Pupcakes Raise $1,000

— Rising Saint Stephens Saint Agnes School 7th graders Julia Burke and Virginia Kane caught the baking bug earlier this summer and decided to take it a step further. Baking up dozens of pupcakes, the girls set out to sell the cakes to raise money for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. The Olde Towne School for Dogs agreed to host the stand outside their shop at Oronoco and N. St. Asaph streets on Aug. 21. For five days the girls sold the decorated pupcakes. Their personal goal was $500. They succeeded in doubling that in sales and public donations for the local shelter.
