AGS Club host a fundraising bake sale

The Pink Bake Sale fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, organized by Alpha Gamma Sigma (AGS) was organized Tuesday at the Mall.

Strawberry, chocolate and vanilla-flavored cupcakes decorated in pink, carrot cake, cake on stick, brownies, lemon squares, and chocolate chip cookies were sold at the fundraiser.

Members of AGS baked most of the goods, though some were also purchased.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure, formerly known as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, is the most widely-known breast cancer organization in the country.

Arnel Arenas, computer and network support specialist and sociology major, was just walking by when he saw the pink signs that led to the booth. He bought five cakes on sticks.

“My mom had breast cancer,” Arenas said. “She is survivor now, so I normally support other causes [that] do something with breast cancer.”

Cookies were 50 cents, brownies were 75 cents and all the cupcakes were a dollar.

AGS members expected to raise more than $100 from the bake sale, and send all the money straight to the organization.

“It’s good to have the guys and girls here,” said Janie Thompson, one of the club members. “The awareness is not just for women; it’s also for men. It is something that affects man, and people don’t realize that.”

Six members of AGS informed students who were passing by the Mall about the fundraiser and invited them to buy some cupcakes.

“Breast cancer is a global awareness,” said Janee Keaton, 23, theater major. “I know this fund will support some type of research for breast cancer.”

AGS is an honor society and statewide organization of community college societies since 1926 that serves the community inside and outside the campuses. They organize different programs and fundraiser to raise money for different organizations at Pierce College.
