Jenni has recently stopped collecting cupcake orders and ended the fundraiser.
Many of you will recall an article I recently wrote about a local young lady, Jenni Nguyen, who was using a “different” type of fundraiser to earn money to attend a college summer program from July 31st to August 10th this summer. Jenni’s goal is to attend UC-Berkeley for journalism after high school and with that goal in mind she had submitted a scholarship essay hoping it would help with funding the $3,000 summer program tuition.
The good news is that Jenni WAS awarded a $2,300 scholarship and along with our readers and everyone else’s help was able to raise $1,100 by baking and delivering custom designed cupcakes. Jenni informed me yesterday that combined, “the scholarship and fundraiser completely cover my costs for the trip“. Jenni wants to thank you so much for your help and that she couldn’t have done it without you!
