For 11-year-old Madison Meeks, baking isn’t just about the cookies and cupcakes; its about raising money for a good cause.

Madison is in her second year of “Cookies for CASA,” where she sells baked goods to raise money and awareness for CASA for Children of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.

This past weekend, Madison put her baked goods to the test when she set up shop for her hometown of Port Republic’s Community Day.

There she sold an array of baked goods including cupcakes, lemon tarts, brownies and cookies. In all she raised $282.00 for CASA! All the goods where handmade by Madison and her friends.

When asked why she wanted to do this Madison replied, “Because I like to cook and I really wanted to do this for a good cause.”

Thank you Madison for donating your time and good cooking to CASA! To view photos of the event click here.
