Roasting, Baking and Brewing!

A Special Community Event is Just about Done to Perfection!

As I spoke to friends about how to honor Jim Bailey with the Golden Rule Award, we knew it could not be the typical rubber chicken luncheon...he deserved something fun, engaging and all about community!

It was the brain storm of Violet Olds-Skinner of Baking Under the Influence. She got conversations going at Intuition, I started chatting up Zack at Bold Bean, and the next thing ya know we got a full blown bake off and action packed inspiring event. 

We have 5 bakers creating 1000 mini cupcakes, roasters from around the community to bring out the lighter side of Jim, the Clara White Mission cooking from local donated ingredients, a photo booth that will capture which Pillar of character you stand for, a marketplace that has Conscious Threads and Conscious Eats products, a ballad being sung to honor Jim's wisdom, an all girl band and a pile of cool things to raffle off.

During the month of September, Jim will be profiled by many of the local magazines and newspapers that will show the breadth of his contribution to the many facets of our community.

We have been busy and have a sneaking suspicion that this event will rock it!!  Be sure to check the event page for details and be sure to buy your tickets early!!
