The SPCA and Humane Society is hoping for a sweet gesture in February.

The annual National Cupcake Day returns on Feb. 29, when participants are tasked with planning a cupcake party at work, home or school to help raise funds for animals in need.

Cupcakes are served in exchange for donations to the participants preferred charity.

Last year, the event raised about $150,000 in B.C. Those who registered before Jan. 31 and raised $50 are now entered in a draw to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

“It’s so wonderful to see this initiative grow each year, with so many British Columbians committing to ‘bake a difference’ for animals in need,” said BC SPCA CEO Craig Daniell.
