Letter: Highest Sort of Compliment

To the Editor:

I would like to extend a special thank you to Alpha Phi at Dartmouth for its generous effort in organizing the recent Cupcake Warz event to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth.

Not only was it a very delicious fundraising event — a great sugar high — it was impressive in size and scope. I would guess that there were some 30 contestants, men and women, who vied for top honors. In my conversations with several of them, I was impressed with their passion and their skills at crafting special cupcakes. I’m just sorry I couldn’t try all of them!

As a development officer for CHaD, it is especially gratifying to see this level of effort to support the amazing health care provided to the children of our region. I salute the many individuals and community organizations like Alpha Phi who each year in so many ways pay CHaD the highest compliment by supporting its work.
