The amazing Go Bo! Foundation Bake Sale (gobobakesale.com) will return to Fall Fest for the eighth year. Held next to Al Johnson’s on Oct. 18-20, 9 am – 5 pm each day, it will feature donations of more than 8,200 beautifully decorated cookies from 265 cookie artists in the U.S. and around the world.
All proceeds go to the Go Bo! Foundation (gobofoundation.org), which was founded in memory of Bo Johnson, a 12-year-old Sister Bay native who valiantly fought EM/AML but lost his battle Sept. 28, 2012. The foundation raises money to help fund cutting-edge research for cancer and related blood disorders by supporting the MACC Fund, state-of-the-art treatment in a child-friendly environment and families during times of financial need.Last year, the foundation raised more than $35,000, with a cumulative total of $184,000-plus during the first seven years of the bake sale.
