A sweet treat to help a distasteful event

A local business needs your help to help victims and families affected by Monday's explosions.

Krazy Cakes Cafe & Bakery

in Quincy is selling these Boston Cream Cupcakes for $5 each.

The owners will donate $4 of that cost to the

Boston Marathon


"It really hits our heart hard," Krazy Cakes co-owner Amber Martin said. "Even though we're in

Quincy, Illinois

and that happened way up there, there's nothing that we can't do if we just ask the community, 'Hey, let's do something.'"

So far, the business has sold 425 cupcakes, raising around seventeen hundred dollars. They hope to donate a minimum of four thousand dollars.

Tuesday is the last day to participate in this fundraiser.

The cupcakes are available at Krazy Cakes' front counter.

The business also is taking orders for larger quantities.

Those orders will require at least 24 hours notice, so get your order in on Monday!
