Austin Food Bloggers Alliance (AFBA) has announced the success of its most recent charitable activity. Aiming to raise funds for a local non-profit group called Bake-A-Wish, the food blogger alliance invited five local bakers to come up with cocktail-inspired cupcakes . Then it invited everybody to partake of cupcakes and cocktails with very satisfying results. Yum.
We raised over $4500 for Bake A Wish, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit which provides cakes and other baked goods to those in need here in Austin.
It was an incredible evening of cupcakes, cocktails, and a whole lot of fun – all for a great cause. Bake A Wish will be using the funds raised to support and broaden their mission to serve more of those in need in the Austin community. The money will be used to purchase baking supplies as well as partially fund technological improvements for the group’s cake request system. Madelyn Varella, director, and Karen Nichols, the founder and president of Bake A Wish, both see the funds raised as an investment in the future.
