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

cupcakes_webPalatine High School is gearing up for its second annual Cupcakes for a Cause fundraiser hosted by the Special Education Department. The department is looking for volunteers to bake cupcakes, donate items for raffles, and volunteers for the day of the event.

The event will take place on March 8 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.

This is a family event and is free to the public. At Cupcakes for a Cause, cupcakes, coffee, water, and milk will be available for purchase. Student entertainment will be provided, as well as free activities, such as crafts, tattoos, and face painting. Anyone who volunteers to bake cupcakes will also be eligible for the cupcake contest, in which awards will be given in each category from “Most Creative” to “Most PHS Spirited Cupcake.”

Local businesses are providing gift basket raffles, and there is also a 50/50 Split the Pot sponsored by the On Your Own club. Those winners will be randomly drawn at 1:45 p.m., and the winners do not need to be present.

Anyone interested in baking cupcakes can register by visiting the PHS Cupcakes for a Cause website. All cupcakes must be dropped off in the PHS Special Education office, Room 127, on March 7 at any time.
