“We are on a mission to end breast cancer for good, one sweet treat at a time,” said Bakes for Breast Cancer Founder Carol Sneider. “We can’t believe how our signature event continues to grow at the rate it does, even as we approach our twenty-second year here in Massachusetts, even during the toughest of times the hospitality industry has faced since spring of last year. We’re grateful and thankful that during the challenges they face, they still find the time and resources to partner with us so we can help eradicate breast cancer once and for all.”
There are two ways to participate in Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer Massachusetts – establishments can offer one designated dessert where 100% of the proceeds go towards Bakes for Breast Cancer, or offer their entire dessert roster where 50% of the proceeds goes back to the organization. Since its inception in 1999, Bakes for Breast Cancer has raised over 2 million dollars. To date, over 4,500 different bakeries, cafés, pastry shops, supermarkets, and restaurants have participated throughout annual events in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine and Cape & Islands.
Proceeds raised will benefit the nonprofit breast cancer organization Bakes for Breast Cancer which will support the research of Dr. Rachel Freedman. Dr. Freedman’s clinical trials will focus on treatment for older breast cancer patients, an area of research that has been vastly under subsidized.
