Love Cookies? Hate Cancer? There's a Bake Sale for That.

Pin It  For those of us who enjoy baking, the holidays present an excellent opportunity to put our creative thinking caps on and whip up batches upon batches of sweet, delicious treats.

But, if you don't feel like getting all hot and bothered in front of the oven this year, we've got a pretty attractive solution for you.

It's Milwaukee's biggest bake sale. On Saturday, December 8th. And it supports an awesome cause.

You'll love the expressions on your friends' and family's faces when you present them with a gorgeous display of delightful confection, and you'll feel even better when you remember that every penny you spent went straight to an organization that is fighting childrens' cancer.

Be a good cookie.  If you're in the Milwaukee area, come to the bake sale.
And buy -- don't bake -- some of your holiday cookies and treats this year. All proceeds will be donated to Cookies for Kids' Cancer, an organization whose sole purpose is to advance the research needed to advance treatments for pediatric cancer.

If you're too far away to attend, show your support by making a donation to our cause.  It's easy. Just click here.

OXO, makers of fine kitchen utensils, will match every dollar you spend. The Glad Corporation will donate $1 for every cookie sold. Get yourself on the nice list, and build a better world.

The MKEfoodies Annual Holiday Bake Sale will be held Saturday, December 8 from 12-4pm at the Historic Pabst Brewery, located at 901 W. Juneau Avenue in Milwaukee. For more information, visit

If you need additional motivation to attend, I've got two pieces of information that might persuade you:

  1. We'll be bringing along about a dozen gift boxes of our delicious chocolate covered brandy cordial cherries to sell at the sale.
  2. Peef will be making an appearance as Santa Claus and will be handing out door prizes to anyone who puts at least $2 into the donation jar at the door!

So, whaddaya think?  See you there?
