It Pays to Pie: Local Bakery and Contractor Raise Money for Family in Need

Bake Shop Bakes and S&C Contracting donate $1500 from Pie Day celebration to a local family

Every year on March 14th, Tyrone’s Bake Shop Bakes stocks up on their famous pies to celebrate “Pie” Day, a holiday whose date aligns with the digits of the mathematical symbol pi.

The local bakery has made this day a notable tradition in town, taking advantage of its popularity to do good in the community.

For the past few Pie Days, Bake Shop Bakes has chosen a charitable cause to donate a portion of the day’s profits. Two dollars from each pie sold during Pie Day are put aside to donate in addition to any pre-orders received before the 14th.

This year they had help with their fundraiser from co-sponsors S & C Contracting, who matched the money raised by Bake Shop Bakes.

For their 2024 event, Bake Shop Bakes owners Andy and Brittany Hoover selected 10-month-old Hazleigh Moore, who has been battling Tetralogy of Fallot with Absent Pulmonary Valve, Tracheomalacia, and Bronchomalcia since her birth in May of 2023.

Hazleigh had open heart surgery only a month after birth and has been experiencing many health complications since. Her conditions have caused her to be in and out of the hospital, needing to undergo cardiac, respiratory, and neurologic surgeries and treatments regularly.

She has also developed many secondary issues, such as blood clotting and fluid build-up caused by compression from her pulmonary arteries.

Hazleigh and her parents, Tyrone Area High School alums Trenton Moore and Rachel Replogle, spent the first six and a half months of her life under nonstop professional care.

Though she is home now with her family, Hazleigh remains on a ventilator through her tracheostomy. She works with physical, occupational, and speech therapy resources daily to help with the developmental delays resulting from her conditions.

From the sale of 170 pies, Bake Shop Bakes raised over $300. The business added another $100, which their fundraising partner, S&C Contracting, generously doubled.

Along with the profit from the pie sale, the Tyrone Community also gave an additional $700 in donations for the family, bringing the day’s total to $1500 raised.

You guys are awesome for stepping up and supporting this young family. Please keep them in your prayers.

— Andy Hoover

This total was happily given to the family and their organization, Hearts for Hazleigh, to help with medical and living expenses.

Andy Hoover of Bake Shop Bakes would like to thank anyone who contributed to the day’s earnings, noting the continuous support and sense of community that Tyrone locals provide.

“You guys are awesome for stepping up and supporting this young family. Please keep them in your prayers,” Hoover said.

The neverending camaraderie and selflessness shown by the town of Tyrone allow for causes such as Hazleigh’s to be given proper attention and care. Bake Shop Bakes, S&C Contracting, and everyone involved in the event extend their gratitude to those who helped bring success to this year’s Pie Day.
