Thousands Raised in Cupcake Fundraiser
Thousands Raised in Cupcake Fundraiser

In just three days thousands of cupcakes were sold and thousands of dollars were raised for a school in southern Nevada.

Freed's Bakery sold 3,012 cupcakes last week raising $8,265 for Whitney Elementary School.  A huge portion of the students at that school are homeless. They often rely on the school for basic needs like food and clothing. A recent report about it on CBS Evening News generated donations from around the country.  The cupcakes were sold at the bakery at Eastern Avenue and Silverado Ranch Boulevard Thursday through Saturday.

The bake sale got a boost through the bakery's Facebook page.
