Cakes for a Cause 2010 was one of the events I am most proud of having been a part of! We raised a lot of money (nearly $5000 in one night!) for a GREAT cause (Mid-Ohio Food Bank’s Operation Feed), auctioned and raffled off some really fun items (cake, pies, photo sessions, jewelry – all kinds of sweet tooth tempting treats), had some great food and drinks and generally had an all around great time! To add icing to that awesome cake, we were awarded the Most Outstanding New Campaign from Operation Feed. Yep, really, really proud!
I am thrilled that Cakes for a Cause is back and even sweeter for 2011! Save March 1 for another great evening at the Mid Ohio Food Bank’s beautiful facility in Grove City. Great food, awesome auction items and new for 2011, our Sweet Victory baking competition!
Cakes for a Cause 2010 was an outstanding success and while we shattered our original goal of raising 4380 meals, we were 400 meals short of 10,000. 400 meals or $200. Our official goal this year is to hit that 10,000 meal mark but our pie-in-the-sky, we-don’t-say-it-out-loud, that-would-be-the-best-day-ever is to feed 12 people every meal for a year. 3 families of 4 people. Every meal. That is 13,140 meals or $6570. Even if we fall short, every dollar provides two meals for Operation Feed and helps the hungry right here in Central Ohio. So, can we do it? I KNOW we can hit 10,000 but can we do the bigger goal? We’ll find out on March 1!
