After many celebrated years of raising funds for breast cancer research in Boston one sweet treat at a time, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer has finally made its way to the Ocean State with the creation of Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer.
Founded by Carol Brownman Sneider in memory of her mother, Eva Brownman, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer has been held since 2000. Since the event began, it has raised more than $700,000 for breast cancer research and care at the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers at Dana-Farber through the Eva Brownman Research Fund.
From May 11 through May 17, participating restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries, cafés, chocolate and ice cream shops throughout Rhode Island will designate all sales of one specific dessert to support breast cancer care and research. Participating eateries and retail establishments include CupCake Charlies, Ellie's Bakery, The Mews Tavern, and many more. Proceeds will be shared by Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Bakes for Breast Cancer, Inc. So why not indulge?
