Cake Walk

Helen's Birthday Surprise!

You have to see Helen's reaction when Sparkt showed up with a surprise birthday cake. Even more amazing is her story of survival and the friend who nominated her.

It feels good to deliver good news and today it was especially sweet. The first edition of the Sparkt Cake Walk took us to the North Hills of Pittsburgh where we met Helen McElhaney for a birthday surprise. Helen's dear friend Janet Guardino nominated her to receive a special cake from our friends at Oakmont Bakery.

Helen had no idea we were coming, let alone with something this fabulous from Marc Serrao and his team of bakery geniuses. When we asked Janet why Helen deserved to be nominated here's what she told wrote:

" I have a friend who has had many obstacles to overcome and has continued to do so with a positive attitude. Several months ago she was diagnosed with two different types of cancer." - Janet Guardino

Here's the big reveal from Marty Griffin as it played out live this morning in Ross Township:

Wow! What an amazing group of people we're blessed to meet and honor with a Sparkt Cake Walk. Special thanks to Mark Serrao and his team at Oakmont Bakery.
