Thank you to all the volunteers, bakers, and sponsors, along with individuals and team sellers for their amazing energy and dedication to our Pie in the Sky bake sale. With the community’s united efforts, we surpassed our goal and raised over $127,000 which helps ensure individuals who are living with AIDS or cancer have hot meals, not only during the holidays but throughout the year. What an amazing example of love and generosity from our supporters throughout San Diego County!
Each pie sold provides seven hearty, nutritious meals for a neighbor who is too ill to shop or cook. Proceeds from this year’s pie sales will directly fund more than 40,000 free, hot and nutritious Mama’s Kitchen meals.
Special thanks go to Wells Fargo, who provided pie pick up locations throughout San Diego County, and to Sycuan, who generously baked and donated 800 delicious pies! Other sponsors include Walmart, The Original Pancake House of Poway and Temecula, San Diego Magazine, Energy 103.7, KyXy 96.5, San Diego Uptown News, and SDGLN.com. Much praise goes to our phenomenal individual and team sellers, who are the secret ingredient to our success. To find out more, visit www.mamaspies.org.
