2019 GTHS National Cupcake Day


Eddie, the famous bowtie wearing cat from Wasaga Beach, is this year’s “Spokescat” for GTHS Cupcake Day


2019 National Cupcake Day is on Monday, February 25th , and we can’t wait to celebrate with you.

There are so many different ways that you can get involved!

Host a Cupcake Day Party

Get your colleagues, schoolmates or friends & family together and throw a party! What does that look like? It’s up to you! But here’s an example:

Step 1: Choose a Date – Although Cupcake Day is on Monday, February 25th, if a better date works for you, no problem!
Step 2: Register Online at www.nationalcupcakeday.ca
Step 3: Invite everyone you know to your Cupcake Day Party – Download these posters and post at your regular stompin’ grounds (with permission, of course)! For a full host kit, log in to your personal fundraising page or visit the Ontario SPCA website.
Step 4: Bake! Bake! Bake! – No need to do this solo – recruit your kitchen-savvy friends to help
Step 5: Party on! Sell your cupcakes at your party – you can choose the price or simply ask supporters to donate an amount of their choosing – it’s up to you! Have other ideas on how to raise money at your party? Go for it!

Is baking not your forte? NO PROBLEM! Take a page from Alyssa’s book! Alyssa and her mom, Deborah, wanted to get out of their aprons and into their dancing shoes! Instead of throwing a traditional Cupcake Day Party, they threw a Zumba Fitness Party at their local community centre – complete with raffle prizes, 50/50 and a silent auction and raised $800! WAY TO GO!!!  Don’t be afraid to think outside the box if you’re not a fan of baking! Here is Alyssa and her friends at her Party and Alyssa with her beloved Mr. Cat.


DONATE: Find a registered participant HERE and donate to their own personal fundraising page!
