3 years ago I was hired by the Liess family in Redlands to face paint at their Daughter’s birthday party and they also rented our photo booth too. I was immediately impressed with how kind and hospitable they were and I really felt like I had known them my whole life. Not long after their Daughter’s birthday party, they called again and told me about a cancer fundraiser they organize every year and again hired us for face painting and the photo booth rental for their event, Cupcakes for Cancer, which is held every April. Knowing how genuine and sincere of a family they are, it was not a surprise to me to find out what their Cupcakes for Cancer event is all about.
Turns out, their daughter, Makenna Liess, also known as “the cupcake girl”, started the Cupcakes for Cancer fundraiser after her Uncle Mark lost his battle to Cancer when she was 5 years old. Before he passed away, Makenna’s Uncle Mark took part in a clinical trial at the Johnson Cancer Center Fondation and that trial helped him live an additional two years of life! So all proceeds from the Cupcakes for Cancer fundraiser go to the Johnson Cancer Center Foundation which is a charitable foundation dedicated to treating cancer patients through clinical trials. Memorable Event Entertainment is honored to be a part of this event and help in any way we can to spread the word!
So with that said, we cordially invite you to The 7th Annual Cupcakes for Cancer Fundraiser which will be held on Thursday April 23rd, 2015 from 6pm-9pm at the Mitten Building in Redlands at 345 N 5th St. Redlands, CA 92374. There is no admission fee, but plenty of chances to purchase opportunity drawing tickets as you enjoy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, face painting for the children, photo booth pictures and of course, CUPCAKES! We encourage you to invite all of your friends and family-the more the merrier! If you can’t make the event but would still like to contribute send donations to Makenna Liess AKA The Cupcake Girl by clicking this link: http://www.cupcakesformark.com/#!donate/c24vq.
