No Kid Hungry Bake Sale

Lindsey Minnich, a business analyst at SofterWare, has a daughter, Morgan, who loves to bake. Lindsey reminded us that when Morgan sang in our company’s children holiday singing video, “she was busy at work rolling gingerbread dough…over…and over…and over.

Lately she has really developed a love of all things baking and cooking, so, the other day she saw an ad for the No Hungry Kid campaign and said, ‘Mom, we should have a bake sale!’. If any of you know where I live, it’s not exactly the kind of road a 5 year old can set up a stand and sell lemonade and chocolate chip cookies on the side of. So what to do? I got to thinking – we here at SofterWare like to eat! From our Second Friday donuts to our departmental birthday cakes to our company-wide BBQs and lunches, we know how to throw together some grub. Many of these events feature tasty snacks from our own great chefs and bakers! It was perfect! SofterWare could host the sale and make my little baker’s idea a reality. The best part is we’d be supporting a great cause and we’d be the recipients of some delicious treats!”

Who: The fabulous bakers and dessert connoisseurs at SofterWare contributed a baked good for the sale and/or by purchased some yummy treats.

What: A bake sale to support the No Kid Hungry organization. All of the proceeds raised from SofterWare’s sale will be donated to the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, a local beneficiary of the No Kid Hungry program.

So here’s Lindsey she put together, with the help of Laura Bigelow and a host of bakers and purchasers (my category).

  • Chocolate chip cookies – both traditional and vegan
  • Strawberry cake parfaits
  • First prize winning pound cake
  • Chocolate cupcakes
  • Snickerdoodle cookies
  • Fruit tarts fit for royalty (I ate mine in under 3 minutes)
  • Passover approved items
Mike Sernoff Bake Sale

Mike Sernoff, Senior VP and happy customer. I’m sure he bought some for his wife Abby, but I’m not sure how much made it home!

Doug Bake Sale

Doug Schoenberg, CEO and star of our blood drive, replenishing his blood with blue-ribbon winning pound cake baked by the 92 year old mother-in-law of our own Debbie Scarlett Foster!

As a result of the bake sale, we raised over $650! Way to go to Morgan, Lindsey, and everyone at SofterWare. It was a true win-win!
