Christina Perez and Maria Bastida
Christina Perez and Maria Bastida were all smiles last Friday after hearing the doorbell at Christina’s house ringing by 7:30 a.m. A number of their most faithful customers showed up for sweets to have with their morning coffee. The two girls raised $411 for the Great American Bake Sale. The money will be used by the organization to help feed hungry children in the U.S. The girls had a variety of baked goods out for their customers including cookies, brownies, cereal treats and banana nut bread. Kids in the neighborhood even rode up on their bicycles to make purchases. Maria said the experience was fun and Christina thanked supporters like the Domingo Live show on Channel 3 in Corpus Christi and the Beeville Bee-Picayune for promoting the sale.
