The 5th National Cupcake Day, for kids with cancer, took place at Eastgate Shopping Centre on the 26th of September in the Mr Price Home Court. The annual event, which was hosted by Cupcakes of HOPE, raised a total donation of R37 341, 50.
Over thirty volunteers assisted to sell over 3000 cupcakes in support of the community-driven project. Dressed in colourful pink shirts and crowns, selling delicious cupcakes beautifully displayed on trays and tables, the volunteers created a positive attraction in the court, raising awareness for National Cupcake Day and support for the cause.
Cupcakes for HOPE is a Non-Profit organisation that aims to raise awareness for families in need of medical assistance. Linda Sophocleous, Fundraiser for Cupcakes for HOPE, thanked Eastgate Shopping Centre and its volunteers: ‘Each and every one of you is truly special and amazing, and you’ve made a difference in someone’s life today.’
