BakeMeAWish.com, the premier gifting service offering award-winning cakes and cupcakes, spread love to Veterans this Valentine’s Day by giving away 600 “Valentine’s Day Freedom Cakes” to Veterans in honor of National Salute to Veteran Patients, a nationwide program to express appreciation of our Veterans and increase community awareness of VA medical centers. The event was held at the VA New York Harbor Healthcare System’s Brooklyn Campus, 800 Poly Place, Brooklyn, NY, on February 10th at 1pm.
Joe Dornoff, President of BakeMeAWish.com, and Vicki Sarracino, Vice President of Field Operations from Soldiers’ Angels, were both on hand to give away 600 “Valentine’s Day Freedom Cakes”, cupcakes, cookies and coffee to Veteran patients at the VA Hospital. During the National Salute, which is held the week of Valentine’s Day every year, VA welcomes individuals, Veterans groups, military personnel, civic organizations, businesses, schools, local media, celebrities and sports stars to participate in a variety of activities at the VA medical centers. The activities and events include special visits and valentine distributions; photo opportunities; school essay contests; special recreation activities and Veteran recognition programs.
This is an extraordinary and patriotic gesture to honor our veteran soldiers, and not the first time that BakeMeAWish.com has shown support for U.S. troops. BakeMeAWish.com began their military initiative back in 2008 by partnering with Soldiers’ Angels. Since then, BakeMeAWish.com, has been delivering cakes to soldiers overseas and many VA hospitals throughout the U.S. including Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. and the Veterans Hospital in the Bronx, New York, to name a few.
“We are thrilled to honor our Veterans this Valentine’s Day and to show our support during the National Salute,” said Joe Dornoff, President of BakeMeAWish.com. “We encourage all consumers to show the love to Veterans too by purchasing a “Valentine’s Day Freedom Cake” for $75 for a loved one and in return BakeMeAWish.com will send another to a Veteran in a VA Hospital here in the U.S. Alternatively, consumers who spend more than $25 on BakeMeAWish.com Valentine’s Day cookies and cupcakes can put in code VETERAN and Bake Me A Wish will donate 25% toward sending a cake to a Veteran. ”
