We're so elated to say that we're back — baking buttery shortbread + raising money for the second year of Shortgirl Shortbread. Last year, we raised over $2,300 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of my dad, Jim Saraco. This year, we hope to exceed last year's progress.
The holidays are a special time where we connect with people we love from the heart. Christmas 2016 was my family's first holiday without the man who had biggest heart ever - my dad. To celebrate his memory, we wanted to keep the hearts of others healthy by baking his favourite holiday treat - buttery, homemade shortbread.
When you purchase a dozen of Shortgirl Shortbread, every penny will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada in memory of Dr. Gennaro (Jim) Saraco. This year due to unforeseen circumstances we're baking a limited supply or shortbread but are still committed to collecting cash donations for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Together, we can help fund breakthrough research that will help save and improve the hearts of others — one bite of shortbread at a time.
