Third Annual Pocono Cupcake Challenge

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) – The 3rd Annual Pocono Cupcake Challenge raised $10,374 for the United Way of Monroe County to support the non-profit’s mission to improve lives and provide solutions to those facing life’s challenges.
“My team and I are very pleased with the support we received from the community”, said Rob Howell, Pocono Cupcake Challenge. “Everyone who participated and volunteered to donate and bake cupcakes really care about helping others. More than anything else, The Pocono Cupcake Challenge was successful in bringing together our neighbors for a very wholesome day of fun.”

Between 1,200 and 1,500 people attended The 3nd Annual Pocono Cupcake Challenge. Sixty cupcake vendors volunteered to donate 10 dozen cupcakes each to sell at the Cupcake Challenge. All of the proceeds from the sales were donated to the United Way of Monroe County.
“Whenever you plan an event like The Pocono Cupcake Challenge, you always worry about the attendance”, said Tammy Pettite, The Pocono Cupcake Challenge. “We were very fortunate that this year’s event was so well attended that some of the cupcake vendors were sold out of cupcakes in less than 30 minutes.”
