Saturday, April 27th was our 4th Annual World Wide Vegan Bake Sale Day event, once again a fundraiser for the Victoria Vegan Fest! (Which is Canada Day, July 1st in Market Square.)
First, a big thank-you to Green Cuisine for hosting us, it was amazing to have their side room made available to us for the bake sale, even though we were competing with their dessert sales!
Our bakers really outdid themselves this time, and in no particular order big thank-you’s go out to Diana, Hayley, Janine, Line Marie, Sandra, Andrea, Heather, Paulina & Michael, Colleen and Ashley, and this time Lisa and her family brought so many goodies, she needed her own table!!
There was an amazing assortment of goodies, and before Lisa arrived, it was pretty evenly split between gluten and GF items, surprisingly! Lisa tipped the balance however.
Gratitude to all those who made it and were so generous; we raised $560.85 – a decent total, though quite short of our previous World Wide Vegan Bake Sale earnings, which were in the $1200-1500 range. The Festival fundraising goes into paying for transport and accommodations for our speakers and presenters, promotion, insurance and all those other exciting logistics. We’ll be holding more fun fundraiser events, so keep your eyes peeled!
