CENTRAL UNION MISSION HOSTS ANNUAL EVERY MAN’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
February 16, 2011

Washington, D.C. - Central Union Mission will host their 5th annual "Every Man's" Birthday Celebration today at 5PM at their location at 1350 R Street NW.

"No one should be forgotten on their birthday. Through this annual event we hope to provide some of our area's homeless men with not only gifts for their physical well-being but gifts for their spiritual well-being as well," said Executive Director David O. Treadwell. "We are grateful to all our volunteers who work on this day and the other 364 days a year at Central Union Mission to let these men know that they matter and to Occasionally Cake for their generous donation to add some sweetness to the celebration."

The annual event will provide homeless men with dinner and birthday dessert as well as a gift in honor of their birthdays, which often go unnoticed.

Alexandria-based Occasionally Cake and Georgetown's Baked & Wired donated cupcakes for the guests of honor.

"Our mission at Occasionally Cake is to rid the world of bad cake. We hope by producing good cake we can make people's days a little brighter," said Occasionally Cake founder Sabrina Campbell. "We also strive to be good stewards to our area communities and are pleased to contribute our cupcakes to this warm-hearted event. I hope they will be enjoyed."
