Twelve days of desserts to support Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association

Cakes, cookies and more will be baked by donors for online auction fundraiser

Laurey-Anne Roodenburg is still deciding which one of her many pans she will use to bake for a cause.

The Quesnel city councilor is one of many volunteers whipping up luscious desserts in support of the Quesnel & District Hospice Palliative Care Association (QDHPCA).

A daily dessert will be sold online to the highest bidder from Tuesday, Feb 1 to Saturday, Feb. 12.

“Every not-for-profit group is trying to pivot in their fundraising ideas, and so this is a really neat one,” Roodenburg said.

“QDHPCA is a wonderful organization, and I know in the past I’ve been quite surprised how much the cakes raise from their auction so I’m looking forward to it.”

Roodenburg previously made a giant cupcake surrounded by some mini ones for QDHPCA.

This year in keeping with the theme of Valentine’s Day, Roodenburg hopes to make a red velvet cake.

“The association I think, is just one of those community groups that are so important,” she said.

“When we talk about end of life planning and care, this particular group does a lot to support the hospice and it’s just one of those pieces for our community that makes it a community.”

All proceeds raised will stay in Quesnel and support those facing end-of-life care, QDHPCA wrote on social media.

The auction will close each day at 6 p.m. with bids starting at $50.

QDHPCA’s Twelve Days of Desserts fundraiser can be found on Facebook.
