Bake Sale for Charity at Garage Sale

Every neighbourhood has it's heroes and heroine's. The Golden Triangle is very fortunate to have Yasmin Burt living amongst us. Yasmin is a fourteen year cancer survivor and has spent most of those last fourteen years giving back to society in one capacity or another. She is a very special person indeed.

Just one of her acts of kindness is to produce an amazing bake sale every year at 33 Pepler Avenue during the Golden Triangle Garage Sale. she has been having the bake sale for over 10 years. Last year, she raised just over $800. All of that money goes directly to her charity of choice, Wellspring. By the way...the food is very, very tasty!

The Wellspring mission statement reads as follows;
"To create the best programs to meet the psychological, emotional and educational needs of individuals and families living with cancer and deliver those programs to people in Canada." It is important to know that all of the programs at Wellspring are free. You can learn more about Wellspring on their site at
