Bake Sale

Colorado Wildfires Bake Sale

Erin of Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts is hosting a bake sale with all proceeds going to the Colorado Disaster Relief Fund c/o Red Cross to help the Colorado wildfire victims. So far this summer, Colorado has suffered from two destructive fires. Hundreds of homes and acres of land have been destroyed, and thousands of people are still evacuated from their homes. Only one of the fires has been contained, but both continue to burn. Fighting these fires has cost over $50 million so far and there is still work to be done.

Today, July 8th the auction will start. Bidding will begin at $15, with increments of $5 after that.  Everything will be done via email. For every $5 spent (for a winning bid), you will also earn 1 raffle ticket. Winners will be chosen at random at the close of the auction on July 9th. All of the rules and regulations will be spelled out on Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts.

I have donated a batch of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola to the bake sale. Please head over to her site to bid and help spread the word about this great cause!

Bake Sale: The House of Mews

BAKE SALE IS OVER – However if you still wish to make a donation, here’s how:

  • Click on the Paypal link located on The House of Mews Donation Page

When it comes to choosing a pet, I am a big supporter of adoption from nonprofit animal shelters and pet rescue organizations. There are so many loving cats and dogs that need a home! I adopted Brady from a local animal shelter almost 4 years ago (before I knew of The House of Mews) and he is the biggest love muffin ever.

However, nonprofit organizations such as The House of Mews do require some help. Last fall I ran the The House Mews 8th Annual Meowathon and currently am helping to promote their Annual Food Drive with this bake sale! Did you know that just $20 buys an entire month of lunches for four homeless kitties housed in their sanctuary? To make the deal even sweeter, you can also get a baked good for yourself through this bake sale. Even if you are not a cat person I am sure you cannot deny a sweet looking treat. There is even a batch of dog treats up for grabs as well if you have furry friends to please.

Stream videos at UstreamAlso check out the kitten cam shown above, broadcasting live over on HelloGiggles. You can even adopt them! Their goal is to raise awareness and help with resources and adoptions through organizations like The House of Mews.

The bake sale will be begin on Wednesday, April 11th starting at 6:00 am CDT and will end Thursday, April 12th at 11:00 pm CDT. There is a minimum bid of $15 on each item to start, and all proceeding bids must be at least $1 higher. All bids must be emailed to SpiffyCookie@gmail.com with the item you are bidding on in the subject line. Do not leave a bid as a comment because it will not be counted! I will update the bids in a list at the bottom of this post throughout the day.

Upon the closure of bidding time, I will notify the winning bidders in order to confirm instructions for payment, and also to retrieve their mailing address for their winnings. Winners will also be announced in a new post on Friday, April 13th. Winning goods will be sent within a week of the bake sale’s end (by Saturday, April 21st) so long as shipping address is received promptly.

So to break it all down:

  • There is a minimum bid of $15 on each item to start, and at least $1 higher is necessary to overbid.
  • All bids must be emailed to SpiffyCookie@gmail.com with the item you are bidding on in the subject.
  • Open to U.S. residents only.
  • Winning bidders will be contacted by me via e-mail, requesting their mailing address and providing instructions for payment.
  • Winning bidders can expect to have their product shipped within seven (7) days of the bake sale’s end.

You will find all of the treats listed below -  all donated by many of your favorite food bloggers! Please note that the name of each item is above it’s corresponding picture. A summary of all the bids is listed at the very bottom of this post.

Are you ready to duke it out for your favorite treat? May the odds be EVER in your favor! (Oh yes, I said it. I blame Kita.)

Bake Sale: Run for Dave

BAKE SALE IS OVER – However if you still wish to make a donation, here’s how:

  • Mail a check to: Farmers and Merchants Bank, Attn Run for Dave, PO Box 548, McKenzie TN 38201. Make check payable to: Run for Dave

A friend of mine’s twin brother, Dave, was in a motorcycle accident on August 20th. He sustained multiple injuries including a fractured left ankle and a right below the knee amputation. Currently, he is in rehabilitation and once his legs heal, David will need a prosthetic leg to walk again.

Since the gift of walking does not come without a price, his family has organized a “5K Run for Dave” on October 15th, with all proceeds going towards aiding in the purchase of a prosthesis and paying medical bills. Unfortunately I will be unable to participate in the race but figured I should put this blog thing here to good use (other than making people drool over virtual images of food). Why not let my fine readers have a bidding war over what their eyes have been feasting upon? All of the bid funds will be directly sent to the same fund set up for the “5k Run for Dave”.

Enjoying some ice cream!

I am asking if you would join me in this noble cause of spreading the joy of walking and enjoying delicious baked goods. The bake sale will be begin on Sunday, October 2nd starting at 8:00 am CST and will last two full days, ending Tuesday, October 4th at 8:00 am CST.
