Sweets & Beats to Defeat ALS Fundraiser!

Lisa & Jacob’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! from Petunia’s Pies & Pastries on Vimeo.

We are so thrilled about all of the awareness that ALS has received lately! Our owner Lisa & Manger Erica’s mother passed away from ALS in 1997. You may have seen her photo hanging in the bakery, or her ceramic pig Petunia adorning the wall, which is where our name comes from! When we were challenged to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, we were happy to accept! Please see above for our video!  We still wanted to do something more to help fight the cause.

We are so excited to announce that on Saturday 9/13, we will be hosting our very first fundraiser,  Sweets & Beats to Defeat ALSPlease join us for a quick treat, a meal, dessert and/or drinks! Our favorite DJ, DJ Onlychild will be back spinning his sweetest Saturday beats! All profits made that day will be donated to The ALS Association OR & SW Washington Chapter through our walk team, Kathy’s Cuties!  Every year we do the Portland Walk to Defeat ALS, which is on 9/28 this year. For more information on the Walk to Defeat ALS, the ALS Association, to make a donation or to read our personal stories with the disease, please visit our team page at http://web.alsa.org/goto/Kathys_Cuties.
