Paul Simon concert benefits CURE

Dog Tag Bakery was honored to host the legendary Paul Simon recently for a private concert to benefit CURE: Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy.

CURE is the leading nongovernmental agency fully committed to funding research in epilepsy. The organization was founded by Susan Axelrod and a small group of parents of children with epilepsy who were frustrated with their inability to protect their children from seizures and the side effects of medications. Unwilling to sit back, they joined forces to spearhead the search for a cure.

Thank you to everyone who came out for a wonderful evening to support two of my favorite causes!

DoD: Disabled Veterans Use Baking to Work Through PTSD Symptoms

The U.S. Department of Defense featured the Dog Tag Inc. program as part of its Veteran’s Day coverage:

Smiles and the smells of freshly baked bread, cakes and cookies greet visitors of Dog Tag Bakery here, a place where disabled veterans can learn more than just baking.

Disabled veterans, their spouses and caregivers can participate in a work-study fellowship that will help them as they transition from the military to the civilian workforce, said Kyle Burns, senior program director for the fellowship program at Dog Tag Bakery.

Thank you to DoD for letting others know about Dog Tag Bakery!
