    I have asked the following popular people who are working in Vancouver for Television shows by Twitter to publish the event Bake for the Quake to their followers. Even though its a local event, would not hurt to spread the word.

    Good luck with the event!

    Loved the Bake for the Quake event last night and hope you raised a lot of money. Great fundraiser. Just wondered where to find the winning raffle ticket numbers. Thanks, Colleen

    Thank you! I went there last night it was crazy! I had to wait 45 minutes in the line up to finally get in, and spent for $70 in yummy baked goods. Most of my money went for canneles de bordeaux and earl grey macaroons at *french made baking* and I am so excited I finally found a place to get canneles! thank you so much again for that!
