Rosalinda Garcia is the owner of the Fargo bakery Bella’s Dulce Sweets & Treats, named after her oldest daughter Bella.
From an early age, Bella loved to create and she especially enjoyed baking and decorating treats. Rosalinda uses Bella’s Dulce Sweets & Treats to give back to the Fargo-Moorhead community. The business raises money for the homeless, puts on a Christmas event that helps the very poor, and provides free gifts to families in need.
“Anything extra earned is used to give back to other causes dear to Bella’s heart,” Rosalinda said. This has also included care packages to local shelters and special cards to patients in long-term facilities.
Over the years, the Garcia family has encountered trying times with medical issues for Bella. Bella has a vascular malformation tumor on her arm that has required many costly treatments and surgeries at Mayo Clinic.
“We are no strangers to struggle,” Rosalinda said. “We realized that life is hard for everyone. Everyone is going through something, and sometimes those are far worse than what we are dealing with. Our family is committed to being a strong team and working together to support our own needs, but we will never stop giving back to the larger community in any way we can.”
Despite these hardships, the Garcia family remains committed to giving back to those in need in their community. So we wanted to give back to this generous and resilient family.
Bella recently received tickets to Legoland through Merlin’s Magic Wand Foundation, so the Wishing Well covered the travel and lodging expenses so the entire family could have a joyful, fun experience together.
While on the trip, they received the difficult news that Bella’s tumor had spread and connected to her main vascular system. Bella has a dedicated team at Mayo Clinic working on a treatment plan for her. Still, the increased medical expenses and travel and lodging to out-of-area providers have created financial hardship for the family.

There will also be a benefit for Bella on September 14 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Neighborhood Church in Fargo.
