Caraluzzi’s Markets Donates 1,700 Gourmet Cupcakes to Danbury Hospital on Its 135th Birthday
BETHEL – Caraluzzi’s Markets received an order from Nuvance Health for 1,700 assorted jumbo gourmet cupcakes. The cupcakes were to be given out to every employee on Monday to celebrate the 135th anniversary of Danbury Hospital. Caraluzzi’s greatly appreciated the order, but immediately decided to donate them instead as they were honored for the opportunity to be able to give back to the amazing healthcare workers battling on the frontlines of this pandemic.
Caraluzzi’s bakery coordinator Heather Ramos assembled a team in both their Bethel & Newtown bakery locations to accommodate the large order and quick turnaround. Working with two locations because of the added constraints of social distancing in the workplace was an added challenge she was quick to guide her bakers through.
Each specialty cupcake was prepared, hand decorated and individually packaged by the Caraluzzi’s bakery staff. The cupcakes have gained in popularity, most notably during Connecticut’s period of quarantine, and includes varieties such as salted caramel, cannoli, red velvet, S’mores and brownie cookie dough just to name a few
“We’re especially glad to be able to help out during this crisis and hope our efforts help put a smile on the faces of these heroes in such a difficult time. While it’s been an extremely hectic and stressful time for our own employees, I couldn’t be more proud of their hard work and dedication and willingness to pitch in.” said Mark Caraluzzi, President and CEO for Caraluzzi’s Markets.
Started in 1949, family owned and operated for over 69 years, Caraluzzi’s Markets has supermarket locations in Bethel, Wilton, and Newtown CT and wine & spirits superstores in Bethel and Danbury CT. Caraluzzi’s maintains an outstanding level of service, quality, and competitive prices for a pleasing shopping experience that keeps customers coming back. For more information go to Caraluzzis.com.
