Calendar Raising Funds for Breast Cancer Unveiled
An area bakery is putting a sweet twist in raising money and awareness for breast cancer. Tuesday, HaliHannigan’s Cupcakery launched its “Show Us Your Cupcakes” 2012 calendar, which features everyone from Miss Tennessee to ‘Cousin Tuny’, holding the bakery’s cupcakes. The money raise will benefit the American Cancer Society. 7 Eyewitness News spoke with co-owner Neil Bartlett on what he hopes to accomplish with the unique fundraiser. “I hope that people, firstly, get enjoyment out of it. We’ve tried to have a little fund with a very serious subject,” said Neill Bartlett of HaliHannigan’s Cupcakery. “Sometimes, you know, a line, to look at it can get the message across even more. We hope that people will take it, spread the message.” 7 Eyewitness News anchors Brad Douglass and Keli McAlister and Chief Forecaster Gary Pickens were featured in the calendar for the month of January. Calendars are available at HaliHannigan’s, located on Vann Drive for $11.
