Cookies Delivered After Anonymous Payment

A cookie dough fundraiser raised questions with parents who sold orders. They waited weeks for delivery only to discover through Fact Finders that the money had not been sent to the cookie dough maker. But the story has a sweet ending. An anonymous donor paid the $1,300 bill.

Tuesday about a dozen parents delivered cookie dough to friends and co-workers who paid for orders weeks ago. Carliss Miller feared they thought she had kept the money intended to pay for cookie dough. But A former co-worker said, ' Its definitely not her fault."

Instead the head of the organization had called a financial audible, spending the cookie dough dough elsewhere. Delvin Thompson told Fact Finders, 'League fees and insurance had to be paid. I had to buy equipment for all my kids." About 125 players in all."

After a Fact Finders investigation Thompson said an anonymous donor paid Spunkmeyer cookies $1,300. That led to shipment of dozens of cookie dough tubs.

However the experience left Miller with a bad taste about fund raising. The mother of a young player said, "If I don't have the product in hand to deliver when buyers give me the money, I probably won't do fund raising like that again."
