25 volunteer bakers are signed up to bake a minimum of 6 dozen cookies as a “donation” to the Girls Club. Family recipes and “signature” sweets are encouraged!
We are selling tickets at $15 each in advance ($20 at the door) to Girls Club supporters and the general public. With each ticket purchase, guests will get an empty cookie tin to fill up with delicious treats, and will receive a glass of Prosecco, courtesy of Mionetto Prosecco.
Our bakers will each have a table inside the event where they will sell their cookies for between $0.50 and $2 apiece. All proceeds benefit the Girls Club’s job training programs.
Cookies will be judged by a panel of celebrity chefs and bakers. The winner will be awarded the King Arthur Flour “Best Cookie Award” and a “Baker’s Basket” of amazing kitchen ingredients and accessories valued at over $500!
This year’s panel of judges includes:
Chef Sue Torres of Suenos Restaurant
Nichelle Stephens of the blog Cupcakes Take the Cake
Chef Myriam Eberhardt of DBGB Kitchen and Bar
Jen Shelbo of Maialino
Julie Christopher of King Arthur Flour
Josh Ozersky of the “Taste of America” column for Time Magazine and RachaelRay.com
