Fluffy Thoughts Cakes will host baseball superstar Gio Gonzalez of the Washington Nationals for a charity autograph event on Saturday, May 11th from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in McLean, Virginia. Those who purchase one dozen of Fluffy Thoughts beautifully designed, and equally delicious, cupcakes will receive an autograph. Extra autographs will be available for a $50 donation. Additionally, autographed and non-autographed photos, baseballs, and jerseys will be available for purchase on-site the day of event. All proceeds from the event will benefit The G.I.O Foundation. Nationals fans and cupcake lovers alike should plan to arrive at 9:30 a.m. as only 150 autographs will be signed.
WHY: The G.I.O Foundation, created by professional baseball player Gio Gonzalez, is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to children battling life challenging health illnesses. The foundation is focused on “Giving Individuals Opportunities” to improve their health and well-being. Fluffy Thoughts Cakes is opening a kiosk at Nationals Park, the official site for the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team. The kiosk will open in May. Owner Laura Stuckey follows sports closely and has been a Nats fan since their inception. She is excited to be a part of “Natitude!” More information about the Gio Gonzalez Foundation can be found at: www.giofoundation.org.
