FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Stouffville, ON (January 16, 2018) – Preheat those ovens! National Cupcake Day™ is coming up on Monday, Feb. 26 and you’re invited to help “bake” a difference for animals in need by hosting a Cupcake Day Party any time in January or February.

Now in its sixth year, National Cupcake Day is a sweet fundraising event presented in partnership by the Ontario SPCA and the BC SPCA in support of local SPCAs and Humane Societies across the country. Proceeds from National Cupcake Day help the Ontario SPCA support our furry friends, big and small, who have been abused, abandoned, or are in need of a new home. The campaign has raised $2.45 million to date, with $600,000 raised last year by animal lovers across Canada.

“The sweetest day of the year is almost here and we need you to put on those oven mitts and start that timer to help us change the lives of animals that have endured hardship and cruelty,” says National Cupcake Day Champion Mary Berg, winner of MasterChef Canada and host of Mary's Big Kitchen Party on Bell Fibe TV, channel 1. “The funds you raise will have a significant impact on the animal welfare societies in your community, ensuring their life-saving work continues.”

Cupcake Day parties can be held anywhere, and on any date in January or February. Guests donate to the participating animal welfare charity of the host’s choice in exchange for a cupcake, raising critically-needed funds for animals that are abused, abandoned, neglected or no longer wanted.
