Sweet Charity is one of my favorite events of the year. Hosted by Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley, this event benefits seniors in the local area. What does that mean? Helping take them to doctor's appointments, the grocery store, helping fix little household projects and more.
Area bakers come together to bring their sweetest sweet to battle it out for who has the best bite. With a panel of celebrity judges, music, live painting, silent auctions, this event truly goes all out.
This year, seven entrants competed: Delights by Davis, Cafe Appalachia, Chef Holly McCallister, Sugar Momma Sweets, Edgewood Summit, Ms. Goovy's Kitchen, and Rock City Cake Company.
Celebrity judges included Quincy Wilson, Chef Paul Smith, Steven Keith, and Amanda Barren.
Adam Harris hosted the event, and Steve Himes played music. Ian Bode painted the event live. Mea Cuppa Coffee Bar was there, and United Diary Milk supplied milk.
It was truly an amazing collaboration - plus incredible sponsors who donated money and products.
