While both Caramia and Kevin Murry of Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery were not born here, they consider themselves Washingtonians. At one year old, Kevin arrived in Washington from Massachusetts and grew up on the coast. Caramia moved here with her parents at the age of 5 from California, noting that her stepfather grew up in Seattle.

“One of my favorite activities growing up was summer camp as I loved to explore and hike to learn about our local wildlife and environment,” said Caramia, “I especially loved Camp Waskowitz that my school participated in every year.”

Kevin and Caramia’s favorite outdoor activities are hiking with their lab, Reggie, exploring everything the amazing PNW has to offer, and anything that has to do with water. Golden Gardens is a particularly fond spot filled with memories.

If you happened to stop by Hot Cakes this past April, you would have seen their featured cake of the month, the Forest Cake, with 10% of sales benefitting Washington Wild! It didn’t take much convincing to ask our community to grab one of these incredibly delicious treats. This was the 6th year that Hot Cakes has contributed to our organization’s work, and year after year we are amazed by the amount of support we receive.

“I have a profound love and respect for our wild lands and believe it is extremely important to conserve our natural areas for all of our future generations to explore and enjoy,” said Caramia.

Thank you Caramia and Kevin for your continued support of Washington Wild and the positive impact you are making on our community.
