Our tenth annual Cakes for a Cause is almost here! The event will be held April 23 and 24 at the Miami Valley Centre Mall. Here’s how it works:
Local merchants, individuals and non-profit organizations will enter cakes. Each cake has an incentive with it – possibly a gift certificate, gift basket, tickets to an event, or even a party – that is auctioned with the cake. Cakes may be made to illustrate the year’s theme – Take Ten!
Cakes will be placed on display in the mall near Bath and Body Works on April 23. All will be in place for viewing by the public by 5:00 PM. Several VIP cakes will be auctioned live at 6:00 PM – the incentives with these cakes are especially fun and valued at $500 or more. The public may also vote for People’s Choice cake and place pre-bids on their favorite cakes and incentives.
Cakes will be on display Friday, April 24, from 10 AM until noon when the auction begins. Each cake will be auctioned during a specific time period, which can be found on lists provided at the mall, around town and on this website starting April 20. People may bid live at the mall or by phoning in bids to 778-3422. When the bidding period is complete for that cake, the high bidder will be called with directions to pick up the cake prior to 5:30 PM. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.
