At the cheque presentation are Jess Stewart, Cheryl Beasley, Jolene Moore, Alan Burns and Justine Plummer.

They did it again! Throughout the month of March, the Simply Baked Catering team hosted a Peanut Butter Ball Fundraiser to honour Cathy Burns.

Cathy Burns was a long-time community volunteer in South Mountain. She was also known for her baking skills and her famous peanut butter balls. Sadly, Cathy passed away in July 2019 after a long illness. Her family wanted to give back to the hospital as thanks for the care she received, so they shared her special recipe with the Simply Baked team. They turned it into a fundraising event in her honour.

Recently, they presented a cheque for $540 to the WDMH Foundation to support Winchester District Memorial Hospital’s Dialysis Unit. In a Facebook post, owner Cheryl Beasley noted that she is “so proud of the accomplishment of the great team at Simply Baked Catering. They scooped, rolled and chocolate dipped 108 dozen peanut butter balls in memory of Cathy Burns.”

“Thank you to Cathy’s family, the Simply Baked team, and everyone who stopped by the bakery to pick up treats in March,” sums up Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail & Events at the WDMH Foundation. “We are so grateful for your support!”
