FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 20, 2018
Brighton, MI – Independence Village Senior Living along with their sister company, StoryPoint, are excited to announce their company-wide, eight-week long Cookie Madness initiative. All of their senior living communities will compete head to head in a friendly, March Madness bracket inspired competition to find the “greatest cookie in the cosmos.”
Through decades of serving seniors, Independence Village and StoryPoint have found that food facilitates connections between people. With this in mind, their company began discussing the idea of having a “signature” dessert for their Friendly Fork Food Truck. The company knew that they wanted the dessert to be a cookie because it’s a crowd pleaser that everyone can relate to. They decided to utilize the best cookie makers around: their residents.
Independence Village and StoryPoint residents will be creating their favorite recipes with each community’s Executive Chef for the ultimate bake-off. The company wants to extend involvement to their partners, community leaders and all cookie lovers in the journey to find the greatest cookie. Five rounds of events will take place, with each round producing thousands of cookies. The final event, also known as the National Cookie Madness Championship, will be held on Saturday, April 28th, from 1 PM – 4 PM at Skyline High School in Ann Arbor.
Independence Village and StoryPoint are privileged to show appreciation to the community, especially through the talents of the residents they serve.
