CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Having raised more than $50,000 for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, The Great Chappaqua Bake Sale is celebrating its fifth anniversary raising money to fight childhood hunger on Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival.
In honor of its five years, The Great Chappaqua Bake Sale will kick off a week-long promotion, “Share Our Fight with Five” with local business partners that have supported The Great Chappaqua Bake Sale since it began in 2010.
“We are proud to celebrate The Great Chappaqua Bake Sale’s fifth anniversary as one of our top grossing bake sale teams in the country, raising more than $50,000 for No Kid Hungry,” said Debbie Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength.
The promotion will begin on Saturday, Sept. 20 and participating businesses include: Auntie Penny; Chappaqua Framing; Chappaqua Paint & Hardware; The Eye Gallery; Jodi’s Gym; Marmalade; Mt. Kisco Seafood; New York Dolls; Red, Write and Blue; and Tazza.

In addition to the promotion, The Great Chappaqua Bake Sale will continue to host its popular Great Chappaqua Bake Sale Raffle.
