Bake Sale Story: Ahna and Mia Valachm – Snowshoe, West Virginia

Ahna and Mia Valachm - Snowshoe, West Virginia 2Near the holidays is a great time to host fundraisers, because everyone is looking for ways to give back.  Ahna and Mia host an annual bake sale each winter, this year is going to be their 3rd year.  Each year they partner up with the Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia who help facilitate their events by giving them supplies, a location and advertising.


Their top-selling item is a hands-on activity: decorating gingerbread houses! They give the guests graham crackers and royal icing to get started.  Then the guests come back up to their table to get decorations like mini marshmallows, candy canes, cookies and other candies to decorate their gingerbread houses. Last year due to Coronavirus precautions they had gingerbread kits they sold at their bake sale.  We love this festive, creative idea they have come up with to make their bake sale stand out.


The girls’ favorite part about hosting the bake sale? Helping other kids make their gingerbread houses while raising money for No Kid Hungry.
