"Cakes for a Cure" Event on "Your Carolina" TV
We got some exciting news from Patti Gagstetter, one of the organizers of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life "Cakes for a Cure" big fundraising event cakelava is participating in on April 24th in Greenwood, South Carolina. Patti filmed a segment with "Your Carolina" TV in which she talks about the event and mentions the calendar that Rick made a cake for. This segment will probably only run through the weekend so be sure to catch it while you can. You can read more about this event and the calendar in our previous blog post. All cakes designed for the "Cakes for a Cure" fundraiser calendar had the theme of "With a Song in My Heart", and Rick's chosen song was Hawaii's own Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's hauntingly beautiful version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". You'll have to wait to see the cake until the calendar comes out, along with Hawaii photographer Stephen Ludwig's images of the incredible cake! Ashley Vicos, Norm Davis, Anna Ellingson, and Rick Reichart, are just a few of the designers asked to participate in this very special event. For all you East Coast cakers, out there, this is one great event to support! Unfortunately, Rick and I are not able to attend the event due to previous client commitments. We will be thinking of Patti, Valerie, our fellow cake designers and of course, the cancer survivors, who this event will most benefit. Please support this amazing event if you have the opportunity. If you are not able to attend in person, you may show your support by purchasing t-shirts, aprons, or calendar of the cakes, or you can make a pledge directly to the cause. You may also follow all the news on the Greenwood, South Carolina chapter of Relay for Life's Facebook fan page. Mahalo!
