Don't fret about those pies for Thanksgiving...plan your day around the Upper Cape Family Networks' famous Pie Auction Fund-raiser on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 9 a.m. at the Oak Ridge School in Sandwich. This event gains in popularity each year as those around the Cape have found the secret to their Holiday success - pack their apron away, go bid on over 60 pies and hear their Thanksgiving guests ooh and ah. [Not to mention the money for those oohs and ahs goes to incredible family programming!]
Some pies offered are in disposable tin pans and others are offered up in handmade ceramic pie plates, shrink wrap and ribbons - the selection abounds and presentations are surprisingly creative which makes for even a better dessert to bring over to Aunt Betsy's on Thanksgiving. Don't have time to stick around and raise your bid card?...no problem, visit the sale table and buy from over 100 pies and get on to the rest of your errands! And no fund-raiser is complete without a silent auction table, and here you can find bountiful baskets from local businesses and families, gift certificates and of course, more pies! Love to bake? Even better - call the Mastermind of the event, Tina Toran at 1.508.548.0151 ext. 172 to donate your own pies, then go and pick up someone else's culinary treat.
This auction is devoted to raising awareness, raising funds of course, but also as a family fun day as Debbie and friends will be begin playing music at 10 a.m., so come in and get a good seat! There will be face painters and craft tables, so the kids can play while the adults peruse. Bring your wallet, your kids, other's kids and if you can manage, other people's wallets? and have some fun for a great cause.
