There are so many awesome things about this bake sale, I don't know where to begin. First of all, I know SO MANY amazing vegan bakers in Milwaukee! From home bakers who have perfected their treats to professional vegan bakers like Compassionate Cake, to a fabulous gal who wrote her own vegan cookie cookbook (Kelly Peloza); we will not be short on delicious sweet treats!
Second, all the proceeds are going to be donated 50/50 to two great organizations. I've fallen in love with both of them. If you haven't visited The Urban Ecology Center, it's a must-see. The facility is just beautiful and they do amazing work for the environment and the community. I've visited the Heartland Farm Sanctuary twice now and I can't get enough! Oh, how I wish it was closer to where I live so I could volunteer! They rescue farm animals (awesome), but also work with the community to help educate children and give them an opportunity to use their talents to help the animals. They even do nursing home visits to let those residents enjoy the company of a friendly farm animal. Amazing, right?!
The third awesome thing is the wonderful person who runs the bake sale twice a year: Stephanie. Read a great interview with Stephanie written by Kelly Peloza. She not only works hard to organize the event, but is also a fantastic baker and candy-maker.
So, make sure you check out the bake sale and bring your friends, both vegan and non-vegan because there's something for everyone!
