This fundraiser really takes the cake.
This year’s annual Cakewalk at Stittsville Public School raised $2,455 and featured 286 cakes.
Parents donate the cakes (both home-made and store-bought), and then students and staff can buy raffle tickets for a chance to win their favourite creations.
The event is organized by the school’s parent council, and money raised goes towards classroom equipment (they recently helped purchased iPads and projectors for all classrooms, cultural and learning events (like Scientists in School) and other supplies and activities.
