Dessert bar in City Island raises funds for nonprofit
Cupcakes, cake pops and other sweet treats helped raise money for the nonprofit “Hey There Beautiful” Saturday at the Man Overboard bar in City Island.
The event was put together by Kayisha Thompson, who owns De L'or Cakery just one block away.
She says she wanted to bring the community together to get to know her neighbors and raise money for the nonprofit that she feels passionate about.
Hey There Beautiful Foundation works to empower women and young girls to achieve their life goals through education, motivation, self-awareness and self-development.
Other vendors were also on hand selling everything from art to jewelry.
Thompson says she would like to make the all-you-can-eat dessert bar and fundraiser an annual event.
