Hi everyone! So I'm just getting started in the business, meaning I'm just making cakes for friends and family (even if they don't want them!!) and I'd like to do more. Even though I don't have a lot t give I think it would be awesome to host a "Cake Walk" for charity. Has any one hosted a charity event before? I'm in the Army so I was thinking of selecting a charity for wounded soldiers and having a bar crawl, cake auction on Veteran's day 2010 in downtown Columbus. If anyone could provide suggestions or ideas on how to ask for business donations. Thanks everyone!! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
We've done bar crawls for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society ending up with a silent auction and made over $2000. The part that takes the most work is getting donations for your auction. The crawl ended up in a biker bar and those guys are super generous - a lot of vets in there! I don't know what the military population is in your area - but you should do very well.
