It is hard to imagine 15 years ago a new event was crated that crossed every socioeconomic demographics and let anyone and everyone help in the fight against breast cancer by simply buying a dessert! We called it Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer. It had a catchy ring to it even though if you say it five times fast it becomes a tongue twister.
Small things come in good packages and never could we have imagined how we would grow from 42 participants in our first year to last year over 300 participants in over 90 Massachusetts communities. Although our name …

We honestly don’t know where the time goes. Yesterday it seems summer just started and now the trees are bare. Breast Cancer Awareness Month came and went already! When you are young and in school the school year seems to last forever. As you get older, time goes quickly.
We did not write much about Breast Cancer Awareness Month because we feel Bakes for Breast Cancer is pink 24/7 365! All year long we are pink and work hard to raise money for breast cancer! There is not a day that goes by where we don’t work on our events- Boston …
Hello! My name is Michelle Nigro and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to start volunteering with Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer. I’m 23 years old from the Boston area and I am passionate about breast cancer awareness and fundraising.
Throughout my entire life I’ve tried to do my part to spread awareness and fundraise for a cure. Growing up I would hold bake sales at school and sign up my sports teams for Breast Cancer fundraising walks in Boston.
When I entered college I started organizing my own fundraising and awareness events. As the philanthropy chair of my sorority, Alpha Epsilon Phi, at …
The first Monday in September is Labor Day and is dedicated to the American workers! Something which we should be celebrating daily for the difference they make in our lives! We celebrate them today and thank them for all they do for us.
The first Labor Day was celebrated in New York City in 1882 but that is not when it became a national holiday! Who created the holiday might be unclear but it is something we celebrate proudly every year.
When Labor Day rolls around, it always marks the unofficial end of summer which flies by once Memorial Day comes and …
Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2013 is now history! The work has been done, the desserts have been enjoyed! Soon we will be letting you know about Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer 2014!
Let’s savor the results and efforts of Boston Bakes 2013 for a little while longer!
What a week it was! Boston Bakes 2013 was dedicated to a very special and kind woman who lost her battle to breast cancer, Anna Guarino at the age of 60. She gave so much to her family and community and is missed by all who knew her. She lives in the heart of …
With two more days of Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer left for you to enjoy, another important fundraiser comes to the forefront! Boston Bites Back initiated by Ming Tsai and Ken Oringer as a way to help raise money for The One Fund and support the victims of the Marathon Bombing.
Our community united so quickly after the horrible events of April 15th – especially the restaurant community. Immediately they sprang into action. Little did we know that Ming Tsai and Ken Oringer had something even bigger in mind!
Boston Bakes takes me a year to organize where desserts rule! This is …
Who can have their fill of desserts when it goes to such a good cause as breast cancer? Not us!
Each year we are lucky to have more participants join our event and help us raise money for breast cancer!
We are even luckier that the patrons of our establishments show their support by ordering the Boston Bakes Desserts! We are lucky that many view our event like restaurant week and go to as many restaurants with their friends as possible! They go out to eat, bring desserts home, and give gifts when they shop on line! Some might even freeze a …
