Boston Bakes 2013. A Sweet Success.
Now in it’s 14th year, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer, has evolved and grown into one of the sweetest weeks Boston and the Greater Boston area experiences.
Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer will take place May 6-12,2013! We are adding participants to our event, so keep checking back to see who is participating this year!
Last year we had record-breaking participation, and teamed up with over 270 restaurants, bakeries, and cafes across the region.
We have proudly grown from a local, small, breast cancer event fundraiser, one that honors all the mothers, daughters, fathers and families afflicted with this disease into one of the sweetest weeks in Boston.
We are thrilled to have Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as our supporting partner for our 14th consecutive year. In addition, we are proud to announce that, in 2011, our total giving to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute reached over $1.75 million dollars raised. Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2011 raised almost eighty thousand dollars for breast cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2012 raised almost $79,000. Our commitment to the cause has raised money for several cutting-edge clinical trials, visiting professorships, and the establishment of a psychosocial research and support program for patients and their families.
We were excited to announce that there were many new ways to get involved and make a difference.
- We added online donations.
- Participants that are shipping desserts direct to you.
- Bakesale program to keep the sweet giving year round.
Many of shared the sweet love, via

As we welcomed new restaurants, bakeries, and sweet establishments, with your help and support Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer was a huge success. Many visited these wonderful restaurants, sampled the creations of Boston’s finest pastry chefs to help us raise money to find cure for a disease that affects so many men and women we know and love.
