Friday, a Charlottesville company offered up some sweet treats for charity. Dominion Digital took part in a Cookies for Kids' Cancer event at their Innsbrook and downtown Charlottesville offices to raise money for children with the disease.
One of their employees, Jay Hogan, had a daughter that died of leukemia last year. So his co-workers pitched in and put together a stand with over 50 different kinds of cookies to sell for kids in need.
Organizers say the entire office put a lot of effort into it. Office manager Hannah Kidd said, "We're a very sort of geeky, nerdy, techy company, so there was a lot of research about not just a good recipe, but what is the world's best oatmeal cookie recipe. We have to find the best one, not the easiest one, and that way we can make sure we have the absolute best cookies for you to come by and try."
Cookies for Kids' Cancer is a national nonprofit. Its organizers say pediatric cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 18.
