“Turning Passion into Profit”

Scribe: Traci Tenhulzen Introduced by: Bob Holert

Margo spend 20 years out of college cleaning for executives and residential.  She loved her cleaning service but realized that God would take her into a new, wonderful direction.  Her husband and Margo have 4 adopted children and shared her precious stories about how they came into their lives.

All 4 children work in the company.

Margo started to make cupcakes for children that may not have had a birthday cake or celebration.   Then she started to make cupcakes for children that could not have a birthday cake.  She was having more requests for cupcakes for children in need.  2009, her business was born.  On opening day 2000 cupcakes were sold.

Small business is hard but when you have a passion the turns into a reality, you are a success!

Pinkabella Cupcakes – Turning passion into profit.  Now 5 stores including our own Bellevue Square and Redmond Town Center!

Let Them Eat Cake! Margo brought in some samples…yum!

All in for Autism 5K/10K Run/Walk – April 23rd, 2017

Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club Announces Their All in for Autism 5K/10K Walk/Run

Fundraiser Event  •   Organized by Fundraising: Bellevue 10K Run/Walk
By Kaj Pedersen

Bellevue, WA. – January 21, 2017 – On April 23, the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club (BBRC) will be hosting their All in for Autism annual 5K/10K Walk/Run on a route that takes participants through Bellevue’s streets.  In its eleventh year, this event has become Bellevue’s premier running event that caters for enthusiasts and families alike.  Funds raised from this event go to: Kindering, as well as other identified agencies, plus Rotary projects that benefit children and families locally and internationally.

The All in for Autism 5K/10K Run/Walk is a family event brought to you by the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club (BBRC) to raise awareness for Autism and other related disorders. The All In for Autism event is put on to show support for families and/or caregivers, affected by this growing neurological condition, and to thank those in our community who work to provide support and success to these individuals, in the hopes of expanding the circle of care. 1 in 68 individuals are affected by autism, and show impairment in the following areas: communication, repetitive patterns of behavior and social skills.

The event will offer a challenging 10K (6.22 miles) course, as well as a 5K (3.31 miles) course for the whole family. There is also a non-competitive half-mile Kids’ Dash open to all kids 10 and under.  On race day, participants are invited to visit the Race Village to visit event sponsor booths and vendor exhibits after the event for the post-race party.

“Bellevue Breakfast Rotary’s commitment to the All in for Autism event allows our club to play its part in recognizing the sterling work carried out by families and caregivers who support those individuals affected by Autism. Our goal is to expand the circle of care through awareness and we call on the community to support us on April 23rd” said Mike Ralph, President of the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club.

The BBRC membership is dedicated to “service above self” and we derive much toward this goal through the contributions of our dynamic membership and local businesses.  Together, let’s make a difference! If you are a runner, volunteer, and/or sponsor, sign up today and show your commitment!  Please go to our website www.AllinforAutism.org for more information.
