MUSCATINE – After proving to be a success for not one but two years in a row, the Pilot Club of Muscatine will once again be offering some tasty frosted cupcakes to the community – and all for a good cause!
From Monday, August 15 through Friday, September 2, the Pilot Club of Muscatine will be accepting orders for its Scratch Cupcake fundraiser.
“We’re excited to be bringing this fundraiser back,” Pat Castle, one of the members who is helping lead the fundraiser, said. “Obviously the cupcakes have always been a good seller for us and have been a wonderful way for us to raise money to support our community projects.”
Much like previous years, the fundraiser is expected to include plenty of yummy favors and toppings that everyone is sure to love thanks to there being eight different types of cupcake six-packs that will be offered through the fundraiser courtesy of Scratch Bakery. While fans don’t have to worry about missing out on their favorite classic flavors, they will also have the opportunity to try new flavors – such as the candy-filled “Steve Urkel Cupcake”.

During the first year of running the fundraiser, the Pilot Club managed raise over $1,800 despite the pandemic slowing things down at the time, with many commenting how much they enjoyed the sweet treats. Since then, the fundraiser has become a favorite of both the Pilot Club’s members and those who support the Pilot Club. For this year’s fundraiser, Castle said that the Club hopes to raise at least $1,500.
As for what the money raised will be going towards, one of the main goals in mind is the purchasing of replacement supplies for the local “Riding for Success”, which helps children with special needs through therapeutic riding sessions.
Other projects and programs partially funded through the annual cupcake sale include Special Olympics of Muscatine, Mississippi Bend Trykes and the upkeep and landscaping of Harmony House, programs that promote brain injury education, and support groups for senior citizens and those with special needs. These programs are estimated to cost the Pilot Club around $8,000-$10,000, making fundraisers such as the annual Scratch Cupcake fundraiser all the more important.
