At Cakespy, we’re all about lending a helping hand, so certainly we think that Spark’s Youth Empowerment Program is worth supporting: they match middle-school youth with apprenticeships, giving them valuable experiences which keeps them engaged in their studies and interested in school.
But we’d be lying if we said that the added benefit of dessert wouldn't make us slightly more interested in supporting their efforts.
So when SF Correspondent and Cake Gumshoe Bridget tipped us off to their Sugar Rush event, we were all ears. This coming Monday (Nov. 5), the Spark Program is pairing with several local bakers and artisans like Coco-Luxe Confections, Claire’s Squares and Patisserie Philippe who will be offering up sweet treats; there will also be a wine / social hour and a silent auction; proceeds will go toward further development of their programs.
So have your cake, and feel good about it, too.
The Sugar Rush event will take place Monday, November 5, 6-8 p.m. at 111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna Street, San Francisco. Tickets are $25 if purchased in advance on brownpapertickets.com. The event is 21+. For more information, visit sparkprogram.org.
Thank you to the Spark Program for letting us use their image!
