Making a Difference

One cupcake at a time…

On Wednesday, November 29th, CKNW radio held a live broadcast from the Fairmont Hotel to raise funds for the CKNW Orphans’ Fund. This was the 40th Annual pledge day and this year the broadcast assisted in raising an impressive 1.3 million dollars! This special children’s charity provides grants to thousands of children in BC living with special needs. The broadcast is a live conversation with some of the most influential philanthropists in Vancouver who appear as guests during the day. Their thoughtfulness inspires listeners to give generously + get involved in their community. Every appearance is aimed at bringing attention to the charity and to inspire those around us to make a positive difference.

Take Five Café was proud to be invited to this live radio broadcast.  Each year, we support the campaign through the sales of Pink Cupcakes with all proceeds going to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund.  Over the past eight years, over 12,000 cupcakes have been baked + sold with a total donation of just over $14,000!! That’s a lot of cupcakes. And we can’t wait to make even more next year!

Take Five Café is proud to support such an important cause and hope you will consider doing the same. Watch for us in February 2018 when our cupcakes make their comeback! 2018 will mark the ninth consecutive year involved with the charity – we hope you’ll be a part of it.
