St. Clement Catholic shortcake sales benefit community

PLANT CITY St. Clement Catholic Church recently shared some of the proceeds of its shortcake sales at the Florida Strawberry Festival.

The church sold nearly 94,000 shortcakes in the 11-day festival that wrapped in March 9. Most of the profits went to help the church’s ministries and missions but a total of $2,000 was donated to other charitable work.

The United Food Bank of Plant City was given $1,500, and the Commotion in Motion team at Plant City’s Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society was awarded $500. The Relay for Life contribution was given in memory of Barbara Caccamisi, a longtime church shortcake booth coordinator who died in 2012 after a battle with cancer.

The church also thanked its supporters, including the Gutierrez Family Farms, Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce, Sunshine State Federal Savings, Keel and Curley Winery and Sweetbay/Winn-Dixie.
