Approaching Lady Liberty

amboatride2On Saturday Morning around 6am, when most Americans were still snuggled in bed with visions of fireworks dancing in their heads, our team made their way to Liberty Island to prepare for the historic reopening of the Statue of Liberty’s crown. For those who have never seen a summer sunrise in New York City, the view from the Statue Cruise line was incredible! While we were a bit tired, our team was ready for a fantastic day in honor of America’s birthday.

Upon arrival we prepared our tent and cake display for the reopening ceremony. Our crown display was a hit at the celebration and the ceremony was attended by such dignitaries as Gov. Corzine (D-NJ), Gov. Patterson (D-NY) and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. We even had a chance to meet Ken Salazar, the Secretary of the Interior!

Back at our tent, our team prepared the 3000 cakes that we were handing out that day – a sight not to be missed.

For the hours that followed, we collected thousands of letters in support of soldiers and enjoyed the company of our fellow Americans as they participated in a wonderful 4th of July celebration. Some even stopped to eat our delicious Cookies and Cream Singular Sensation, right there on the spot!

We had an amazing time with everyone and encourage each and everyone to get behind a cause, find something you can dedicate your heart to and make a difference in this world.

We gave away 3000 cakes!
