Check out Grandbaby Cakes at The Taste of Chicago on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 5:30 pm in the Kitchen with Mariano’s Tent! I will be sharing some fun recipes!
GrandBaby Cakes sweetly presented A Charitable Confection on Friday, April 25, 2015. It was the most trend-forward food event in Chicago, with over 500 of Chicago’s finest in attendance to support fundraising for Project Orange Tree.
A Charitable Confection’s invited guests will included local celebrities, socialites, and media along with Chicago’s top culinary talents, dessert enthusiasts, foodies, and most popular bloggers.
Doing good never tasted so good! Enjoying not only live entertainment, hor d’oeuvres and fine liquor, but the event featured the best desserts from Chicago’s top bakeries and industry experts. Attendees helped to support the newest mission by the committed teens of Project Orange Tree: Project Oasis.
Championed by the nonprofit Lupe Fiasco Foundation, Project Orange Tree is an active Chicago-based youth movement to stop the violence by both educating teens about its systemic causes and empowering youth to change the cycle.
Project Oasis allows for the purchase land in Chicago’s most urban areas to transform them into much needed community gardens in food deserts and safe, peaceful areas for the surrounding youth.
America’s youth are worth fighting for so Grandbaby Cakes gladly supports Project Orange Tree with its inaugural event. If your company would like more information on how to partner with GrandBaby Cakes for next year’s event and over 30,000 followers, please contact Belle Nartey of Support Your Cause Consulting at 312-725-3534 or Jocelyn Delk Adams of Grandbaby Cakes at email@example.com.
