Treat the special women in your life to decadent desserts while also helping fight breast cancer during Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer from May 8, Mother’s Day through May 14. Restaurants, bakeries, cafés, and ice cream shops throughout Rhode Island will participate in Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer, including Eleven Forty Nine Restaurant, Not Your Average Joe’s and Legal Sea Foods in Warwick.
Establishments designate all sales of one specific dessert to support breast cancer care and research. Proceeds raised will benefit the nonprofit breast cancer organization Bakes for Breast Cancer. This year, we will be supporting the research of Dr. Heather Parsons at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Parsons research focuses on biomarkers and patient treatment.
Rhode Island Bakes for Breast Cancer was founded in 2000 by Carol Brownman Sneider in memory of her mother, Eva Brownman, who lost her battle with breast cancer. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $1,000,000.
