We are honored to benefit City of Hope‘s breast cancer research in memory of our dear friend, Emik Swartz, who used to make all of the delicious desserts & goodies for this event. We also dedicate this show to friends and family who have lost their fight with breast cancer, those who are currently battling & those who are survivors of this disease.
Founded in 1913, City of Hope is one of only 41 of the nation’s comprehensive cancer care centers. Their mission is to transform the future of health care by turning science into practical benefit, hope into reality.
Help us reach our goal! 
We are donating 10% of our net proceeds to City of Hope cancer research centers. We’re hoping to raise $10,000! Even if you can’t join us the day of the event, we will be accepting donations to help us reach our goal.
