3rd Annual Venus Bake Sale
To all those who bought a pie at Jett's Espressoria in June of 2011 to show your support for Greenhouse Scholars and Venus de Miles, thank you for making the 2nd annual Venus Bake Sale a smashing success! In two days I sold 62 pies and brought in over $1400 in donations (FYI, my investment in supplies was a little over $300, so the true profit was huge!). All of this money goes to support local charity Greenhouse Scholars, which provides mentorships and scholarships for first generation college and under-resourced Colorado college undergraduates.
Last year the article and online interview run by the Daily Camera and the Colorado Daily really helped to make the event a success. With your help and a little luck, this year's sale will be even better. I am hoping to raise $2,000 with this summer's one-weekend pie sale, which means I'll be baking 80 pies this time. Feel free to put in an order as far in advance as you'd like. About 50% of the pies were pre-ordered last year, and I'd like to up that to 75% this year. So if you know you'll be around that weekend, you can place your order any time (see details below).
As with last year, the minimum donation per pie is $25, all of which goes to Greenhouse Scholars and Venus de Miles as a 100% tax deductable donation. As a volunteer mentor for Greenhouse, I can personally vouch that your dollars will be well spent.
I will be setting up shop in front of Jett's Espressoria on Pearl Street, and will be selling my pies from 9 am till whenever they run out!
