That’s right!  One of our favorite events of the year is a little over a month away!  Cakes For A Cause 2014 is back and celebrating its 5th Anniversary!   If you haven’t had the opportunity to join us for this amazing event before here’s what you need to know:

Who: Anyone with a sweet tooth who wants to help a GREAT cause!

What: An evening of fun benefiting the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and Operation Feed including live and silent cake auctions and raffles – there will be something to satisfy every sweet tooth and we are thinking WAY outside the cake pan!

Where: The Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s gorgeous facility at 3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City, Ohio, 43123

When: April 17, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm

Why:  Because there are too many hungry people in the Central Ohio area and this is a fun and simple way to help!

How:  Tickets are on sale now: http://cakesforacause2014.eventbrite.com.  If you’re hoping to attend this year, be sure to get your tickets soon.  We were sold out last year and are anticipating the same for 2014!

Connect:  Come on over to Facebook and LIKE our page.  We post fun photos and important event updates here as we get closer to the event!  We’re also on Instagram this year @cakesforacausecmh


I can’t leave this post with our saying how proud we are of our history…here’s a quick look at how many Central Ohio Families we’ve been able to feed the past four years.  It’s really amazing what one night of cake, cocktails and tasty food can do for hungry families in Central Ohio!

In 2010, Cakes for a Cause easily exceed our original goal of raising 4380 meals or $2190! We more than doubled it and raised 9600 meals in one night and were awarded 2010’s Outstanding New Campaign from Operation Feed!

In 2011, we raised $8753 – 17,500 meals or enough to feed 16 people every meal for an entire year. Once again, with your help we blew our goal of 10,000 meals out of the water!

In 2012, we raised enough to feed 24 people every meal for an entire year – that’s over 26,000 meals!

In 2013, we raised over 27,000 meals for those in need in Central Ohio!

With your help, we can feed even more people in need through Cakes for a Cause 2014 – how many people will we help this year?

Cakes For A Cause 2013 – Coming Soon!

by

Cakes For A Cause is one of my favorite events of the year!   This year’s event will be held Thursday, March 28th at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank from 6pm – 9pm.  We’ve got some really great bakers lined up and a lot of new faces joining us this year!  All of the event proceeds go directly back to the foodbank’s Operation Feed Campaign.

We’ve got five fantastic bakers competing in the Sweet Taste of Victory Competition vying for the Golden Spatula award.  Diva Desserts will be back trying to regain her 2011 title and Kitties Cakes will be back defending their 2012 title!  New to the competition this year is Sue Larson owner of LeGateau, Debby from Home Run Cakes and Cosette the Cake Chick!  I can’t wait to see goodies they bring for everyone to sample!

Cameron Mitchell Catering, Made From Scratch and Two Caterers will be back serving their creative delicious hors d’oeurves.  The Sweet Carrot will also be back to greet guests as they arrive for the event!  Remember those amazing BBQ Sundaes from last year?  OH. MY. GOODNESS.

If you haven’t attended a Cakes For A Cause event, you’ve got to join us this year!  It’s shaping up to be our best event yet!    Get your tickets here via eventbrite.

See you there!

Operation Feed Day + Cakes For A Cause

by

March 1, 2012 marked the start to the 2012 Operation Feed Campaign.  I was honored to be asked to participate in the Operation Feed Day festivities by being a part of their Inspiration Panel Discussion and Happy Hour at the new Shadow Box in the Brewery District.  

Panel members included myself, Emilie Duncan (my partner in crime for Cakes For A Cause and Wedding Skills Workshop), Jeni Britton Bauer from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Roy Hall from the DRIVEN Foundation, Mark Mollenkopf from the Kroger Community Pantry and Martina Desgranges from Ohio Health and Operation Feed’s Kitchen Cabinet.  Our panel was moderated by none other than the entertaining Johnny DiLoretto from FOX 28’s Good Day Columbus.

Cakes For A Cause is coming up on April 5, 2012 from 6pm – 9pm at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank in Grove City.  We’ve got lots of sweet things planned for our live auction, silent auction and raffles!  In addition to the sweet treats we’ve added a few Sweet Experiences to our live auction line up!  Up for grabs is a private dinner for four hosted by NFL player and former Buckeye Roy Hall at Sushi Rock!

Monica Day from NBC 4 is returning to emcee another great event!  Our goal for 2012 is to raise 20,000 meals for hungry families in Central Ohio.  I know that with your support we can meet and far exceed this goal! Your admission ticket will feed one person for one month and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank’s Operation Feed Campaign! Tickets are going fast so you’ll want to grab yours now if you’re wanting to attend!  Click here to register. 

I hope to see you there!
