On Sunday, May 17, there's a bake sale at Foster & Dobbs Authentic Foods that will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. But lest you think that all you'll find is stale cookies and over-frosted cakes made with Crisco, the person baking these goods is the pastry chef at Pascal Sauton's Carafe Bistro, Meredith Mortenson, who also occasionally helps out behind the cheese counter at F&D. Top notch person that she is, she's committed to personally raising $5,000 for the Society as well as participating in their Pacific Crest Olympic Triathlon. What better excuse are you gonna have than eating dessert for a higher purpose?
Details: Bake Sale to Benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Sun., May 17, 11 am-3 pm. Foster & Dobbs Authentic Foods, 2518 NE 15th Ave. Phone 503-284-1157.
