La Table Bake Sale/Silent Auction to Benefit Family Promise

“La Table” is just around the corner.  We are excited about this year’s event and the addition of the Silent Auction/Bake Sale!  All proceeds from the baked good auction will go to Family Promise of Athens.

We are hoping to have a cake or pie from each host and support congregation to display for the Silent Auction at La Tabla.  Most congregations have some special bakers in their midst.  Are you a baker that would like to contribute your specialty to this benefit?

In an effort to make things as simple as possible for everyone, we will have cake containers and rounds available for the bakers in the host room at Milledge Avenue Baptist Church (after 5:00 pm) and also at the Day Center (8:30 am – 5:00 pm) beginning March 15.  

Cakes can be dropped off at the Athens Country Club the day before the event (Monday, March 21) from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.  Or if you need to make alternate arrangements for getting the cake or pie to the Country Club, please contact Patti or Kelly (see below contact information).  They are happy to help. 

We will also be having a “Pastor Bake Off” for the pastor’s cake that can raise the most money for Family Promise!  We have 3 pastors already ready for the challenge!  We would love to have more competition. If you are interested, please let us know. Nothing like a little friendly, competitive fundraising to add excitement to our event.

We hope this year’s La Table fundraiser for Family Promise is the most successful yet!  If you would like to be a  baker, please let us know via this email so that we have an idea of how many desserts we will have for the silent auction.

Please contact Kelly or Patti with any questions or concerns at unioninterfaith@gmail.com.  We are honored to serve FPA alongside you.
