The 12th annual Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer will run from Monday, May 2 through and including, Sunday, (Mother’s Day) May 8, 2011!  This year’s event is dedicated to the memory of Colleen O’Farrell, a good friend and colleague to the Fox 25 Morning News team.

We are so excited about the 12th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer! It is time to make it happen, turn it into a reality!   Kick it off in grand style and let it fly!  Time to see what restaurants, bakeries, cafes, ice cream and chocolate shops will participate for the first time and time to see who will want to participate again!

Can we surpass the success we had last year?   Can we get more than the participants 220 we had last year?  Can we raise more than the $70,000 we raised for breast cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in 2010?

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer has raised and donated over $500,000 to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston one sweet at a time!  What a wonderful milestone to have reached with the help of so many!

We are sad for the restaurants that have participated in last year’s event that have closed since the last Boston Bakes!  They will be missed!

We have been working hard in the “off” season and hope to have many exciting news to share with you in the future!

Boston Bakes has been my passion and my life for so long and I have been lucky to have met and have the help of some wonderful, dedicated new friends who so believe in what we do and want to turn my dreams into reality.  In time and with their help and the help of new volunteers there is so much more we can do and hope to do! It is a very exciting time for us!

2011 is going to be a great year for 12th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer and with your help and support we can do anything!  Keep visiting our website to see who the latest participants are and the desserts that they will be serving!   Subscribe to our blog, become a fan of Boston Bakes on Facebook, follow Boston_Bakes on Twitter and invite your friend to do the same!

Donations at anytime are greatly appreciated and can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer which affects so many we know and love!  We can, have and will continue to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer until there is a cure and what we do is no longer necessary!

Join us and help us make a difference!

      Hi Jean, Thank you so much! I hope you come up for Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer but check our website as time goes on because some of our participants ship their desserts so if you can’t make it, you can still help and participate in Boston Bakes without leaving NY! Wishing you you continued good health! I will visit your site, please feel free to write what you would like.
