‘Bake ‘n Bike’ Sale to Fund Community Bikes, Books Behind Bars
The annual Bake ‘n Bike Valentine's Day fundraiser is rolling into its ninth year.
Right now, volunteers are taking orders for a variety of Valentine's Day treats, including heart-shaped scones to deliver to you or a sweetheart, that raise money for a cause.
The proceeds will benefit Community Bikes, a volunteer-run bike shop, and Books Behind Bars, which donates books to prisons. Last year's fundraiser raised more than $2,000.
"Yeah, we definitely put the fun in fundraiser. You can't go wrong ordering something for your sweetheart, and bringing that to someone, it really brightens their day that someone was thinking about them on Valentine's Day," said volunteer coordinator Shelly Stern.
A costumed cyclist will deliver orders in the city. This year, people can place their orders online until Valentine's Day.
