Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe pays tribute today, donating partial proceeds for a very special reason…

Local News

A local bakery celebrates the life of a young boy who lost his battle with cancer.

Today, the ‘Ye Ole Sweet Shoppe’ sold Ninja Turtle cookies in honor of 9-year-old Jax Stone.  Stone passed away in 2014 due to a form of brain cancer.  Ninja Turtles were his favorite cartoon characters.

The owner of the sweet shop, Cheryl Henry, says they picked today to sell the cookies for a special reason. “Today is Jax’s sister’s 18th birthday and they were very close, and we know he’s shining down from Heaven looking upon her, so we wanted to make this a special day for [her] as well.” 

The proceeds from the cookies will go to ‘Prayers From Maria,’ a charity Jax’s family chose.
