Fighting Pediatric Cancer, One Sweet Bite at a Time in RVA

As the summer winds down, and the kids return to school, the sweet smell of freshly baked cookies will waft through Carytown on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Join the Rhudy & Co. team and some of our work friends this Saturday, Sept. 8, in Carytown, in front of Need Supply at South Belmont and Cary streets, as we support Cookies for Kid’s Cancer at the 3rd Annual Bake Sale in RVA.

What’s better than cookies for an incredible cause?

About the organization

Cookies for Kid’s Cancer is a national non-profit organization founded by former Richmonder Gretchen Holt Witt, who lost her son Liam to cancer in 2011. Michele and Jonathan Rhudy worked with Gretchen years ago at Carter Ryley Thomas PR (now CRT/tanaka).

Cookies for Kids Cancer raises money that goes directly toward research and new and improved pediatric cancer therapies in the U.S.  

Think a bake sale can’t make a difference? Last year, the Richmond community raised more than $31,000 in just one day. In 2010, we raised more than $35,000.

With your support, and the delicious cookies baked by Daystar Desserts in Hanover, we aim to make this year an even greater success. 

Who knew a cookie could be so good?
