On Thursday, January 9, 2014, an article written by Child Advocates II, Inc. (CAII) Board Member Kristine Lamont was published in the Chronicle edition of the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper.
Advertising the CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids fundraiser, the article provides the general public with a basic introduction to the upcoming event, a friendly competition for amateur and professional bakers.
In addition to the newspaper, CAII has also arranged for appearances on local television and radio to promote the fundraiser and increase awareness of the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem Program and our mission.
Later today on Sunday, January 12, Lamont will be joined by fellow CAII Board Member Dana Powell for an episode of The Good Morning Show on WCTV-DT (8:00 AM, Channel 6.1). Lamont will also join Circuit Director Deborah Moore, CAII Board President Brian Sealey and host Tom Flanigan on Thursday, January 16 for an episode of Perspectives on WFSU-FM (11:00 AM, 88.9 FM).
Thank you to Kristine Lamont for her work organizing the CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids event and sharing our program with the public.

Thursday, January 9, 2014
On Saturday, Feb. 8, Child Advocates II (CAII) will hold a Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids fundraiser from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Leon High School cafeteria. The competition offers professionals, amateurs and youth an opportunity to submit cupcakes and cookies for judging in a friendly competition.
Profits from the event will be used to support the Second Judicial Circuit's Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program. The public can purchase tickets to enjoy a selection of the entries and learn which entries are winners.
Visit the website (www.gal2.org/cupcake) to view a copy of the rules, enter the competition, become a sponsor, and purchase tickets. Tickets will also be sold at the door on the day of the event.
There are 5 levels of competition: Professional ($50 entry fee), Amateur ($30 entry fee), and Youth High, Middle and Elementary School ($15 entry fee).
Each ticket to the event costs $20 and has 10 stamps on it. Ticket holders use the stamps to buy a cupcake or cookie. One stamp will buy one mini-cupcake, one cookie or one cupcake box; two stamps will buy one regular size cupcake. If people use up the stamps on their ticket, they may purchase additional tickets at the door.
Sponsorships are available at a number of levels with benefits including complimentary entries and complimentary tickets.
Child Advocates II is a local non-profit corporation which supports the Second Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem program. Visit the GAL (www.gal2.org) and the CAII (https://gal2.org/about/child-advocates-ii) websites to learn more about the program and the organization and how you can help.
