D211 Post: PHS Special Education Preparing for Biennial Cupcakes for a Cause


            The Palatine High School Special Education Department will host their biennial Cupcakes for a Cause March 10, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the high school’s cafeteria.  Admission to the event is free and open to the public.  Cupcakes will be for sale at a cost of $2 each or $20 per dozen.   The event will also include raffles and a cupcake judging contest. 

            Event chairperson Dawn Shepard said the brings in such substantial funds, the department typically only holds it every other year.   The funds raised by the event are used to support organizations such as Special Olympics, Best Buddies, and Pep Club. 

            “We also make a donation to a local organization that assists our students,” Shepard said.  “This year we are donating to NWSRA (Northwest Special Recreation Association).”

            Bakers can donate cupcakes to the event by completing the registration on the event’s website or by contacting the special education department.  Bakers wanting to enter their cupcakes into the cupcake judging contest can do so through the website.  Cupcakes can be entered into one of three categories; most creative, best decorated, or best PHS-themed.
