The first Cookies for Kids’ Cancer bake sale was held in December 2007, when the mom of a young child with cancer decided to have an enormous bake sale where she and others would sell 96,000 cookies to raise money to help fund a pediatric cancer treatment in development. With the help of more than 250 volunteers, all 96,000 cookies were baked and sold in just three weeks.

The bake sale raised more than $400,000. From the support the first bake sale received, the idea to create an organization for people to hold their own bake sales came to life with the creation of a national organization.
