Palatine High School’s Cupcakes for a Cause Event Seeks Volunteers, Bakers

Palatine High School is gearing up for its annual Cupcakes for a Cause fundraiser hosted by the Special Education Department.

The event will take place on March 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the PHS cafeteria, and all proceeds from this event will go to special education clubs, activities, and programs, including Special Olympics, Best Buddies, PAC Club, LLS Program, SPED Art Club, On Our Own club, PEP Squad, SCED Program, and additional donations will be given to ELS families in crisis.

The event is open for the entire family. At Cupcakes for a Cause, cupcakes, coffee, water, and milk will be available for purchase. There will be free children’s entertainment, including face painting. Anyone who volunteers to bake cupcakes will also be eligible for the cupcake contest, in which awards will be given in various categories. Local businesses are providing gift basket raffles, and there is also a 50/50 Split the Pot.

Anyone interested in baking cupcakes can register by March 4 on the PHS Cupcakes for a Cause website. All cupcakes must be dropped off on March 5. Drive around to the west side of the building, Entrance 3, and students will help unload the car. Please have your cupcakes in box lids or disposable containers with labels on each type of cupcake and/or container.
