Cupcake stores in Charleston, Mount Pleasant and Columbia are donating $1 for every special pink cupcake sold in October to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which raises money for breast cancer prevention and research.
The special cupcake is a pink vanilla cake with cream cheese icing and a sugar heart. Donations also can be made by purchasing a big pink cherry for $1 in honoring a survivor or paying tribute to a passing loved one.
The stores will tuck a self-exam card into multicupcake purchases made in October (while supplies last). The company is a gold sponsor for the Komen Race for the Cure. See www.freshcupcakes.com, Facebook.com/freshcup cakes and twitter@freshcupakes.
