Relay For Life Bake Sale

by Mackenzie Stasko on March 28, 2013

The Maple Ave. Walmart’s Relay for Life team is getting an early start on raising money for the American Cancer Society.

"Team Sparks of Hope" is having a bake sale and food wagon this weekend to raise money for Relay for Life. The bake sale is from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at the Maple Ave. Walmart.

"We have all kinds of stuff. We have brownies, we have cupcakes of many, many  flavors. We have no-bakes, peanut butter eggs. We have all kinds of stuff that people have chipped in and made cookies, cookies, cookies," said Heather Grimm, a member of the team.

The Walmart Foundation donated five-thousand dollars to the team, but Team Sparks of Hope wants to raise about twelve-thousand more dollars before June.

"We had a bake sale fundraiser for one of our associates and we made over one-thousand dollars and we’re hoping to do that again this weekend."

Relay for Life is June 8-9 at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds. You can register your team at www.relayforlife.org
