Cupcakes for Cats

By on Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Love cats? Love cupcakes? Live in Denver? Boy, have I got an opportunity for you! Cupcakes for Cats!

On Friday, September 16th, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., there will be a cupcake sale in downtown Denver, at the 16th Street Mall, 16th and California.  But this is no ordinary cupcake sale. Funds raised will go to the Cat Care Society in Lakewood.

Six bakeries are helping: Butterfly Confetti Cakes, Cake Crumbs, Daveeda’s Delights, Happy Cakes, Lovely Confections, and Maggie & Molly’s Bakery.

Cat Care Society is a nonprofit organization that operates a cage free shelter for homeless, injured, and abused cats in the Denver area.
