Three local teens brought — and completely sold — a stock of their famous Everything Cookies to the first Cheers St. Helena of 2011.
At the community event, which takes place once a month from May to October and celebrates the shops and restaurants of main street, Napa Valley wines, and local music and other entertainment, hundreds of people gather in downtown St. Helena.
Ene, Julian, and Freddy were busy at the Everything Cookie table on Hunt Street, where they sold the entirety of their stock of cookies (around five dozen).
The Everything Cookie Project, which is led by teams of youth bakers, is headed up by Napa Valley Youth Advocacy Center board member Tami McDonald. Since Tami was out of town, Angwin volunteer Shaina Hasso led the Thursday baking session. The three boys baked fresh Everything Cookies, as they do each week. Another NVYAC board member, Barry Low, took the boys to St. Helena on Friday, where they set up their table with info about the cookies and NVYAC, tasting samples, and a basketful of cookies. The boys manned the table, talked with people who stopped by the table and advertised the cookies to passersby, kept the samples supplied, and made the sales.
