    Bakes for Breast Cancer is proud to announce that Treats of Maine, 80 Main St., in Wiscasset is participating in the inaugural Bakes for Breast Cancer Maine.

    Bakes for Breast Cancer Maine is the fourth event in their annual series of events which helps raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research. The inaugural Bakes for Breast Cancer Maine takes place from Monday, Aug. 2 to Sunday, Aug. 8. Registration is currently open and interested participants can register now.

    Restaurants, bakeries, cafés, chocolatiers, sweet shops and any other venue that prides itself on its desserts can participate in one of two ways – by offering one designated dessert where 100% of the proceeds go towards the organization, or offering the entire dessert menu as designated desserts where 50% of the proceeds go to the nonprofit breast cancer organization Bakes for Breast Cancer.

    “We are on a mission to end breast cancer for good, one sweet treat at a time,” said Bakes for Breast Cancer Founder, Carol Sneider. “Providing seed money to make research possible is very rewarding. It helps those not only in our community but beyond. We continue to grow which enables us to do more. I’m completely in awe of the people who support the venues and our organization in a number of other ways. We’re pleased to have been able to grow this year’s initiative with the expansion to Maine and be a part of the robust culinary scene that’s developed there in recent years.”
