Elva Valentine, owner of Valentine’s Jewelry, and Elaine Weaver, owner of the Olde House Café, recently conducted a cupcake and gemstone fundraiser to benefit the Back Mountain Food Pantry. Each decorated cupcake from the Olde House Café was adorned with a foil wrapped heart-shaped decoration which contained a gemstone from Valentine’s. Each cupcake sold for $10 and a total of $2,250 was raised and donated to the pantry to fight hunger in our community. The local business owners recently stopped by the Back Mountain Food Pantry for a tour of the facility and to present their check to two food pantry board members.
