This week's sweet treats come to us from Dawn, who wrote to me about a cupcake-themed fundraising event that helped raise money for her local shelter.
Our small volunteer organization, CCLAS (Citizens Committee for the Lakewood Animal Shelter), that supports our local animal shelter, recently hosted a Cupcake Wars Fundraiser to raise money to help the homeless animals at our community.
Lulu's Cookies and Cream Cupcakes by Yvonne C.
The event was hosted and organized by five volunteer board members, Kate, Celeste, Yvonne, Lindsay, and Dawn, and our volunteer bakers were Connie, Melanie, Margaret, Zack, Pam, Sara, Mary, Sarah, and Yvonne. Our judges were CCLAS Board President Kate, Cio from Rosy Girl Cupcakes, and Karen from KB Confections.

The grand winner was Sarah with her Mint Chocolate Cupcakes and tribute to her adopted kitty, Boo. Runners-up were Margaret and Mary. The People's Choice co-winners Mary and Melanie.
We raised about $400 from the event. The funds will be used to support our spay and neuter program with the shelter.
