Who doesn’t love a sweet way to raise money for a good cause? The West Lafayette community planned several fundraisers to support adding a K-9 officer to the police department including a Valentine’s Day Puppy Love bake sale at Hickory Flats Golf Course.

“The bake sale started at 8 a.m. and we were sold out by 1 p.m.,” said Coordinator Nikia Campbell. “We had several donations from local bakers and bakeries around town.”
Daily Bread, Makaya McKnight, a local mom made 48 cupcakes, Mary Lou Schwartz, a school bus driver made five or six dozen cookies, Katie Hultz from Katie Bakes and Brittany Powell with Blissful Bites donated baked goods, Jessi Shrock, Roberta Cramer, Ava Kulbacki, and Kaycee Newell contributed as well.
“There were a lot of bakers who care about their community,” Campbell said. “This was truly a community project.”
Tim Tubbs was helping with t-shirt sales at the bake sale. Today was the last day to order he said.
“My wife Jessie was the coordinator that brought it all together but it’s been a big community project,” he said. “We are selling raffle tickets for half of a hog. Jason Blevens donated the hog and got the processing donated. There will be two winners. Raffle tickets will be on sale until the 27th of this month.”
Christina Alan is handling the silent auction which has raised more than $5,000 so far. There are 25 runners registered for a 5-K run at this time. Anyone interested in participating in the run can contact Jessie Tubbs on her Facebook page.
