Pan Can Fundraiser

Mara of What's for Dinner? was one of the very first blogs I started reading two and a half years ago when I joined this awesome community. I found out that she lives near me, so we've met in real life a few times. She also recently took Johnny's and my engagement photos. Mara is as sweet as they come and I'm so glad that of all the food bloggers I follow, she's one of the few that happens to live near enough me to make that bond from "online" friend to "real life" friend.

As many of you know, Mara lost her dad in January to pancreatic cancer. This is now a cause near and dear to her heart. Next Saturday, April 30th Mara will be walking a 5K in her father's memory.

Her fundraising goal is $1,000 to benefit Pancreatic Cancer Research.

Today, Friday, April 22st from 8am - 9pm Mara has organized an online flea market fundraiser.

(Click the button above to be taken directly to her blog.)

Rumor has it that many friends and bloggers have donated a whole slew of items (some tasty!) to be bid on. Mara will update the blog a few times throughout the day to reflect the highest bids emailed to her.

Mara is such a
great person and important member of our community. I really hope you go shop, bid on something, and/or donate to support her and this terrific cause!

Also, please spread the word throughout the day. Blog the link to Mara's flea market. Post it on Facebook for your family and friends. Tweet about it to your followers. Help get the word out!
