Seniors Katarina Faulkner and Vanessa Corona are holding the “Let Gold Be Told 24 Karat CupcakeCompetition” tomorrow in the ballroom. All seniors will continue to be working on their capstones until the April and May.

“We organized our cupcake competition in order to promote awareness for pediatric cancer patients and to raise money for a foundation that uses donations for research. We are hoping to provide a fun way for students and teachers to learn more about pediatric cancer while raising money towards finding a cure,” Faulkner said.

A $10 registration fee is required and all money will be donated to The Honeysuckle Foundation for Children with Cancer.

“We organized our cupcake competition in order to promote awareness for pediatric cancer patients and to raise money for a foundation that uses donations for research. We are hoping to provide a fun way for students and teachers to learn more about pediatric cancer while raising money towards finding a cure,” Faulkner said.

Students’ interested in signing up for the competition can do so no later than today. Sign up sheets are in Chef Linda Burn’s room – B113 and Mrs. Laura Penrod’s room – C124.

“We planned this challenge to help support children diagnosed with cancer. Overall, we want everyone to be informed about the obstacles these kids face on a daily basis while fighting a battle with cancer. This event is a “mini version of the event that the Honeysuckle Foundation will be hosting in September,” Corona said.

The cupcake competition will begin at 3 p.m and end at 5 p.m. in the ballroom. There will be a first, second, and third place winner. The winners will receive a gold, silver, or bronze trophy depending what they placed.

“I know Vanessa and Kat are hoping for a huge turnout tomorrow since the competition will raise money for the Honeysuckle Foundation that supports children with cancer. Their capstone helps raise money to find a cure, there is no better way to end the school year. I love baking and helping other people so I’ll be there,” senior Casandra Carrasco said.
