Glendon School held their annual Cake Auction on April 6th, right before Spring Break and were able to raise a good chunk of change for a local family that recently lost everything in a fire.
“It went pretty well,” says teacher and organizer Brittany Norton. “It was actually very well attended and we made just over 4,800 dollars.”
The proceeds from the event will all went to the Gardipee-Somers-Horton family, who were recently victims of a house fire. Norton estimates about fifty people attended the auction for sixty four different cakes. Some cakes sold for over three hundred dollars. The theme for this year’s auction was “Mother Nature” with some of the cakes going with it while others struck out on their own path.
“The family was very grateful,” says Norton. “They were also in attendance at the event and speaking with them afterwards, they were very humbled and very thankful that the community was supporting them.”
