Behind the Scenes

Over the last couple of months, the Operations team with the assistance of other volunteers has tackled various projects in order to further improve the policies and procedures of The Cupcake Girls.  This branch works behind the scenes and therefore many may not be aware of the changes that have taken place.  Here’s what we’ve accomplished at a glance: After collaborating with other directors and staff, including individuals in Las Vegas, The Cupcake Girls has implemented a new volunteer application process.  Starting in July, prospective volunteers have been required to fill out and pass a background check as well as complete a volunteer application before receiving an invitation to...


Will Run for Cupcakes - Sweet Run 2015

​ We’re looking for runners (and walkers!) to partner with the Las Vegas team for our annual Sweet Run, happening November 14th and 15th, 2015. What exactly is “The Sweet Run”? Good question! The Sweet run is what we call this fundraiser, which is actually part of the largest race series in the U.S. - The Rock ‘n’ Roll race series. This year is especially exciting because there are even more race options to choose from. You can run or walk a 5k, 10k, half or full marathon. How can I help? We're so glad you asked! You sign up for one of the Las Vegas rock ‘n’ roll races and then set up a fundraiser page to raise money for The Cupcake Girls. It couldn’t be easier! If...


Women Supporting Women- Join us at AVN 2016!

One of the things I love most about The Cupcake Girls is a lot of what we do boils down to women supporting women. We do have male volunteers, male and transgender clients, but 95% of both our volunteers and clients are female. We live in a world where we can see women tearing each other down, whether it be for career choices, differing views on parenting, politics, marriage, etc.  Sometimes it feels the world we live in often revolves around judgment, rather than acceptance, support, and/or encouragement of one another.  Our Cupcake Girls team is filled with women working together to utilize our personal strengths to provide support and resources to people working in the adult industry....

Coffee & Cupcakes Arrives in Portland

For the last few months I have had the privilege of serving as the Chief of Direct Care for The Cupcake Girls Portland.  In that time I’ve met extraordinary individuals from all walks of life working in the adult entertainment industry; some enjoying a successful career, some seeking additional support in varying capacities.  Each time I interact with the clients we connect to community partnerships and resources, I’m grateful to work for an organization that can provide a wide variety of assistance when requested. In February, the Portland branch of CCG acquired an office space, something we’ve been working towards since this non-profit began.  A primary goal for obtaining an...


AVN 2015 – Sharing Our Hearts

Everything of value that we will know in this life comes from our relationships with those around us. There is nothing material that measures against the intangibles of love and friendship. ― R.A. Salvatore Relationships are the foundation upon which we build our lives. When we volunteer, we often start out with the intention of helping others, but surprisingly, we find our own lives changed in the process.  The 2015 AVN Cupcake Suite was just that kind of opportunity for our volunteer team. We welcomed over 400 entertainers into our suite for relaxation, food, and complimentary spa services. While we were there to offer love and support to them, our own lives were altered in the best...


Preparing for the AVN Awards

Our motto at The Cupcake Girls is “Respect, Resources, and Relationships.” Because we always strive to provide our clients with the very best we have to offer, we make training volunteers and staff a high priority.   For the past two weeks, Cupcake Girls Las Vegas has been busy preparing for our biggest event of the year – a relaxation suite at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for the annual AVN awards.  To make this event a success, it takes an army of volunteers, as well as spa & beauty professionals who are willing to donate their time and talents.  To be fully prepared, we have held three recent training sessions: one for new volunteers, one for volunteers moving into more...


New Year's Resolutions

We are a few days into 2015 and the topic of the hour is probably those pesky New Year’s Resolutions. Maybe you haven’t made any yet or maybe you’ve already broken some of yours. The wonderful thing about goals is that you can set them at any time and decide to keep trying tomorrow no matter what setback comes your way. We all need goals to stay motivated and measure our successes (our directors set goals every month!). The Cupcake Girls offer respect, resources, and relationships to adult entertainers in Portland and Las Vegas through every season and situation.  We want to hear about your resolutions for the coming year and how we can work together to achieve those goals.   We...
