The party will feature the VIP Bakers’ Reception from 6:30-7:30pm, which bakers are invited to attend on us. Join us for entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, an open beer and wine bar, a silent auction and, of course – the cakes! Afterwards, stay for the main event at 7:30pm. Later in the evening, we’ll award prizes to the winning bakers. Winners will be reported in local media outlets, The Midwife Center newsletter and blog, and social media.
