A SWEET WAY TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE FOUNDATION FOR ALZHEIMER RESEARCH!! Places are limited and will be given on a first-come first-serve basis - more details below...
The aim is to raise money to donate to the Foundation for Alzheimer Research (www.alzh.org). The Foundation (based in Zellik, Belgium) awards grants to scientists to help finance their research into the causes of and treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. The Foundation receives no Government funding, and instead has to rely on voluntary donations from private individuals and a contribution from the King Badouin Foundation “Fonds Aline”. All monies received at these cupcake sessions will go directly to the Foundation. No overheads are paid from the donations.
There will be a demonstration on how to make delicious cupcakes and how to decorate them with frostings. You will receive a free copy of the recipe to take home, along with many handy hints to guarantee success with your own baking. Following the demonstration we’ll go on to have a very fancy afternoon tea, which includes lots of savoury titbits to tempt the non-sweet-toothed amongst us. But of course the afternoon tea includes the tasting of the cupcake!
The basic price is Eur 16.50 per person, and should you wish to get rid of any small coins weighing down your purse or wallet then all donations will be gratefully received. Cupcakes will also be available for takeaway at Eur 2.50 each.
The session for the Aussie Society will take place on Sunday afternoon 21 June, in Sint-Stevens Woluwe. Start time is 13.30 and we should finish around 17.00.
Places are very limited and will be given on a first-come first-serve basis. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your place today! Confirmation will then be sent, along with more details about how to make your payment and the exact address/how to get there.
The Society would like to kindly thank Lynne Nolan for hosting us for this activity.
