John Looker will tell you that the entire Pelotonia community has inspired him. What he won’t tell you is that he has inspired the entire Pelotonia community. One person in particular whom John has influenced is a 14-year old pastry chef-in-the-making, Gracie Hoffman. Like a true fearless fundraiser, Gracie bakes and sells mouth-watering cupcakes to reach her fundraising minimum, and she has even committed to a High Roller status for the second year in a row. You can read more about Gracie’s cupcakes in this 2012 blog post.
Once we learned about Gracie’s fundraising efforts, we knew she and John would hit it off because of their common love for baking. They have since formed a close friendship. Gracie will be hosting her own “Love for Looker” bake sale in Middleport, Ohio, this Thursday, February 14. (In case you missed the details of our Love for Looker Valentine’s Day celebration, check out this blog post.)
