BPW Cake Auction to have sea theme this year

| August 21, 2018

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Business and Professional Women will have their 13th annual cake auction on Saturday, Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. in the Frontier Power Community Room, 770 S. Second St., Coshocton.

Create a cake resembling anything to do with the ocean, sea life or maybe your favorite movie that revolves around the ocean! Please include an incentive or goodies that will entice bidders to want to buy your cake. You do not have to bake the cake yourself. There are plenty of cake bakers in Coshocton County that would be willing to get creative with the ocean theme this year.  Provide a cake to be auctioned off plus any other incentive that you feel will make your cake enticing for people to bid on.

This year they have a Kids Cake Baking Contest. Parents help your kids preheat the oven, fire up their competitive spirit, and register them for the new Kid Cake Contest. The public will view and vote on the winner and first place will receive a trophy. Cakes will be auctioned off at 4 p.m., so stick around and bid on your favorite cake.

Cakes can be dropped off on Friday, Sept. 21, from 5 – 7 p.m. and on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Cake viewing and voting is from 2 – 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Send your reservation by fax, text message, screenshot or e-mail and provide us with your e-mail address so that details can be sent to you in the future.

Reservation form deadline is Sept. 14 and can be faxed to: 740-623-6520 (Attn: Emily), text message/screenshot to: (740) 502-7903 or e-mail to: [email protected]

Coshocton BPW provides scholarships to those individuals attending a higher education institute through the Joan McNeely Working Women’s Scholarship Fund.  In May of 2018, BPW was able to give out three $1,000.00 scholarships. BPW continues to have their cake auction fundraiser each year in order to raise money for their scholarship program and to help various projects within Coshocton County. The benefit for businesses within Coshocton County to participate in this BPW fundraiser is the exposure it gives a business through the media showing support for working women returning to college to further their education.

If participating in the cake auction that day isn’t feasible, businesses and individuals have the option of being a sponsor for the BPW cake auction.

There are three levels of sponsorship: Gold – $250 – $300, Silver – $150 – $200 and Bronze – $50 – $100. Checks may be made out to: BPW/COSHOCTON and mailed to: PO BOX 656, Coshocton, Ohio 43812. Contact person for sponsorships is Tomma Bordenkircher at 740-622-0009 or [email protected].
