Local weekly newspapers support “Great Cookie Dunk” event for Make-a-Wish Vermont
|May 7, 2012||Filled under Our Town||
The hearts, and stomachs, of all are gearing up to support a great fundraiser for the local Make a Wish Chapter. “The Great Cookie Dunk,” will take place during Burlington’s annual Kids Day on Saturday, May 12, in Battery Park. It is hoped that it will be a history making, world record-setting milk ‘n cookies event.
The goal is to register 1,500 participants on site. Registrants will then be given a “Dunking Kit” that includes a carton of donated Hood milk and a cookie made special for the occasion by Tipped Cow Cookies of Georgia, Vermont.
The BANG (Burlington Area Newspaper Group) papers, which include the Shelburne News and The Citizen, are proudly supporting the effort, and encouraging readers to show up hungry for milk and cookies on that Saturday.
The milk is provided by HP Hood, in cooperation with the main event sponsor, Keep Local Farms, “and courtesy of every Vermont dairy cow within a hundred miles.
