Nashville, TN (June 13, 2011)— Nashville-based cupcake destination, The Cupcake Collection, is hitting the road with the Cupcakes for College bus tour.  The bakery on wheels will visit five cities between Tuesday June 14 and Tuesday June 21 to benefit four bakery employees heading to college.

The yellow Cupcake Bus will make its first stop in Atlanta and then on to Charlotte, Raleigh, DC, and New York before it arrives back in Nashville Wednesday June 22.  Each $2.00 cupcake that is purchased will contribute to the room and board, tuition, and other incidentals for Justin London and Dillon Francois who will be attending Xavier University, Kevin Brandon who will attend Tennessee State University, and Brandon Tansil heading to Morehouse University.  Their goal is to raise $15,000.

Originally, the idea was for the boys to celebrate their high school graduation but the plan quickly changed as the wheels began turning and became the Cupcake for Colleges tour.  The Cupcake Collection who believes strongly in education and has a scholarship fund saw this as an opportunity to generate the money needed to go into their first college year debt free.

Facebook had a hand in picking the tour’s destination.  They posted a question as simple as “Where would you like to see the Cupcake Bus?” and in less than an hour more than 200 cupcake fans reached out with their respective suggestions.

The Cupcakes for College tour will convene on Wednesday June 22 as the bus makes its way back into Nashville.  The following week the student’s will be preparing for early enrollment and will begin yet another journey.

This is just the first leg of the tour and there are plans to take the bus to the West Coast in July.
