Press Release: Recent College Graduate Bakes 20,000 Cookies for Fundraiser

Pressley Ridge Wild and Roaring Ice Cream AdventurePITTSBURGH – Ginger Fisher, a 2006 graduate of Kenyon College baked 20,000 cookies over four weeks for the Pressley Ridge Wild and Roaring Ice Cream Adventure fundraiser. A fifth generation Pressley Ridge Family Volunteer, Fisher helped develop the unique cookies created by the event’s corporate sponsors, then baked the cookie creations for the Saturday, August 26 event.

Fisher, daughter of Linda Crawford Fisher and the late Benjamin Fisher, Jr., is a fifth generation member of her family to volunteer her time and efforts to help troubled children at Pressley Ridge. Her late father served on the board of directors, her great-great-grandmother Margaret Smith Aiken joined the board in 1885, followed by her daughter Margaret Aiken Fisher and then Lilian Hall Fisher, Ginger’s grandmother, who is now an honorary board member.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for me to continue the legacy of my father and family”, stated Fisher. “My father and I attended the event annually, so it just made sense for me to volunteer this summer. I was thrilled to be able to contribute in a way that complemented my own interest in baking.”

Fisher majored in English at Kenyon College. Fisher aspires to attend the not-for-profit
Culinary Institute of America located in New York to start a career in baking and pastry arts. Her culinary experiences at Pressley Ridge this summer have strengthened her resolve to reach her goal and provided her with important work experience in a professional kitchen.
