Clarencedale Cake hosts fundraiser to benefit Shasteen family

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - A valley bakery is cooking up a fundraiser to benefit the family of a Salem woman who lost her life.

Clarencedale Cake Bakery in Boardman will donate all of its cupcake profits from this Thursday to the family of Samantha Shasteen, a former bakery employee.

"We feel we really want to help them out. We realize they are probably going to get some expenses. Sam had a young daughter who is four. We wanted to put money toward her and the family to use at their discretion," says Ellen Harvischak of Clarencedale Cake.

Shasteen's former boyfriend faces murder charges in her death. She left behind a four-year-old daughter, Lydia.

Clarencedale is located across from Wal-Mart in Boardman and will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday.

They sell many varieties of gourmet cupcakes.
