When I was growing up, we didn’t have a lot of extra money, but we never went hungry. However, a lot of kids in the US can’t say the same thing. Did you know that 16 million children (that’s 1 in 5) struggle with childhood hunger? Recently, I attended Sandra Lee’s World’s Largest Bake Sale, which was held in Grand Central Station. Proceeds benefited Food Bank of New York City and No Kid Hungry Campaign. It was truly wonderful to see how many people turned out to take advantage of this sweet event! (Read more after the jump).
Sandra Lee, Buddy Valastro from Cake Boss, Dylan Lauren, Wendy Williams, Ty Pennington, and Rosanna Scotto were on hand. I saw Sandra Lee, Ty Pennington, Dylan Lauren, and Rosanna Scotto when I was there. There were some famous New York bakeries present like William Greenberg and sons, Fat Witch, Serendipity 3, Jean Georges, Robicelli’s (their Nutella Whoopie Pies were off the hook!), Insomnia Cookies, Fresco by Scotto, and many more.
I worked with Rosanna on The 10 O’Clock News from ’97-’98, so I was excited to see her behind Fresco By Scotto’s table (her very successful family business). She remembered me — what a classy lady (and absolutely gorgeous!).
And since I also spent 5 years at the Food Network in the mid to late 90’s, I was excited to see the Food Network at the event.
Even if you didn’t get to sample these sweet delights, you can still help; between now and May 31st, Kmart will donate $1.00 to Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry up to $10,000 each time you spread the word on Facebook and Twitter or share a Sandra Lee recipe card with friends and family.
I brought home some treats for my family (boy, was I the hero!) and I was thrilled to be able to support a great cause.
