Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls

IMG_1233

A few weeks ago, a chef friend of mine, Heather, asked if Fanny & Jane would be interested in donating some sweets to the Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls.  Every summer, a handful of chefs and local New York restaurant owners have an annual tradition of donating whatever they got – a tray of food, a pan of brownies, whatevah – so that the campers get 1 day of a free lunch.  Chef Heather mentioned that this lunch is something that the girls and staff of the camp have really come to look forward to every year.  I had never heard of this camp, but I imagined it was something akin to a real life version of Jack Black’s “School of Rock”…and I really liked that movie.  So the decision to participate was a no-brainer!

As I perused the website and read up a little bit about the camp, I became increasingly excited to be working with this particular camp.  It quickly became clear that the mission of this camp very closely aligns with Fanny & Jane’s own ideas to do what you love and seek your sweet life!  I think this notion is best expressed in the Statement of Purpose portion of their website, which reads as follows:

The organization brings together girls and women from diverse communities and encourages them to explore self-expression through music, hone their critical thinking skills, build meaningful alliances with other girls and women, develop confidence in making healthy choices in their lives, and effect positive change in their communities and in the world.

Rock on.

If you would like more information on this wonderful organization or how you can donate, please visit their website.

They picked up their order of Fanny & Jane cookies this morning.  I secretly wish that I could be a fly on the wall of the lunch, just so I can see these littler rocker chicks.  : )

Enjoy the chipwiches, ladies!
