Celebrate National Dessert Day this weekend at The Dessert Spot
The Dessert Spot at Toffee to Go
Celebrates National Dessert Day by Giving Back
TAMPA, Fla. – October 14th is National Dessert Day and The Dessert Spot at Toffee to Go (3251 W Bay to Bay Blvd) is celebrating the whole weekend Saturday, October 13th from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Sunday, October 14th from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m., by giving 15% of its proceeds to NAMI/Hillsborough!
The Dessert Spot’s General Manager, Courtney Schalk is passionate about raising awareness and helping to fight stigma by holding this fundraiser for NAMI/Hillsborough during Mental Illness Awareness Week, “Mental illness awareness is important to me because I feel like people suffering with these illnesses don’t know how to get help or talk about it because of the negative stigma connected to it. With the help from NAMI/Hillsborough, we can work to bring down the walls of the stigma by sharing our experiences, stories, and truths. It is important to let these people know that they aren’t alone and that they can get the help and support they need.”
The Dessert Spot has a variety of delicious specialty desserts to choose from including cakes, pies, cookies, ice cream, pastries and more! Whatever dessert you choose to enjoy at The Dessert Spot this weekend, it will taste even better knowing you are supporting NAMI/Hillsborough with each treat you purchase!
NAMI/Hillsborough is an affiliate of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) a 501(c)(3) organization of the nation's largest grassroots organization for people with mental illness and their families. Founded in 1979, NAMI has affiliates in every state and in more than 900 local communities across the country. NAMI recognizes that the key concepts of recovery, resiliency and support are essential to improving the wellness and quality of life of all persons affected by mental illness. NAMI members and friends work to fulfill our mission by providing support, education, and advocacy. Our many activities include: public education and information activities, peer education and support, raising awareness and fighting stigma, and state and federal advocacy.
The Dessert Spot’s manager can be made available to preview the event at the store or for an in-house interview.
