Hospital’s cake wins at auction

| August 10, 2015

011COSHOCTON – Coshocton Memorial Hospital’s entry in the 10th annual BPW Cake Auction won both the people’s choice and most unique award. The 3D chocolate and white cake designed to look like the hospital was made by Melissa Corwin. “They said it took a lot of hours to make,” said Emily McBurney, who co-chaired the event. The auction, held Aug. 7 in the Civic Hall on Main Street, helps fund the JoAnn McNeely Working Women Scholarship. McBurney believes about $2,400 was raised from this year’s auction, which was chaired by Linnet Lowe. “A lot of people put a lot of time and effort into their cakes and really produced some creative and unique ones,” McBurney said. “Some of them take it very seriously and I think people look forward to coming.” For more photos, visit Beacon photo by Josie Sellers
