DENVER, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sherry Comes, President and Founder of CoffeeCakes.com, an Internet retailer of high-end baked goods and gifts, has received the "Outstanding Women in Business" award from The Denver Business Journal and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). The winners were announced at an awards banquet held at the Denver Marriott City Center Hotel on August 7. This year's Outstanding Women in Business award recognized twelve exceptional Denver business women who have made significant contributions to both local business and the community. The winners were chosen based on their demonstration of innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishment, and community leadership. "I am honored and thankful to have been selected for this award," Comes said. "My personal definition of success goes beyond business models and profits -- it's measured by what I have done to encourage others and to help in my community." When reviewing Sherry's considerable achievements, consideration was made to the fact that she is not only the President and Founder of CoffeeCakes.com, but is also a full-time executive for IBM. At IBM, Sherry has earned the rarely attained title of "Distinguished Engineer." At CoffeeCakes.com, customers always come first, and the company has consistently won a "Five Star Top Service Rating" since 1995. CoffeeCakes.com donates a portion of its proceeds to finding a cure for a potentially life-threatening but little-known genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis (NF). CoffeeCakes.com formed an alliance with NF Inc. (an organization committed to supporting those affected by NF) and actress Gillian Anderson (Agent Scully, The X-Files), a tireless spokesperson for the disease, to facilitate the donation of company profits. CoffeeCakes.com also supports the Children's Tumor Foundation, another organization associated with NF. Sherry became active in NF advocacy when her adopted son Sebastian was diagnosed with the disease in 2005. Sherry adopted Sebastian from Guatemala, rescuing him from below primitive living conditions, already aware that he probably carried the NF1 gene. As well as its extensive support of NF, CoffeeCakes.com supports local charities and fund-raisers including the "Empty Bowl" which supports victims of domestic violence, cancer research, and heart disease prevention. Sherry Comes received her award in the Jean Yancy Small Business Award category. To make a donation to NF Inc., visit http://www.nfinc.org.
