Who doesn‘t love a cupcake, and it tastes so much sweeter when you buy one for a good cause!
With this in mind, be sure to head down to the RSPCA Cupcake Day at Boxwood Court Dog Park, Warner, on the 15th August 10am-1pm to purchase a cupcake or two.
This is the second year in a row that Warner local Renee Hague has organised the Cupcake Day that raises much needed funds for the RSPCA. Renee’s ‘fur baby’ Buddy was a rescue dog leading her to being a big advocate for the ‘Adopt Don’t Shop’ program and loves the idea of helping out animals who are in need.
‘My first dog, Buddy was a resuce dog and had an unfortunate start in life. He needed a lot of rehab and special care. This hands on and personal experience with Buddy motivated me to help other animals get the care they need and find new loving forever homes, ’ said Renee.
‘I want to help all creatures great and small be heard, grow, find new homes and get a second chance at a happy, healthy life that they deserve.’
Last year Renee managed to raise just over $500 for the RSPCA selling cupcakes, dog friendly ‘pupcakes’, brownies and cookies. This year, she has set the bar even higher and has a target of $600 to reach.
However, this year the event isn’t just limited to sweet treats. Thanks to the support from the business community there will be a raffle taking place with some superb prizes on offer. A big thankyou goes out to local businesses; Hooray Brownies, Coffee Club Warner, Stellarossa Warner, Stone & Copper bar dining restaurant that have offered up some fabulous prizes. Furthermore, there have been some generous last minute community donations thrown in for prizes, which include a new plush dog bed, picnic blanket and a Tupperware pac,k!
Plus everyone knows coffee and cake are a winning combo so local coffee cart Energize Espresso will be on hand to sort out all those caffiene fixes.
Every year, the RSPCA receives more than 57,000 cruelty reports around Australia and cares for more than 112,000 animals who come through its doors. As a not for profit charity, they rely on the generosity and support of the community to give these animals a second chance at life.
So please head down and grab a cuppa and a cake to support this great cause.
