You Inspire Me! Cookies Program
Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer (WOKC) founder Cindy Brinker Simmons has known Becky Nelson, the owner of Le Gourmet Valet and Le Gourmet Baking, since 2012. Cindy was hosting an annual dinner party that year and was looking for a caterer. She hired Becky, whom she had met through a mutual friend, and not only was the dinner party a great success but a deep, enduring friendship began. Having a cause to embrace had been a heartfelt pursuit of Becky’s for some time so collaborating with Cindy to support WOKC’s relentless mission to eradicate pediatric cancer and to increase survival rates for the 43 children who are diagnosed with cancer each day in the U.S. provided Becky with that opportunity.
Becky and Cindy created the “You Inspire Me!” personalized cookie collection, which launched in September 2020 as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month but will continue indefinitely. WOKC patients are courageous young warriors, and the delicious designer shortbread cookie collection will proudly honor these inspirational kids with cancer in a unique and special way while sending a message to other deserving heroes we all have who encourage us and make a difference in our lives.
Each tin of “You Inspire Me!” cookies will have 9 personalized cookies, chosen from a list of 30 attributes, and three “You Inspire Me!” cookies in the middle. WOKC receives 40% of the gross profit from every tin sold. Le Gourmet Baking is known for its delicious, customized shortbread cookies and has been featured multiple times in the Neiman-Marcus gourmet Christmas catalogue. We hope you can taste the love that has gone into these exceptional cookies. Many thanks for recognizing excellence in the lives of others by sending these cookies to inspiring recipients and, in doing so, supporting the crusade against pediatric cancer!
