Cupcake fundraiser benefits Penticton SPCA

Sale in Summerland raises $525 to benefit animals

Three Summerland children sold 150 cupcakes on Saturday as a fundraiser for the Penticton SPCA.

Jeanne Rainville, eight; Violet Gilman, nine and Hercules Gilman, 10 held the fundraiser as a way to support animals. The Early Bird Cupcake Event raised $525.

“We need to help dogs in need. We like dogs and animals,” said Hercules Gilman.

The sale was held at Koncept Kalifornia on Main Street.

Cupcakes were made by volunteers and were available by donation.

Why cupcakes?

“Cupcakes are easy to put decorations on and easy to make,” he said.

“And everybody likes them,” added Violet Gilman.

The sale was held in advance of the B.C. SPCA’s cupcake day, which was held on Monday.

Mikaela Etter organized the fundraiser. Lori Beattie, Sherry Frearson, Linda Galpin, Heather Hill and Pamela Love helped to make the cupcakes, while Serge Valley and Zoe Clark assisted at the sale table on Saturday.

Customers who donated $20 or more were eligible to win a skateboard, donated by Koncept Kalifornia.
