Tampa's Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale of 2011 to benefit Feral Cats, was a HUGE success! With the help of lots of awesome volunteers, over $600 was raised to benefit Spay/Neuter surgeries for feral cats as part of the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) Program. This will provide spay/neuter surgeries for up to 60 cats with the use of programs such as the monthly Spay Day at the Animal Coalition of Tampa (ACT) and Feral Cat Mondays at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
I want to take a moment to give a special thanks to all of my hardworking friends and volunteers for helping me turn my vision of a bake sale to benefit feral cats into a reality. I couldn't have done it without your help. I'm very lucky to know such awesome people. Not only did we raise over $600 for the cats with a few donations still rolling in. We also raised awareness for ALL animals, and proved that vegan baked goods are even better tasting than the traditional dairy and egg filled ones.
I also want to give a BIG shout out and thank you to Danny and his crew over at Mojo Books & Music for allowing us to have a Vegan Bake Sale at their store for their Annual Record Store Day Celebration. Without Danny and all the awesome people at Mojo Books & Music, this bake sale wouldn't have been nearly as successful. They allowed us to setup inside, which is a big plus for Florida bake sales, they helped advertise it on their Facebook event page, as well as shouting cupcake inspired reminders throughout the day as the bands played. They even put the left over baked goods up at their new coffee bar, and continued to collect donations for us well into the night long after we were gone.
So the next time you are in the Tampa area, don't forget to stop in at Mojo Books & Music, located at 2558 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, FL 33612. You can find everything from new and used CD's, records, books, DVD's, posters, t-shirts, and more. And coming soon, their new location, just a few doors down, which is bigger, better (if that's even possible), and has a coffee bar that will be stocked with vegan friendly selections. Mojo Books & Music has something for everyone, so stop in today and tell them that I sent you. :)
