Kupkakes for Kris Koffeehouse



(MECHANICSBURG, Pa.) – Cupcakes without icing are nothing, just like this coffeehouse would be without you!  Friday, Nov. 4, local residents can have their “kupkake” and eat it, too. Kupkakes for Kris will host its second annual benefit “koffeehouse” at West Shore Evangelical Free Church to support the lives of families affected by cancer.  Kicking off at 6:30 p.m., the coffeehouse will feature food, beverages, and five local bands and artists.

The entertainment lineup will include local favorites:

  • Calling Out Closer – a national touring Reading, Pa.-based alternative/indie rock band
  • Hana Elyse— a senior Messiah College student who captivates audiences with her ethereal sound
  • Darry Miller & the Veil— a Lancaster County- based alternative band with an indie flair
  • Alex Brubaker—a well-known Central Pa. artist who plays a “post-percussive fingerstyle” genre
  • Story of My Life – a two-man acoustic band with its own take on pop music that tries to “break away from the norm”


A cover charge of $10 a person, $25 a family, or $5 with a student ID will include all-you-can-eat “kupkakes” and other assorted bakery items.  An additional donation will provide a number of beverage (more)

support for families impacted by the cost of cancer treatments and related personal expenses.

Last fall, Kupkakes for Kris raised more than $6,000 through its initial event in Hershey, Pa. and its first annual Koffeehouse.  As part of an ongoing effort to help cancer fighters, the Messiah College Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), with the assistance of many generous local businesses, will host the second annual Koffeehouse on Nov. 4 to bring comfort, one kupkake at a time.


About Kupkakes for Kris

Kupkakes for Kris, a nonprofit organization conceived in honor of Central Pennsylvania public relations professional and cancer fighter Kris Green, exists to provide affected families comfort and financial assistance for cancer treatment and personal needs.  Kupkakes for Kris began when Kris Green learned she had stage IV lung cancer in January 2010.  Green fought her diagnosis with strength, courage, and spirited determination until her passing in October 2010.  “Kupkake” events across the nation seek to create a living legacy of sweet support for other cancer patients.  For more information, visit www.kupkakesforkris.org or contact Elisabeth Warren at ew1232@messiah.edu or Tiffany Mills at tm1265@messiah.edu.
