Our Friends Raising Funds
From middle and high schools holding bake sales, to golf and tennis tournaments and restaurant fundraisers, the Foundation received nearly $100,000 in donations in 2014 from local community members and businesses.
For Michelle Kupiec, owner of Kupcakes & Co. in Elkridge, donating to the hospital is both a corporate and personal mission. “We are a small business that believes in paying it forward,” says Michelle. “HCGH cared for my daughter for years when she was sick, so for the past four years we have held the Kupcakes for Santa event and donated 100 percent of our profits. My entire staff of 18 donates their paycheck for the day as well.” The store also worked with HCGH to develop a cupcake in honor of the hospital’s 40th anniversary and donated 20 percent of the sales of that cupcake during that year. “We want to be able to make a difference for patients and help purchase equipment for the pediatric department who took such good care of our daughter,” says Michelle.
For the past three years the Cattail Creek Country Club in Glenwood has supported HHF. In 2014, the club held a Tennis Classic and designated 100 percent of proceeds to benefit the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center. “The planning committee wanted to support a good charity in Howard County. We have had members who have used the Cancer Resource Center and we liked that it benefitted the patient and their family,” says Eileen Dietz, member of Cattail Creek Tennis Committee and Cattail Creek Board of Directors. The club also held a “Rally for a Cure” event in 2014 that supported the Cancer Resource Center.
