Mark your calendar on Wednesday, July 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. for “Cupcakes & Cocktails” — bringing together Austin’s best bakers and food bloggers to raise funds for Bake A Wish, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing birthday cakes and other baked goods to children in shelters and foster homes, the elderly, disabled, and other underserved communities in the greater Austin area. Please visit www.bakeawishaustin.org to learn more about this amazing organization of caring volunteer bakers.

Tickets are now available for purchase — $35 for non-members, and at a discounted rate of $25 for AFBA members and the volunteers of Bake A Wish (you’ll find the promotional code in an upcoming newsletter).
