Why the Cookie Monster Will Love Carytown this Saturday

The Cookie Monster will love Carytown this Saturday, Sept. 7, as the 4th annual RVA Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale is in full swing.

Join the Rhudy & Co. team and some of our friends in Carytown, on the corner of Belmont and Cary Street, in front of Need Supply Co. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as we support this annual fundraiser to support pediatric cancer research as well as new and improved pediatric cancer therapies across the U.S.

About the organization

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

Think a city-wide bake sale can’t make a big difference? The RVA community is the highest grossing Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale in history and has raised $150,000 for pediatric cancer research over the last three years.

A city-wide bake sale wouldn’t be possible without the help of Daystar Desserts in Ashland baking more than 20,000delicious cookies.

How can you get involved?

  • Cookies will be sold in packages of three, for a suggested donation of $5. Flavors being offered include: chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sugar and white chocolate macadamia nut.
  • Come join the fun, pick your favorite cookie and support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
  • If you’re in downtown Richmond on Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., look for the Winn Transportation Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Trolley to buy your baked goodies.
  • Review other RVA bake-sale locations and spread the word via Facebook .
  • Not in RVA but still want to help? You can still support Cookies for Kids' Cancer from afar.

Michele Rhudy loves cookies as much as she loves volunteering for the RVA Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake Sale along with her daughters, husband, friends and co-workers.
