Chocolate Shoe Box to host vegan bake sale to benefit animal sanctuaries

August 23rd, 2011 by Doree

The Chocolate Shoe Box, at 7410 Greenwood Ave. N., is hosting a vegan bake sale to benefit animals, on Sept. 3-4. One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the two-day sale, plus 10 percent of the store’s sales those days, will go to Precious Life Animal Sanctuary in Sequim, and Chimpanzee Sanctuary NW in Cle Elum.

The sale happens during regular business hours, which are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bakers are still needed.

We ask that all baked goods be vegan, meaning no dairy, eggs, honey or any other animal derived ingredient. Allergy/ingredients lists must accompany your baked good and we request that all items be individually wrapped to limit hand to food contact. Register to be a baker or for more info contact: chocolateshoebox@gmail.com.

For more information, see the event’s Facebook page.

Chocolate Shoe Box hosting bake sale for animal sanctuary

February 16th, 2011 by Doree

The Chocolate Shoe Box at 7410 Greenwood Ave. N. is hosting a vegan bake sale on Saturday and Sunday to benefit Precious Life Animal Sanctuary in Sequim. The bake sale runs from 12-6 p.m. both days.

(T)hese wonderful people rescue horses, pigs, cows, rabbits, very large dogs, amongst other animals that have either been abandoned, abused or neglected. We welcome anyone wanting to donate for the event by baking as long as the item is vegan (has no animal products, such as dairy, lard, eggs, honey, etc), the items are individually wrapped to minimize hand to hand contact, and any allergy causing ingredients listed. Also, if a product is gluten free it would be terrific if they were marked, as they sell very well. Folks with a sweet tooth are also most welcome, especially if they are curious about tasting vegan baked goods.
