Floyd Valley Auxiliary cookie dough sale continues
LE MARS — Get the smell of fresh baked sugar cookies or gingerbread man cookies while supporting a good cause.
Check out the Holiday Cut-Out Cookie Dough sale sponsored by the Floyd Valley Auxiliary.
Sandy LaBahn said sales are going pretty good for the frozen cookie dough.
“People have until Dec. 2 to put in their order,” she said.
All orders must be prepaid with checks made payable to Floyd Valley Auxiliary.
The sale offers two choices of cookies.
One is a box of three dozen frozen sugar cut-out cookies per box, and feature snowmen, stars and Christmas trees.
The other is a box of 16 frozen gingerbread man cookies.
Each box sells for $17.
“Order forms can be obtained at the Gift Shop at Floyd Valley Healthcare or they can call me and I will mail them one if they are out of town,” said LaBahn. “I’ve been doing quite a few of them.”
LaBahn may be contacted at 712-539-9584. Order forms and checks may be returned to the Floyd Valley Gift Shop or mailed to LaBahn at 610 Third Ave. S.E., Le Mars.
“The nice part of buying the cookie dough is you don’t have the mess. All you have to do is bake them, frost them if you like, and enjoy. There’s no mess, they’re all pre-cut. They come in snowmen, stars and trees.”
She added, “The gingerbread men are very large cookies. There are 16 of the gingerbread men per box. There are three dozen of the cutout sugar cookies per box. And each box sells for $17.”
“They keep very, very well. They come frozen, and they stay that way until you decide to bake them,” LaBahn said. “I have saved some of the stars for the 4th of July or different events. You don’t have to use them all at Christmas time.”
The frozen cookie dough will be available for pick up at the auxiliary’s annual Goodie Sale, set this year for Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 2 to 6 p.m.
To pick up the cookie dough, go in the west entrance at the hospital, the clinic entrance, and the cookie dough will be right by the Floyd Valley Gift Shop.
“We will be there distributing the goodies, the pre-ordered cookies and the pre-ordered candy. It’s a one-stop shop,” she said.
She added, the gift shop will be open that day as well.
Teri Pauling, gift shop manager, said they will offer a special of 20 percent off one item in the gift shop, excluding handmade items such as tea towels and baby blankets.
“We will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.,” Pauling said.
The annual Goodie Sale features a variety of homemade cookies and candies, along with craft items.
All proceeds help with the purchase of needed items in the hospital, LaBahn said.
