La Plume – Keystone College students are hoping members of the college community and local residents can help pick the area’s best cupcakes and raise money to help fight cancer at the same time.

 Students in Associate Professor Brenda Lidy’s events planning class are conducting the inaugural “Cupcake Challenge” on Tuesday, December 10 from 5-7 p.m. in Evans Hall in Hibbard Campus Center.

Keystone students who wish to participate can donate $4 and members of the general public can donate $10 to sample and vote for the best cupcakes submitted by several local entrants. Proceeds will benefit the Northeastern Pennsylvania Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

“We’re really looking forward to hosting this event on December 10 and we hope to get a great turnout from the Keystone campus and the local community as we strive to fight pancreatic cancer,” said Kathleen Jackson, one of the Keystone students planning the event.

Local businesses and individuals who have submitted entries for the contest include: Sweet Lush, Sodexo, Creative Cookie by Jenny, Keystone culinary arts students, local residents Jess Kovalchik and Kathy Baker, and Keystone students Erin Lawless and Tiffany Salmons.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door or in advance by e-mailing Katie Jackson
