Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation
A Trip to Bountiful donates a portion of our net profits to the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation. We also have several fund raising items available on an ongoing basis in the bakery, so please ask if we can help you find one! One of the first programs we started for Loving Libbie was to supply 'Specially for Children's Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Clinic with Bountiful's (Famous) Macaroni and Cheese. It became SO popular with the kids at the clinic that we just had to supply the kids at 4 North in Dell Children's Hospital with Macaroni and Cheese too!
Next we started donating cakes for the kids who were coming out of treatment. A party is thrown for them (and rightly so!) after they finish with treatment protocol and they are presented with courage awards (like trophies) by their doctor and then they get to choose the theme for their cake. We've done Elmo, Sponge Bob and other mainstream characters, but sometimes I think they try to stump us. (Hasn't happened yet!) Penguins, a 3D Cowboy Hat and Stargate...we'll figure out how to do it!!
Then, there are kids who inevitably end up in the clinic or the hospital on their birthday...well THEY need a cake too!
It continues to grow to different functions throughout the year. In March we do the Childhood Cancer Awareness Fair which grows bigger and bigger every year.
September you'll find Bountiful Bakery and Cafe and Loving Libbie holding their biggest fundraiser of the year for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
We are so honored to be in a position to help the community and the very people who helped us through our daughter's illness.
Thank you Austin and Westlake for embracing us and allowing us to do these things! ...Becky
