The Rockglen community held a “Desserts Make a Difference” fundraiser for the Saskatchewan division of the Canadian Cancer Society on November 18.
The event took place at the Rockglen Community Hall. There were door prizes and a silent auction of the magnificent cakes and cupcakes on display. There was a supper, wine-tasting and the highlight of the night was the desserts. Guests could also purchase desserts to take home.
All of the decorated cakes and cupcakes were donated. The best bakers in the area were invited to make cakes for the display that would form the silent auction. The creativity with cakes and icing was astounding. There were castles, a succulent garden, Sesame Street characters, delicate winter scenes and many others, and each cake was fascinating to the eye and mouth-watering.
Organizer Liz Roberts explained how cancer had touched the lives of every person donating a cake or cupcakes for the auction, making it more meaningful to donate. Some cakes were made in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.
The event was organized and put together by group of energetic volunteers who donated all the food, set up and ran the event. The Credit Union in Rockglen donated the meat for the supper which was prepared by the volunteers. The Rockglen Co-op covered the costs of the hall. The event was well supported with a steady stream of visitors attending.
