­vid­u­als - for Cup­cake Cooks who wish to bake and sell their cup­cakes by them­selves - Busi­nesses - for com­pa­nies who wish to take part in Cup­cake Day or­gan­i­sa­tion­wide - Schools - for schools who wish to take

part in Cup­cake Day - Teams - for groups or teams who wish to take part, e.g. you and your best friends, or your Year group from school, or your de­part­ment at work. So. Fire up your oven, dust off the mix­ing bowl and whip up a batch of your scrum­mi­est cup­cakes ever.

Leave them plain or dec­o­rate them as you want. On the day, sell the cup­cakes to any­one and every­one and for­ward the money to your lo­cal SPCA

Regis­ter on-line (www.sp­cacup­cake­day.co.nz). Down­load a cup­cake kit from the web­site. En­cour­age your lo­cal school to be­come in­volved.

Share the idea with other Com­mu­nity groups. En­ter one of the com­pe­ti­tions be­ing held as part of this event, with en­tries clos­ing on Fri­day 9 Septem­ber, 5pm.
