Volunteer raises funds
for Camp Celiac
Thanks to member Mimi Comfort and Williams-Sonoma for a generous donation to Camp Celiac! Mimi works for Pottery Barn, a division of Williams-Sonoma. Once a month they have a farmer’s market at the corporate offices in San Francisco and dedicate a ‘Bake Sale’ table to raising funds for their favorite charities. Mimi chose Camp Celiac, recruited 10 volunteer bakers, and her carpool buddy created a poster. Nice teamwork! They raised $642!
