On August 6, 2015,®’s founder, Rose Guccione, applied for and received a Street Performer’s license.  (Yes… it’s a thing here in the Windy City!)  Now, empowered with a license to perform, she hit the streets today and sang from the corner of Lasalle & Adams near a food truck called Cupcakes for Courage.  Not only are their cupcakes delicious, but their story is truly one of love, courage, triumph, and philanthropy.  Ten percent of their proceeds – a tithe, if you will – go to support two charities:  Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Ride Janie Ride Foundation.

An added bonus today was that a friend with whom Rose worked attended the performance, graciously agreed to record it, and bought a cupcake.  Thank you Gilda!

You may have noticed the green garb… the food truck’s name is “The Green Machine” so I wanted to match.  Follow its delicious schedule at The Green Machine.

Eat every cupcake.
Lick all its cream.
The sisters Pekarik
dare with love to dream.

Eat every cupcake,
and every crumb.
Life is to be savored
’cause cancer is dumb.

The cupcake you buy
was made with lots of love.
Born of courage and strength
miracles from above.
