Piece of Cake fundraiser for Backpack Buddies

Piece of Cake "Celebrity" Cake Decorating Contest & Auction is one of the sweetest fundraisers you will find in the area! And, the proceeds are directly invested in United Way's Backpack Buddies program.

Area businesses, non-profits, and organizations form teams and have 45 minutes to create their cakes. Teams also bring additional items, such as gift certificates, merchandise, tickets, and more, to create their cake packages. A live auction is held to sell each cake package, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Backpack Buddies food pack program.

From 11:15 am until 12:00 noon, enjoy watching local “celebrity” teams showcase their creativity and talent decorating cakes; then, take part in the live cake auction, starting shortly after 12:00 noon.
The live auction features the cakes that were just decorated, PLUS items that create valuable cake packages, such as gift certificates, merchandise, tickets, and more. The cake package that receives the highest bid wins the distinguished Piece of Cake competition and bragging rights!
In addition, YOU can help determine the People’s Choice winner by voting for your favorite cake by placing money in that team’s jar.  The team that raises the most money wins!
