Last week I had the pleasure of participating in JAFCO’s Third Annual Fun in the Sun Event on Long Island. JAFCO is a non-profit organization that helps abused and neglected Jewish children find group shelters, homes, and mentoring in Jewish communities and families. The help and guidance that the organization provides to young children and teenagers paves the way for these individuals to be successful and happy adults. I was thrilled to be a part of the event by providing a raffle item and sharing profits of cookie sales with the charity.
The event was a great opportunity to help JAFCO, but it was also a great opportunity to share my brand with some new people. I showed up with hundreds of cookies packaged for sales, a slideshow with photos of my products and samples of the Triple Chocolate Cookies and Black and White Blondies. Everybody loves samples.
The cookies I brought to sell were the KISD Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, Triple Chocolate Cookies, S’mores Cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Chocolate Buttercream.
Chocolate Chip was by far the most popular with the Triple Chocolate following as second popular. Sidenote: who were all of these people telling me they don’t like peanut butter?!
While I didn’t sell as many packages as I thought I might (too many dieters, apparently), I met some great women and had a huge stack of business cards disappear. Thank you so much to JAFCO for doing what you do and letting me be a part of a great event!
