Northshire Bookstore is hosting our sixth annual cake auction to benefit the Book Angel Program.
The public is invited to a wine and cheese reception where there will be bidding for donated, book-themed cakes. All proceeds will be used to purchase books for children who benefit from the Book Angel Program.
Then at 6:00 Gesine Bullock-Prado, the host of Food Network's Baked in Vermont series, will be presenting her new book Fantastical Cakes: Incredible Creations for the Baker in Everyone. For more about the book presentation click here.
An integral part of the Northshire Bookstore, the Book Angel Program celebrates its 25th year this December. Each year, names of children who may not otherwise have access to books are collected from local schools; during the holiday season, new books are selected by booksellers and customers to be given as gifts to each child. Books are then delivered to the recipients just in time for the holidays. This is a great opportunity for the local community to come together and celebrate the coming months of giving; schools, businesses, and families are encouraged to come and bid on a cake.
