The next time you're munching on a tea cookie from Gateaux, our Best Bakery of 2001, you can take pride in the fact that a few of your dollars are going to a good cause. This year, Gateaux is giving 10 percent of all tea cookie sales to a different charity every month.
"We decided to allocate our donations this way in honor of our tenth anniversary," explains assistant manager Rachel Wille. "With this we are able to give back to the community that has been so generous to us over the years, and many of the charities hold special meaning to our staff."
The charities for the rest of the year:
April: Project Angel Heart
May: Concerts for Kids
June: Work Options for Women
July: Jack and Jill
August: Catholic Charities
September: Serenity School for Autism
October: Breast Cancer Research
December: Denver Hospice
Gateaux is located at 1160 North Speer Boulevard; call the bakery at 303-376-0070.
