“Family Fun Day is a way for Garden State Good Cookies to give back to our community for the support it continues to show our cause at every bake sale and charity event,” said Elyse Dub, co-founder of the Millburn-Short Hills chapter of Cookies For Kids’ Cancer. “Since we began our 2014 campaign six weeks ago, we’ve raised close to $10,000 hosting eight bake sales and two fundraising events. With the help of the community, we hope to surpass our goal of raising $45,000 over the past four years. We look forward to seeing all of our neighbors on May 10th. Families are welcome to spend the whole day with us or stop by in between birthday parties, sports games or practices.”

Local community groups have also organized Garden State Good Cookies bake sales at Wyoming Elementary, Deerfield Elementary, Hartshorn Elementary, South Mountain Elementary, Glenwood Elementary, Integrated Preschool, Millburn Middle School, Franklin School in Summit, JCC, TBJ, Neighborhood House, The Community Congregational Church, Christ Church, Saint Rose of Lima, Little Learners in Livingston, and Alpine Montessori this spring.
