Chicago – (March 20, 2016)Celebrate Macaron day in Chicagoand the first day of spring Sunday, March 20th! Macaron day is a day in which area bakeries and pastry shops around the city unite in support of Esperanza Community Services! In honor of the special day Chef Toni Marie Cox of Toni Patisserie and Café will be releasing one of their first seasonal French macarons for the occasion and donating 50 percent of the entire day’s macaron sales to the charitable organization.

Toni will be creating a passion fruit macaron in a warm orange color in honor of Esperanza Community Services a nonprofit organization in Chicago that offers services to children and adults with developmental disabilities. Toni is particularly famous for her macarons, which are sold individually or in beautifully crafted seasonal collections. The French-inspired café also served breakfast and lunch items, coffee, handcrafted sweets, savories, and more.

“We are thrilled to be participating in Macaron Day again this year alongside the other participating bakeries,” says Cox. “Supporting those in need is as much of a passion of mine as is making macarons. I am excited that I can use my expertise to help those children and adults at Esperanza Community Services who need it most.”

Other area bakeries and pastry shops around the city that are uniting for the charitable cause include Alliance Patisserie, La Fournette and Toni Patisserie.
