KANEVILLE – For the third year, Hill's Country Store will be participating in the Great Purple Cupcake Project to support Epilepsy Awareness. The store is at 2S133 Harter Road, Kaneville.

The project will take place from Sunday, March 22, through Sunday, March 29. The store – also known as The Purple Store – will be selling chocolate or vanilla cupcakes with purple frosting and purple cupcake shaped sugar cookies for $1 each. Donors can get their name on paper purple cupcakes that will be displayed around the store with their name and contribution. Proceeds from the paper cupcakes go to the Anita Kaufmann Foundation for Epilepsy Awareness. There also will be a coloring contest for children. The winner will receive a purple basket full of goodies and one dozen purple cupcakes. Coloring sheets are available at the store.

On Thursday, March 26, patrons are urged to wear purple in support of epilepsy as it is Purple Day. Like Hill's Country Store on Facebook to get updates on the project and to see pictures. To place an order or for information, call the store at 630-557-2228.
