UPDATE: Due to overwhelming response from our city’s amazing home bakers, we’re extending the bake sale an extra hour so we can sell all the goods! 2 – 6 pm!
We know about earthquakes here. Very few of us have ever experienced one as strong as 7.0, but we can only imagine the lasting devastation affecting every aspect of life in Haiti after such a huge tremor. Please join us in doing what we can (baking cookies, eating cupcakes, hanging out at Scoops, raising money) to help out the people of Haiti.
We will be featuring a dizzying array of sweets from both professional kitchens (Spork Foods, Whisk LA whoopie pies, and Bitter Sweet Treats, Valerie Confections, Large Marge Sustainables) and and local homes, as well as a few jars of choice homemade jams, and all proceeds from the bake sale will go to Doctors Without Borders‘ Emergency Relief Fund. Doctors Without Borders a Nobel Prize-winning international humanitarian organization working to meet the overwhelming medical needs of post-earthquake Haiti and throughout countries where survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
WHEN: Sunday, January 31, 2010. 2 – 5 pm 6 pm!
WHERE: Scoops Gelato. 712 N Heliotrope Dr. 90029. In East Hollywood, just north of Melrose, between Normandie and Vermont.
