Clutter and Cupcakes for CHEO

Cupcakes, waffles, coffee and cake-pops – all for a good cause. What could be better than that?

A community garage sale!  Come out for a treat and find a treasure at the Community Garage & Sweet Sale event for Cheo on Saturday September 22, 8am-12pm, St. Maurice Church.

Gabriella is only five years old. On August 19th, experiencing sharp pains, she was rushed to CHEO. Friends and family were shocked when the vibrant and active little girl fell ill and a large Wilms tumour was found on her right kidney. Gabriella started chemotherapy at the end of August and will continue to have weekly treatments until the spring of next year. A surgery to remove her right kidney is planned at CHEO once her condition stabilizes.

Gabriella’s mother Lidia was so inspired by the amazing care and support provided by CHEO and Candlelighters that she wanted to give back, involving the Ottawa community and creating Clutter & Cupcakes for CHEO. Dedication, creativity and a strong, supportive community coming together makes this event really special. The event is free to attend or a $10 donation to set up and sell your own clutter (spaces limited, contact for availability and more information).
