Purple cupcakes help raise awareness for Epilepsy


Local bakeries and culinary students donating purple-themed cupcakes for the 4th annual ‘Purple Cupcakes for Epilepsy Awareness’ event at Schenectady County Community College.

It was started by Stephen Piorkowski, a baker who lives with Epilepsy and graduate of the college.

The event raises funds for a scholarship Stephen set up that benefits students at the college whose lives have been affected by epilepsy – including those living with the seizure disorder, their family members, spouses, caregivers.

To reach more students on campus, Stephen set up 3 different tabling areas for cupcakes.
