Magnolia Bakery, the iconic New York bakery and café, has once again pledged its support to a number of local charitable efforts, including the Qatar Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a recent fundraiser which was organized by SFS-Q, along with its ongoing donations to Educate A Child, a program of Education Above All. Thanks to the generosity of Magnolia Bakery’s local patrons at its shop at Dar Al Salam Mall, almost 400 cupcakes were sold throughout October while 5,000 QR worth of baked goods were sold at the SFS-Q fundraiser.


As in previous years, Magnolia Bakery is offering its special pink ribbon cupcake, available in chocolate or vanilla with vanilla buttercream and an edible pink ribbon for 17 QR during the month of October, as part of their community initiative to support Qatar’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. Magnolia Bakery has confirmed that 2 QR from each pink ribbon cupcake sold will be donated directly to the Qatar Cancer Society.


Additionally, Magnolia Bakery donated a dessert table with 5,000 QR worth of freshly baked goods and included cupcakes, brownies and cookies, to the stand at the SFS-Q fundraiser which was held on Tuesday evening, October 20 at the SFS-Q building in Education City, Qatar Foundation. The donation of baked goods was part of a larger fundraiser that was organized by the University, with all of the funds raised going directly to the Qatar Cancer Society.

Magnolia Bakery has continued to work closely with the Qatar Cancer Society to raise awareness of breast cancer among all residents of Qatar, particularly among women, and to use this increased awareness to aid in the prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

“At Magnolia Bakery, we believe that it is vital to give back to the local community. Throughout the year, we work to identify opportunities to support charitable organizations of all sizes, including local schools and hospitals,” said Steve Abrams, CEO. “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our patrons for their ongoing support to the Qatar Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Educate A Child initiative.”

Earlier in the year, Magnolia Bakery had the privilege of partnering with the prestigious not-for-profit initiative, Educate a Child, a program of Education Above All, a global initiative launched by Her Highness, Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of Qatar, which aims to significantly reduce the numbers of children worldwide who are missing out on their right to education. The partnership, which began in August 2015 and will run for six months, will see Magnolia Bakery create special cupcakes for Education Above All with unique designs on them and Magnolia Bakery will also donate 4 QR for every cupcake sold to this unique initiative.

Throughout its nearly 20-year history, Magnolia Bakery has been committed to serving its local community through a variety of charitable outreach and donations. In the past several years alone, Magnolia Bakery has donated to more than 850 charities on a regional, national and international level. At the heart of Magnolia Bakery’s philanthropic efforts is the notion that charity begins at home and then extends to the global community.
