Bucerias, Nayarit - Local children are getting ready for some finger-licking fun as bakery favorite, Pie in the Sky prepares to host children from local nonprofit PEACE’s alternative school, in a private cupcake decorating session Friday, October 29th.
|Pie in the Sky has two bakeries in the Banderas Bay area: Heroe de Nacozari #202 in Bucerías and at Lázaro Cardenas #247 in Puerto Vallarta. For more information, visit PieInTheSky.com.mx.|
"This will be such a treat for the kids!" said Nova Pennison, Co-Director of the PEACE Casa Comunidad program. "Events like these provide the kids with an incentive to work hard and be on their best behavior."
Numerous children and adults have completed elementary and middle school through the PEACE alternative education program. Enrolled students do not attend public school due to missing birth certificates, lack of funds, behavioral issues, lack of interest on behalf of parents or transportation issues.
The children are not only provided with free educational services, activities and daily lunches, but are visited by on-site psychologists who use interactive activities to address some of the pressing needs of the class as a whole.
Cupcakes will be available for purchase from 12-6 pm at the Pie in the Sky Bucerías location at 202 Heroe de Nacozari with 10% of proceeds to benefit PEACE.
