Bakery Giveaway Supports Women’s Scholarships
In a tradition of French patisseries and celebrating the onset of spring, So Sweet Pastries is celebrating Worldwide Macaron Day with free macarons while supporting a great cause, the No Women Left Behind scholarship fund of Women of Toledo, on Saturday, March 20, starting at 10:00 a.m. while supplies last.
Customers are encouraged to come and sample delicious macarons, a delicate French sandwich cookie made from almond flour and joined together with a ganache, buttercream or jam frosting filling.
Macarons will be given for free this year (one per patron donation) with donations requested to support the No Women Left Behind (NWLB) fund of Women of Toledo. This initiative fund offers any woman or disconnected youth with financial hardship to receive direct aid, or to attend any professional educational development series or mentoring and coaching services for free within the organization.
So Sweet Pastries is located at 4038 Talmadge Rd., Toledo. For more information, visit www.sosweetpastries.com.
