Help celebrate Month of the Military Child by participating in VFW Auxiliary 5789’s first ever Dessert Bake-Off fundraiser on Friday, Apr. 28. All proceeds will go to the organization Our Military Kids.

Our Military Kids recognizes the sacrifice of children of deployed National Guard, deployed Reserve, or post 9/11 combat-injured service members by offering extracurricular activity grants that build the child’s self-confidence, enhance family wellness, and strengthen a shared sense of community. Our Military Kids has proudly given out more than 81,000 grants to military families throughout the United States since their founding in 2004.

The Dessert Bake-Off Fundraiser is open to the public and will be held at 329 SE Douglas Street, Lee’s Summit, MO. Dessert entries are $10 for the first entry and $5 for subsequent entries. Judging will be provided by the public. Taste tickets to judge will be $5 for a bite size taste of each entry (these tickets will be sold on site).

The first place winner will be awarded a $25 gift card. Taste testing/judging is from 5 to 8 p.m. and the winner will be announced shortly after.
