October is one of our favorite months here at NYCC for many reasons. With Halloween just around the corner we're having so much fun decorating both the cupcakes and the store! Another reason we love October so much is because every October we partner up with St. Jude for the Pin Up a Pumpkin Promotion! St. Jude Children's Hospital holds a spot very dear to our hearts. While working for corporate Gymboree, the owner of New York Cupcakes had a chance to visit the hospital and was touched by the experience. St. Jude is a top notch medical facility for many reasons. Patients aren't charged a penny and have every thing paid for. The staff at St. Jude does everything in their power to ensure that the lifestyles of the patients and their family stays as normal as possible. Patients and their families are housed, have their meals provided, and are able to continue almost all the activities they participated in prior to the diagnosis. For the above mentioned and many, many more reasons, the work that is done at St. Jude is a lifeline for children around the world. Everything at the hospital is donation based, so we love contributing to such an overwhelmingly great cause.
In addition to Halloween and the St. Jude fundraiser, we have some exciting events during October. The first event we will be participating in is the Ruffles and Rust event at the Monroe Evergreen Fairgrounds on October 22nd. Home made crafts and antiques are among the many things being sold, and the best part is we will be handing out cupcakes in a variety of tasty flavors. This event comes at a great time to be thinking about holiday gifts.
Then coming up in November we have even more events. The first, on November 4th, is a Clutch Event, "Stylish In Seattle". This should be a fun one! Report shoes will be there showing off the upcoming trends in shoes. There will also be stylists and a mini treatment from Caruh Salon!
Finally, we're so excited to be a part of Cupcakes Take the Cake's 6th Birthday Bash in Seattle. Cupcakes Take the Cake is the #1 cupcake blog, and we love their site! We will be providing plenty of fun flavors for this event! For ticket information go to http://javacupcake.ticketleap.com/cupcakest...ke-the-cake-6th-birthday-bash/
