As Katy Herbach watched those in the Ellicottville community organize events to assist local families, she knew she wanted to do help too. After collaborating with friends and family, Herbach is kicking off her holiday season fundraising effort on Dec. 1 during the Christmas Stroll in Ellicottville, taking place from 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
Herbach is hoping to entice donors to stop at Katy’s Café & Cake Creations on Washington Street with cash donations for the Rotary Club’s Family Support for Ellicottville fund, nonperishable food items for the Ellicottville Food Pantry and toys for Santa’s Workshop in exchange for a bag of Katy’s Cookies for Compassion – her famous, home-baked holiday cookies.
On Saturday, Dec. 1, Katy’s Café will be “dressed up” for the holidays with the help of Bob McCarthy. Herbach and her holiday helpers invite everyone to stop in from 5–8 p.m. to say hello to Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will be on hand to accept donations.
Katy’s Café & Cake Creations will serve as an ongoing community collection site until Dec. 20. If you have questions, please call Katy at (716) 699-8860 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
