Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale This Saturday at Aventura Mall
Chef Allen Susser and Jennifer Behar (owner of Jennifer's Homemade) will co-host the Seventh Annual Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale from noon - 4 pm this Saturday.
Along with 20 other top South Florida restaurants and bakeries, the pair will raise money for Share Our Strength.
Participants include: Grand Lux Cafe, Nordstrom Cafe Bistro, The Coffee Bean, Ocean Prime, Alisa's Painted Bistro, Turnberry Ocean Colony, The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort and Spa, Chef Allen, Florida International University, Edda's Cakes, Hot Cookies, Cookies by Shar, Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Caramel Swirls, Chocolate 4 Charity, Forever Sweet Cakes by Design, Jennifer's Homemade, Joe's Stone Crab, Nestle Water, and Whole Foods Market.
The event, held at Aventura Mall's Center Court, will feature baking demonstrations, raffles and a D.J. Guests purchase tickets for $1 ($10 for a "bakers dozen) and exchange them for baked goods.
All baked goods are donated so all monies go directly to Share Our Strength, helping to feed kids in south Florida. In fact, any extra unsold food will also go directly to the organization.
Behar, who is co-chairing the event for the third year, said "This is a great outing for both kids and parents. We hold a lot of events for Share Our Strength, like Taste of the Nation, but they're all geared to adults. This is a great way to get kids involved in this wonderful organization". In fact, Behar's daughter will be alongside her, helping sell sweet treats.
