The June 3, 2010 Naples Sunset Rotary Meeting featured speaker was Maria Wassef, Executive Director of Marias Cupcakes for the Homeless. Maria was introduced by Naples Sunset Rotary member Adoni Kokkinos. Maria explained that she started this project one year and three months ago and it has grown to serving birthday cupcakes to over 63 homeless shelters located throughout the United States with 14 volunteers. The tremendous growth has absolutely amazed Maria and now she is looking to help even more homeless by supplying more and more birthday cupcakes. This is truly a great project that is helping those who truly need help during this time of our economy. Many questions were asked and our Naples Sunset Rotary was truly impressed both with her original idea and her contstant passion to obtain the goals to help the less fortunate!
