Hi, our names are Julia Damiani, Emily Verbeck, Grace French, MacKenzie Wiedel, and Annika Laberge-Shusterman.
We are from the U11 Black Rage soccer team and we are in the Rage leadership program. For our community service project, we chose to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Susan G. Komen Fund. Our group chose breast cancer as our cause because one of our grandmothers was diagnosed with breast cancer over this past summer.
We had a bake sale on November 17 on the corner of Main St. at the farmer’s market in Pleasanton. We made various kinds of cookies, brownies, and muffins. Our group was able to raise $325 for this great organization. During the morning at the farmer’s market, we met many people who were very thankful for what we were doing, including a man who bought numerous baked goods and then donated them back to us to resell and raise more money. We werevery happy to raise money for a great cause and do something fun at the same time. We had a great time in our leadership class and appreciate all the things we learned!
